Often referred to as the “King of All Poultry,” the Brahma chicken is appreciated for its great size, strength, and vigor. I prize them for their wonderful calm temperament.
They were developed in the early to mid 1800's from breeds imported from China and India.
From the beginning Brahmas have been recognized not only for their unusual appearance and size, but also for their practical qualities. First and foremost Brahmas are found to be extremely hardy chickens especially to cold winter climates.
They are also good egg-layers for their size. Considered a superior winter-layer, they produce the bulk of their eggs from October to May. The eggs of the Brahma are large and uniformly medium brown in color.

Blue and splash partridge pullets, hatched February 2018
Above, Isabel Brahma cockerel 10 mos old, and a blue partridge Brahma pullet of the same age. This guy is part of my Brahma breeding projects. I am working on creating Isabella (lavender partridge) Crele, and lavender Crele Brahmas of high quality correct type, pigment and pattern.
Above right, blue partridge cockerel, and below, (black) Partridge Brahma. Both 8 mos at time of photo.
Pictures of Crele Brahma project birds will be added as they mature. Crele is a barred partridge. Lavender Crele will eventually also be available.
Definition of poultry "PROJECTS"
I am working on 2 different projects within the Brahma breed.
"Project" refers to a process of developing a particular color or pattern that may be rare or non-existent within a particular breed.
This is done when a breeder want to challenge themselves with the complex genetics involved, as a hobby and goal.
When I identify a variety of bird as a project when I offer for sale, that means it is a work-in-progress. That means I cannot guarantee that the color, type, or other complexities of genetic inheritance are guaranteed to mature as ideal examples, or to breed true.
But you will get to see pictures of the actual parents or mature siblings when available.
The Isabel (or Isabella, which is a lavender partridge) and Crele Brahmas are project colors. Various degrees of barred (cuckoo) and lavender/split birds will be available. I will do my best to identify the characteristics for you and the genetics they carry if purchased.
The Blue, Black and Splash are NOT projects and are fairly consistent type and quality. I do my best to maintain quality. varied genetics in my flock.
I will be hatching Brahmas next in 2019. I will be growing out many of my chicks to keep for future breeding.
However, I will occasionally have young grow-outs or young hens (1-2 years), or cockerels occasionally available. Contact for more information, availability, or to be put on a waiting list.
I will be breeding predominantly blue, black, splash partridge. I will also have some Brahams which are pure for breed, but not for color (called splits) since I may cross with other color varieties to improve the type (size/structure, overall quality) of my birds. when this is the case some beautiful, unique colors and patterns occur. I will always notify buyer when birds they are purchasing are likely/or not, to carry for other colors/patterns.
