Originating in India, Light Brahma chickens are well-adapted to both warm and cold temperatures. These big, black and white feathered chickens reach a weight of about 9 to 12 pounds, so they are preferred for meat production. They are also decent egg-layers, and they can be broody hens that make good mothers if you are planning on breeding Brahmas. They are very gentle, calm and docile, so they make good pets and companions on family farms. They are so docile that they can be bullied by more aggressive breeds, so it is best to place Light Brahmas with other docile chickens.
