Pros: Forage well, nice meat bird
Cons: Frostbite on combs
I currently have a flock of Dels. They always seem to be finding their way out of the yard to forage! They are good escape artists and lay wonderful brown eggs.
The breasts on them are much bigger than other DP birds we have used.The feathers are white so the carcass looks clean.
I did have an issue with frostbite on my roos due to the size of the comb, even though it was a mild winter here.My birds seem to stick to their own kind pretty much but have had no problems with the others.
The roo I have is fairly quiet and all the hens are quite laid back.
I like this breed.
