The Brahma is an American breed of. It was developed in the United States from birds imported from the Chinese port  and was the principal American meat breed from the 1850s until about 1930.

The Brahma was the principal meat breed in the US from the 1850s until about 1930. Some birds were very large: weights of about 8 kg (18 lb) for cocks and 6 kg (13 lb) for hens were recorded.

The light Brahma has a base color of white, with black edged in white and a black tail; the saddle-feathers of the cock are striped with black.

We at Sunset Valley Chicks are focussing on our light brahma but also the partridge varieties of Brahma in standard.

Weight averages about 5.5 kg (12 lb) for cocks and 4.5 kg (9.9 lb) for hens.

Eggs are medium light brown eggs and they can lay between 3-5 eggs per week.

People love the fact they are gentle giants and the roosters can grow up to 75cm in height.

They are super friendly and very adaptable to add to any flock.
