We at Sunset Valley Chicks are focussing on our light brahma but also the partridge varieties of Brahma in standard. The Brahma Partridge Colour was only re-introduced as a pair to Sunset Valley Chicks so we are looking forward to growing this awesome breed and colour and offering our followers chicks in 2022 and beyond.
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. Though being a large bird we wouldn’t put the rooster in a small bantam pen without supervision.
