Brahma hen (egg laying: 3/wk; egg color: brown; egg size: medium). Brahmas are gentle giants with feathered legs and feet and profuse, fluffy feathering. Originally from India, these birds were bred for meat production, though the hens lay relatively decently and are great setters and mothers. This fancy breed of chicken makes a great pet for its quiet and tame nature and are tolerant to the cold.
