As much as we love our Brahmas, it's fun to add some variety. We keep a small number of Ameraucana, Legbar, Olive Egger, Easter Egger, and Marans hens in with our Brahma flocks for the variety of egg colors. We have found they make for some very fun crosses! Feathered legs, muffs, beards, crests, you name it, these chicks could have it. Any chicks hatched from our Ameraucana and Legbar hens are guaranteed to lay some shade of green, potentially light enough to appear more blue. Chicks hatched from our other hens will lay varying shades of green and brown. These Brahma crosses tend to inherit a lot of the Brahma size, which means the cockerels can make decent meat birds if desired.
