Delaware-chickens-BERANGER

Delawares were at one time the quintessential dual-purpose breed—fast-growing to good carcass size and efficient layers of large brown eggs. They’ve been sadly neglected by the big commercial hatcheries, however. If you’re interested in raising Delawares, seek out better-bred stock from someone practicing serious improvement breeding.
