First off, my husband is not a chicken lover. He doesn't mind them but truth-be-told, he is a tad fearful of them.

Some people just don't like birds I guess!

However, he LOVES Brahmas! They are big, beautiful, and have gorgeous feathered legs. They coo beautifully as chicks and nothing seems to bother these birds.

It's nice to have a bird that is so "chill" however, I have lost more of this breed to hawks and predators than any other. We also live near a large cornfield and I swear these ladies get lost in their pursuit for tasty treats and can't find their way back home.

With that being said, I wouldn't recommend them for free -ranging, unless you live in a safe area. Too many of my Brahmas disappeared.

A Note About Climate: These gals do very well in many kinds of climates, however, their feathered legs tend to get dirty and wet easily. So, if you live in a cold, or wet, climate make sure their tootsies stay dry and clean!
