    Hello I'm brand new here as of a few minutes ago. I currently have a small flock of Delaware chickens. 2 roosters and 4 hens. Neighborhood dogs killed my other4 hens and we ate two roosters. That being said we would like to add to our flock. Does anyone know of a reasonably priced Delaware breeder near Ky where we live?

    Welcome to BYC
    Are you looking for exhibition lines or production lines? "Reasonably priced" can mean different things to different people - can you share with us about what you want to spend, per bird? Are you wanting to start with day-olds or are you looking for started or even point of lay birds?

    We are just looking for egg and meat chickens. We would like day olds to raise ourselves and $3-5 a piece would be the most I'd like to spend per bird. All hens would be the upper limit.
