The Brahma is one of the larger breeds of Chicken and originated in the United States of America although some say it has strong Chinese and / or Indian connections as well.
At the end of the day, they are very nice Hens to have!

Known to have excellent temperaments, they are not known as great layers and often seen more as Pets or Birds for Show. Again this is some and some, I've heard yearly yields between 120 and 250 eggs per year.

They're good diggers, but beware....they eat a lot !! A small price to pay for a beautiful bird supplying you with a good size breakfast!
