    I raise Delaware chickens and am looking for the Blue Hen of Delaware. Does anyone know where I can find some? Willing to pay. Thank you!

    The University of Delaware School of Agriculture is supposed to have Delaware Blues.

    That might be because: "The Blue Hen of Delaware is a variety of chicken that was adopted on April 14, 1939, as the state bird of Delaware. The University of Delaware mascot, known as YoUDee, is also modeled after the bird."
