Customer Product Reviews
First time getting chicks from the hatchery, researched the Brahmas for their temperment, and the ladies I am raising are just the best!! Big brown eggs, stick around the yard, easy to handle, just like their description in the book. Worth the investment!!!!!
I ordered 25 Black Giants almost a year ago and also got a rare chick. He turned out to be a Dark Brahma. He is the funniest bird ever, picking fights with cats on our farm. He is also very sweet. He likes to be picked up and cuddled and is also very striking and wonderful to look at! Thanks so much and I hope to be ordering again very soon!! -Ashley
Five years ago I ordered 5 Brahmas, they are so lovely, stately, good natured birds. "Sam" my rooster was 12 lbs. He would come when you called him. I still have "Sophie". She is 10 lbs and loves to snuggle up to you. We don't even have TV any more; watching the chickens is far better! Sincerely, Jenny
My experience with dark brahma chickens has been nothing but positive. The friendliest hen I ever owned was a beautiful dark brahma hen. They are very quiet and have a very pleasant temperament.
I would like to say that your Dark Brahmas are top quality. my brother had shown his Dark Brahmas and took home best of show. Hercules is our favorite bird on the farm. thanks again - Kathryn
This is the best Hatchery. The chicks come so lively and healthy. I rate this the #1 hatchery, and will always order my fowl and poultry from here.
