The Brahma is said to originate from China, having been exported to the U.S.A in the 1840s. The original breed was known as the “Shanghai” bird as it was first documented as being brought in from the docks in Shanghai. The bird was originally used for meat but was developed in the States as a laying hen and ornamental breed. In 1852 the bird now known as the Brahma was exported to the U.K. The bantam Brahmas are also an older breed, after a failed attempt in England, the breed came into its own in Germany. They can lay through the winter and produce up to 150 smallish sized light brown eggs a year and are not known for being overly broody, they have a life expectancy of up to 8 years.
