I am building a new flock after a 15 year hiatus. Dual purpose, already started cream legbars and bielefelders incubating. Still have room for one more dual purpose variety and assorted hens for nice colored eggs. For the last dual purpose I am considering Bresse vs US heritage, particularly Delaware’s. The Bresse are a tempting choice but they appear to have a shallow gene pool. Delaware’s sound great in theory but I don,t know of sources that have flocks with really good consistent genetics. I am only finding hatchery stock which might not have the meat side of the intended Delaware standard covered. I am still open to other varieties as long as they have white or light colored feathers. Any input, particularly first hand experience with Bresse or Delaware’s would be highly appreciated.
