    He's very pretty, but he's not a Delaware, maybe a Delaware cross. Delawares should have barring in their neck and tail feathers. Their tail feathers should never have that greenish black your roo has.

    He may be a deleware mix,or just a hatchery deleware. Nothing "show quality." He is BEAUTIFUL though!
