Delaware

$2.35$5.25

Delaware Chickens were originally developed in the state of Delaware in the 1940’s, by crossing Barred Plymouth Rocks and New Hampshire Chickens.  In the days before the Cornish-Rock Cross, they were the most popular broiler birds and are still a top pick for those looking for a sustainable heritage breed flock.

Delaware Chickens are a hardy breed that makes a great dual-purpose bird which matures early.  The males mature quickly and the hens make great egg layers.  The Delaware breed does well in free range environments and fit well in backyard flocks.  They are calm and docile.   The Delawares are a beautiful mostly white bird, with black and white tail and neck feathers.  This dual-purpose breed features excellent egg production of nice large brown eggs and has superior meat characteristics.
