    So I have fallen in love with brahmas from my recent forum addiction, and now I am looking into a Brahma for my flock!! She will be a hen, but the thing is... I can't decide if I should get Dark, Light or Buff Brahma!! Please help because I need to add her to my flock before they start laying eggs.

    Qualties I am lookoing for:

    easily handled
    good layer
    friendly
    pretty-feathered

    Lol! [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Thanks--- I don't think there's anywhere I can get those rare breeds, (I'm in the center and busiest part of Atlanta), so I think my only options are Buff, Light, and Dark.

    I think the personalities should be similar (of course each bird is an individual), so it depends on which appearance you prefer. I like the darks.

    I hate darks. Just saying. I think they are terribly ugly. lol

    I like lights the best, but buff is a close second.
