THE LIGHT BRAHMA is the largest of these breeds. The plumage of the male is pure white excepting the hackle, tail and flights which are black and white, striped with black. The cocks will weigh about 12 pounds, the hens pounds. They are a very hardy breed and fair layers, producing eggs of a rich brown color, weighing about seven to the pound. The dark Brahmas are much less popular and are about a pound lighter.
