I've got 2 lovely Brahmas but they are soooooo timid! Out of 22 birds they are the only ones that ever get feather pecked - particularly by my 3 Pekins :oops: ... When they were little and the others were full of beans they would huddle together in the corner of the brooder tembling, facing away from the other chicks. I love them to bits as they are so lovely :D and would have more like a shot!

Good to see a Brahma post... :P
I have 2 gorgeous Brahmas - David and Victoria Peckham - they too are quite timid compared to the others - they've had some youngsters this year who stick together - but come feeding time, do get their beaks pushed out by the others... They are well known for being a placid breed - they make great pets and are a nice size to handle. My 2 are quite the celebrities around here and go visiting the neighbours. I'll have to try and post some photos - if I ever find out how to do it!
Regards,
Debbie

Nice Light Brahma. As you say the wet is a problem especially with the foot feathers. Good hackle feathers by the looks of them.

Just picked this lady up today, anyone know a good source for more in north west/north wales? Her friend was sold before I could buy them both, she has a trio of warrens for company but I'd like something more her size.

My first chickens and I have spent the entire evening just watching them. Fascinating to watch :)

This may seem a silly question, I know she is a brahma but does anyone know what colour or type she would be described as.

Hi,

we got had a brahma and a silkie when they were very young and they
were very good friends, it turns out that the silkie was a boy, and as
we live in surburbia we had to take him back, we have now added 2
rhode island reds as we really wanted eggs, there is no fighting but
our brahma seems really sad and lonley, will she join the other 2
eventually? thanks Pippa

I would have thought she would join them eventually. Just watch the Rhodes aren't picking on her as they can be spitefull, whereas from what I have heard Brahmas are more placid- she is probably wary of them. What about getting another Brahma to keep her company ?
For all the troubles in the world, I turn to ducks...
