The Light Brahma breed is known as the “gentle giants” in the chicken world. These wonderfully peaceful birds were originally brought over from India by way of China. They were brought to the US in the mid 1800s. The Light Brahmas is a favorite for those that enjoy the larger bodied breeds. The Light Brahma is primarily white feathered with very striking black with green sheened lacing around their necks, tails, and legs. The leg and foot feathering gives this already big bodied breed a wonderfully unique look and even bigger appearance. The adorable leg and foot feathering gives them the illusion of stomping around the yard in big fluffy boots. These are known to be some very gentle birds despite their large stature and make a great choice for families that will frequently handle and care for their pets. The Light Brahma can be broody and do make wonderful mothers if given the opportunity. The eggs that they produce are medium to large brown eggs. They do well within mixed flocks of other very docile breeds and could be bullied if put with more active breeds. Fully grown females will reach about 9 1/2 pounds while males can reach 12 pounds.
