Acquired: Bred animal myself
Posted Jul 29, 2015
When we raised Brahma chickens we only had males. We raised them primarily as meat birds. The quality of meat is wonderful! However, I am not sure about their egg production or size as I only had males. They were great foragers and handled the cold quite well. I would prefer to have a Brahma rooster watching my flock because they are large birds but have a good temperament for a rooster.
The downside to owning Brahma chickens is they do not like heat, and they are not very pretty. They are mainly one color. Also because they are great meat birds they grow to be quite large and for that reason do require a lot of food. I would recommend Brahma chickens because they do serve multiple purposes and their temperament makes them easier to handle.
