Anyone raise Delawares for meat birds? I'm thinking about getting some, hoping the hens will go broody, raise more and free me of having to buy chicks every spring. I was reading up on rare breeds and decided on them. I like the Delawares, they were originally bred as meat birds, but are now considered rare. From what I've read, they sound like a good dual purpose bird too. Along with the meat, I would get eggs too. Sounds like a win win to me. If you have Delawares, are the hens broody? Do the birds make enough meat to make it worthwhile raising them?
