Super Friendly - Moi,

This breed is absolutely adorable and super friendly. I have found my Delawares to be by far the most playful and interesting among a group of Delawares and New Hampshire Reds.


Excellent Bird - Kathie,

I have kept Delaware hens for 2 years now and cannot find any negative about them. They lay very well and consistently, they enjoy human interaction, are friendly and not aggressive. They are large heavy birds, heat or cold do not seem to bother them and are beautiful to look at. You can't go wrong with these great birds.


Most Excellent Chicken - Joe,

We have have owned pure Delawares for several years. I am constantly amazed at the egg productivity of this breed. I have not found them to be prone to broodiness and with reasonable care find the hens lay rate excellent, near 90% or better. They tend to decline slightly after about 2.5 years and as older hens. The eggs are extra large and they are a mild mannered chicken, very hardy from hatching right on through maturity. With the strain I have I occasionally get an off colored (red) chick. They are excellent foragers.
