Alongside our Buff Columbian Brahmas we also keep a breeding group of Lemon Pyle Brahmas. These large birds look very impressive and look great when roaming about free range.
Despite their size, they are docile and easy to handle, so they make good pets. They lay a few eggs each week during their laying period, but they won't supply the family with fresh eggs by themselves.
They can go broody and will contentedly sit on a clutch of eggs, but because they are large birds with big feet, they can be a bit clumsy on the eggs.
That aside, they are real characters and we wouldn't be without ours.
