    Hi everyone,

    I saw chickens like the ones pictured at our county fair but there was no breed tag on the cage. I had to dig for a long time to find a picture on the internet and it didn't identify them either. Can anyone tell me what they are? I'm in love!!

    They are Brahmas, and look to be porcelain/lavender colouring. That is a non standard colour and I have never see it before.

    Thank You so much. When I typed "Lavender Brahma" into google search the very picture I posted popped up along with several others.

    Anyone have them that share what they are like to own? Temperament etc........

    The temperament will be the same as any other brahma, you can find lots of info on here and other sites.

    Looks like the U.K. version of a Lemon Blue Brahma.
