Unlike other Brahmas, the color pattern of the Dark Brahma depends on the sex of the bird. Roosters are typically black and silver while hens sport a beautiful silver-penciled plumage. Like all Brahmas, Dark Brahmas have feathered shanks and toes. These brown egg layers have a very calm temperament making them a popular choice for pets.
