    I don't think Delawares have barring in the tail feathers. They look like mixed breed chickens.

    Came from a Hatchery, I think. Where I got the birds from there was a order form but six more birds than listed. If it helps..

    I googled Delawares and I am wrong, they do have barred tail feathers. Looks like you do have Delawares.

    I would lean toward Delaware. Mine do have the black on their tail feathers and are not mixed. This hen is about a year old as an example.

    I'd say the cockerel is definitely a hatchery Delaware, the pullet looks like one as well.
