    Hi,
    Anyone have an idea what a Brahma/ Delaware cross would look like? Or grow like?
    Thanks

    The cockerels will be barred, the pullets black.

    Thank you. Sounds like what is called "sex link"? Big is good :) I will try some regular broilers like the Cornish x, but I have read the Delaware and Brahma meat is good.

    I'm sure they would be big and tasty, but probably very slow growers. If eating is your goal, you might consider caponizing the cockerels.
