    I don't have any pictures of the tiny girl but just for a size idea she is only as big as my ameraucana hens.

    cyn good luck with your delaware hatch!

    thanks I will ! [​IMG] I am glad there is lots of roosting space so I can add at least three more birds at the end of the sumer and If I decide to keep the chicken tractor I may add another two Black copper marans for laying and keep the bbs ameraucanas in the tractor. I don't think I want to get above 17 birds though.

    Your Dellies are gorgeous! Love that last picture! [​IMG]

    Speckledhen, you'll love having Dellies! They're markings are each a little different so its easy to tell one from another. Mine are so sweet!

    Henry congrats on your new coop! It looks really neat.

    Speckledhen, you'll love having Dellies

    Dont know if you know this, but I have hatched Dellies before....they were HORRIBLE! Their parents, owned by another BYC member, turned aggressive at maturity and were culled. I had two pullets and two cockerels and I got rid of them at about 8 weeks old. They were mean and aggressive to the other birds and to me, even. I had to separate seven Speckled Sussex chicks that were picked and plucked to the point of bleeding. I swore never again...then a nice person and breeder of true heritage Delawares decided I should give them another chance and asked me to do a fertility test for her up and coming new cockerel and ladies. Honestly, I hesitated after my experience with them, but she convinced me. I'd post pics of the parents of my new future Dellie chicks, but those are her pictures and I won't do that without permission from her. Maybe she'll post them soon.​
