I know that Delawares sometimes get a bad rap around here, because they're pecky (and I have certainly piled on) BUT I have to say: they are wonderful layers. They lay almost every single day, big, shiny, pinkish brown eggs, with many double-yolkers. They're such petite looking birds so it's surprising to see those big old eggs. I have gone from saying I would never get Delawares again, to thinking they're great! Anyone else have this experience?
