Hi, I have a trio of Delawares, or at least I believe them to be. Here where I live (São Paulo state) they´re referred to as Canadense (Canadians). I bought them at a week old from a bird dealer who gets a number of chicks in each week, various breeds, so I reckon these must be hatchery. I´d like opinions on whether they look reasonable as Dellies or not. I know two´re quite dark, were quite smutty as chicks, but I see they do have good legs and they´re a good size. They´ve not started laying yet, and the roo has just started to crow this past week. If you think they´re not real Dellies I´ll look somewhere else for a breeder, but I´ll still keep these as they´re lovely. Thanks for any opinions.
