    Hi,
    I bought this girl from an auction the lady told me the breed but I know she didn't say Delaware. I looked her up and Delaware is what I come up with. What do you think? Thank you

    If she had a little more black around her neck I would say light sussex or colombian wyandotte but she does look like a delaware to me.

    She's a Delaware. Regular Colombian colored birds have solid black markings, Dellies are actually barred, which you can see on her.
