    Hi, I have never seen or owned any Delawares but the photo I have of them in the Cackle cataloge shows them with some black on the tail, neck and small amount on the wing. Did you have your other Dels from day olds? Maybe what you are seeing is just a stage of development. You should post a photo for those who are more experienced to see. Good luck blueseal, to you and your new chicks

    The delaware's should always have a little black on their tail and wings, they get it from the Barred rock they are crossed with.
