He takes good care of all of his lady friends. Delaware’s make excellent broiler chickens with the males weighing in at 8.5labs and the females at 6.5lbs.  This breed of chickens can adapt to confinement or free range and are very hardy. They lay large, rich brown eggs making them a great dual purpose homestead chicken.

We plan on having Delaware chicks available in the Spring! We will keep you all updated when they hatch!!
