Brahma Chicken

Scientific name: Gallus gallus domesticus

Country / Place of origin: United States

History: Although the name "Brahma" comes from the river Brahmaputra in India, it is believed the Brahma Chicken was created in the United States from large feather legged birds known as Shanghais (now known as Cochins), which were imported from China to New York in 1846. These birds were crossed with Grey Chittagongs from India which produced the pea comb and beetle brow that are found in the Brahma today.
