Light Brahma Chickens were introduced to the United States in the mid 19th century from China and imported to England in 1840. The American Poultry fanciers refined the original stock into a large stately breed. They make a good dual-purpose breed and though they may only lay 3 or 4 eggs a week, they are known for good winter production. Brahmas do good in confinement but even better if they have access to an outdoor run. They are mellow, quite hardy, have feathered feet, and make good pets. They thrive in northern climates.
Light Brahma hens begin laying around 20 weeks and males are ready for processing at 24 weeks.
Average mature weight: roosters 12 lbs., hens 9 1/2 lbs.
