    I've got one Delaware coming in the next day or so from Meyer Hatchery in Polk, OH. You only have to order 3 chickens at a time. I'm SOOOO excited... these are my first!! I also have 1 each coming of a Barred Rock, Partridge Rock, White Rock, Welsummer and an Easter Egger! Meyerhatchery.com (888) 568-9755 Good luck with your search

    You should join in on the Delaware threads like this one: https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=249618&p=1075

    Some
    hatcheries have them, however, for better quality Dels more like they should be, a breeder would be your best bet. Hatcheries almost ruined the breed by crossing in Columbian Plymouth Rocks and not culling for type when numbers dwindled. kathyinmo has some nice ones.

    delawareclub.com listed Meyer hatchery as one of the places to look so maybe their line of Delawares isn't too bad??

    Yes, Rebel Rooster has some, forgot him. Privett's Dels are better generally than most other hatcheries, it seems.
