If you want a chicken that commands the eye, Blue Partridge Brahma will definitely fit the bill. Huge and upright they put off a look of regal reign.  The eagle like gaze is a complete facade as, we have found them to be extremely calm and personable.  The chicks are easily tamed making them a wonderful addition to the family.  

Large and stately, Brahmas fit the description well as a dual-purpose breed. The hens can also are productive layers of large tinted eggs. Few breeds have surpassed brahmas in their dramatic visual appeal.  This line of rare european Blue Partridge Brahmas are from Greenfire Farms.  They are tight feathered with a plethora of feathering on their legs and with their small combs are well suited for colder weather. 

The development of the Brahma as a breed went through a number of stages in America. The original brahmas were extremely large with roosters weighing as much as 14 lbs. Over time a smaller bird was developed –the accepted standard now calls for an 11 lb. rooster—and the feathering on the bird went from fluffy to tight. Today there are three varieties of the Brahma accepted in the breed standard by the American Poultry association: the light, dark, and buff.

How the Andalusian Blue Gene works For Black, Blue, and Splash (BBS)

When breeding with the andalusian blue gene, one mating can give you 3 colors of chicks.

The gene for blue is a WYSIWYG gene.   The visible plumage color is the color of the genetics.  There is no need to do test matings to find out if it is present. The gene is a dominate blue, effecting black only and little effect on red. The blue gene not present is a black bird, one blue gene will change a black bird to blue where 2 blue genes will change black to a whitish bird with splashes of black/blue. If the bird has red in the plumage, the splash color will be shades of black, white and red.

➢ Gold x Gold = 100% Gold

➢ Gold x Blue = 50% Gold and 50% Blue 

➢ Gold x Splash = 100% Blue 

➢ Blue x Blue = 25% Gold, 50% Blue  and 25% Splash

➢ Blue x Splash  = 50% Blue and 50% Splash

➢ Splash x Splash  = 100% Splash

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY


It is always a joy to hear from folks that are loving on their birds they received from CHP!

Just wanted to let you know that they arrived this morning and are all doing great. They seemed to have gone through the trip with no ill effects. We had a suprise snow storm last night that wasn't in the forecast and now they are calling for 4-8" here tonight so I was a bit nervous when I got up this morning, but they were there when the post office opened :) Thank you for the extra two, it was a great surprise. I have attached two pics, one of the group in the brooder in the house and one of our daughter with a chick. We absolutely love them! Thanks again.

Yahoo. I picked the babies up at the post office about 7:30 this morning and all seem well. One is acting a bit off but I'm thinking he/she is just exhausted. They settled right into brooder, had a drink and napping off and on. You sent 2 extra? Hey Jorden is at school and doesn't know they were coming today so she will be climbing in the brooder about 3:30 and have all eight named by 4. LOL Thanks Tisha !!
