Brahmas are calm, friendly birds that make good pets or exhibition fowl.
Brahma males are generally not aggressive towards humans. They are not skittish or easily scared, making them a popular choice for families with children.
Due to their docile demeanor, Brahmas can be easily trained so that they can be handled by almost anyone.
Large Fowl Brahmas should be hand trained when young because their large size makes them difficult to control in the early stages of training if they are full grown.
L/F Brahmas are massive in appearance, in part due to profuse, loose feathering and feathered legs and toes. Approximate weights:
- Cock - 12 pounds (5.443 kg)
- Cockerel - 10 pounds (4.536 kg)
- Hen - 9 pounds
- Pullet - 8 pounds
