Buff Brahma chickens are calm, friendly birds that make good pets or exhibition
fowl. Males are calm and 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. They 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
There are three Brahma varieties: light, dark, and buff. The light
Brahma has a base color of white, with black hackles edged in white and a
black tail. The cocks saddle feathers in a light Brahma are striped with black. The dark Brahma has the most notable difference between cock and hen. The hen has a dark gray and black penciled coloration with the same hackle as the light whereas the cock has black and white hackles and saddle feathers, and a black base and tail. Wings of a dark Brahma are white-shouldered and the primary feathers are edged with white. Buff Brahmas have the same pattern of black as
light Brahmas, except with a golden buff base color instead of white.
