    My DH made a "Delaware Tree" today while I was trying to get pics of two particular cockerels. These may qualify as friendly, don't you think? They are 8 weeks old.

    Those vicious Delawares were just just sizing him up for biting the right spot to take him down!

    Oh, yeah, bunch of pirahna, right? [​IMG] Believe me, we know pirahna! The first bunch I have were awful, so I pretty much swore off the breed, but these have redeemed themselves in my eyes.

    Great pics Cyn!

    Our Delaware is our friendliest girl. She always is right next to me pecking at my pant-leg for some attention.

    This bunch is coming along nicely. The markings will clear up and evolve as they get closer to maturity and I'll be able to decide which cockerel to keep. I'm keeping all five pullets to add my Kira to for a half doz hens and one rooster in the end.
