In the chicken world, the Light Brahma chickens are known as the “gentle giants.” These 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; they mostly have white feathers with striking black and green sheened lacing around their necks, tails, and legs. The feathering on their feet and legs gives Light Brahma chickens a unique and even bigger appearance. Their feathering gives them the illusion of stomping around in big fluffy boots. Fully grown female Light Brahmas will reach about 9 1/2 pounds, and males can reach 12 pounds. Their eggs are medium to large in size and are brown in color.
Despite their large size and appearance, this particular breed is known to be very gentle. They make great pets and egg producers for famers and families alike. Light Brahma chickens can be broody and they make wonderful mothers if given the opportunity. The Light Brahma breed does well within mixed flocks of other very passive breeds; they’re so docile they could be bullied if put with more active breeds.
