These have the same large size and quiet temperament of the other Brahmas. They were developed much later, however, and are still very rare. The color pattern is the same as the Light Brahma except that the white sections are replaced by golden buff. The black markings are identical on both varieties. The buff and black combination and great size make this variety a truly beautiful and regal bird. Buff Brahmas lay brown eggs, will set, are gentle, and are very nice show birds.
As a reminder, to help ensure a safe arrival to you, the minimum number of chicks for each order prior to April 1st is 25. On and after April 1st, the minimum number of chicks required is 15. You can mix and match any type of baby chick in your order to reach the applicable chick minimum order. If ordering any bantams, we require a minimum of 15 bantams per order.

Customer Product Reviews
I ordered four Buff Brahmas this spring and ended up with three hens and a rooster. I took three of them to the county fair as a breeding trio and won several blue ribbons both in 4-H and open class. I think I've found my favorite breed of chickens! They are absolutely gorgeous birds, very tame, and delightful to have around the yard. Thank you, Murray McMurray!
I was so happy with the Buff Brahmas that I got from you last year that I ordered more this year. They are beautiful, very gentle and calm birds that consistently lay a large egg. My new additions are healthy and active and growing well. Thanks for offering this great breed!
We love our Buff Brahmas - they truly are gentle and sweet, even the rooster. They are wonderful around our two young boys and a delight to have. Thank you Murray McMurray!
We love our Buff Brahma pair. We originally wanted just hens in our hen house, but were pleasantly surprised to get a lovely Buff Brahma rooster and a hen. He is timid yet very polite around our kids. He is stunning to look at, and his crow is wonderful and unique. He is very proud. A great rooster for our family flock. Thanks!
Buff Brahmas are a very gentle bred of large foul. They are a rarer bred and are extreamly good for 4-H shows. Thanks for having this bred, McMurray Hatchery.
I am so pleased with my Buff Brahamas. They are large gentle creatures just as you stated in the catalog. Thanks so much!
Buff brahmas are the smartest chickens I have ever had. They do very well as a show bird or as a pet! Thank you McMurray Hatchery!
