The next time you visit Sheep Pasture, we hope you find our lovely ladies, the Buff Brahmas, and say hello. They will likely run to the fence to greet you and beg for a snack from our chicken feeders.
If you are interested in getting Brahmas of your own, one source is Murray McMurray Hatchery, though there are many commercial producers. As always, we recommend researching the quality of the breeder facility, the care required for keeping chickens in New England, your local laws and regulations for keeping poultry, and the many different breeds available before purchasing any birds.
