    Hi all!
    We are breeding the wonderful Delaware chicken! It is one of the "critical" breeds on the Livestock Conservancy list. We are working towards getting the bird back to what is was intended for - being at adult weight at 12-14 weeks for butchering and being a good brown egg layer. Please ask me any questions! We love our birds! We are located in Northern CA, near Sacramento.

    Welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our flock. I used to have some Delawares, and they are a hardy, docile, dependable breed that lays lots of nice brown eggs. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in breeding your Delawares.
