Lemon Brahma Chickens

 
The Lemon Chiffon Brahma chickens are my absolute favorite. I wanted this variety for years before I was able to get them. 

The Lemon color is rare in the U.S. but is a popular variety overseas. Commonly referred to as “Lemon Pyle Brahma” or “Lemon Splash Brahma” the hens have a buttery, creamy, vanilla-like overcoat plumage with white cape, tail and bloomers. The roosters are where the lemon coloring comes in and they are gorgeous.

I’m working on specific traits, including the vibrant yellow on the males and creamy color in the females as well as other physical features. Sometimes the Lemon Pyle variety has a more orange color, this is not what I want in my Lemon Chiffon Brahma flock. Please note, these are not the Palomino Brahma variety which are also rare and beautiful but more common in the U.S. than the Lemon Pyle Brahma.

The Lemon Chiffon Brahma are just as friendly and fabulous as the other color varieties of Brahma chickens.

My flock originates from two lines in Germany and since they are a splash color my birds range from light phase, to the “happy medium” phase I prefer and consider ideal (see below).

My lines take forever to feather out and grow, especially the males – who take up to two years to see them in their full glory. And compared to other breeds they like to be very clean.

It’s difficult to photograph this color variety, the light has to be just right or they tend to appear white (see below).

Please note: I do NOT sell hatching eggs or young chicks at this time.  I have too much variation currently and am still building my flock. I will sell “ideal” pullets for $200 each, depending upon availability, to those on my waitlist. I do not ship. They are too valuable to risk transit. There is a $50, non refundable deposit to hold each baby. I’m happy to send pictures of babies as they grow. Prior to pick up babies are given an herbal wormer to assist with their transition and ward off parasite overload as a result of relocation stress. 

The Lemon Brahma are not the best layers so these are far from an egg production line you find in hatcheries. This is also why I will not sell hatching eggs. The girls go broody A LOT. They are a labor of love and I consider them beloved pets. If you’re interested in being on the waitlist and you understand their price, deposit and that I do not ship please contact me via the form towards the top of this page.

I don’t know of other breeders of this variety in the US but if you’re a US breeder (or know of any) of this variety please contact me, I’d love to connect and compare notes!
