Delaware

$2.55$3.85

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 cold hardy breed that makes a great dual-purpose bird which matures early.  The males mature quickly and the females make great egg layers.  Females are good setter and tend to go broody and make great mothers.  The Delaware breed does well in free range environments and fit well in backyard flocks.  They are calm and docile birds making them a great addition to any flock.  The Delaware is a beautiful mostly white bird, with black and white tail and neck feathers.  Delaware chickens have a single comb, clean legs and yellow skin.  This dual-purpose breed features excellent egg production of nice large to jumbo brown eggs and has superior meat characteristics.
