Brahma

The Brahma is one of the larger breeds who tend to be very docile and easy-going. They are very accepting of newcomers and different breeds of chickens. Their appearance is very elegant---and have beautiful feathering, which helps make them do well in cold climates. Their bodies are very broad and deep, with full breasts. They have either orange or yellow feathered legs and feet. Brahmas have a pea or triple comb and small wattles.
