does anyone know?
Light brown, really... tinted.
Here's the last batch of light brahma eggs that I set. As you can see a nice variety of browns.
Oh Jul... I'm jealous... I can't wait until I have that many Brahma eggs in the 'bator!!! Mine lays a light brown with a pinkish tinge - probably like the medium brown eggs in your incubator. Did you have a good hatch??
Can Showme31 please tell me about how big the Brahma eggs are? I have my first two eggs and I don't know who laid it. Thanks
There's a ruler in the picture... But they lay regular sized eggs. They may be small at first as most pullets lay small eggs, but they're considered Large eggs.
As for size when I run the 2 pens together I can't tell the difference between the brahma eggs and the others (barred rock, black aussies, buff orps and a couple of mixed breeds).
I didn't get a really good hatch, but I didn't expect too. I had 12 hatch out and 1 of those didn't make it. These eggs sat out in the coop for 4 days in the Missouri summer sun. I had been away and didn't want to just toss them, so I thought what the hay. I didn't really need anymore babies, I have 15 lt brahma chicks in the garage also.
If you brahma owners had an older RIR offered as a swap for a 6 month old Light Brahma, would you take it?
I have two light Brahmas, and I love how they run to the feeder. But I'm not sure if they are laying yet. I really want to up my laying rate. Another farmer is willing to trade me but her RIR is 6 months older than my bird, and it looks a bit beat up on its back from too many roosters. Thoughts?
