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 the Standard of Perfection (SOP) but also breed for specific traits, including the vibrant yellow on the males and creamy color in the females. Sometimes the Lemon Pyle variety has a more orange color, this is not what I breed in my Lemon Chiffon Brahma flock. 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. I haven’t found mine to be the best foragers or layers but they are great lap birds and wonderful with kids. Even my roosters are big teddy bears.
My flock originates from Germany and, fortunately, do not have vulture hocks, a disqualifying trait in the U.S. I’m working toward the Standard of Perfection (SOP) set forth by the American Poultry Association.
I don’t sell hatching eggs or chicks currently but will sell pullets, depending upon availability, once the flock better is established.
