    I have 3 purebred Dellie ladies who are laying beautifully. I have 2 handsome Dellie Cockerels, who are their sons and the Delaware roos that I had before.

    Should I try to find a nice Delaware roo? Or should I get some eggs and hopefully hatch out some nice girls for these boys (they're 6 months old)?

    If anyone has a solution (like a nice Delaware roo) let me know also. [​IMG] Or has nice Delaware eggs?

    You might try posting a thread in Chickens for BST something to the effect of you would like to swap a couple of nice Dellie roos for one of a different line to outcross your flock on. [​IMG]

    Actually I was wondering which would be the better way to go. Then see about finding what I need to accomplish the better way.

    The 3 hens have been free ranging and if put with a new roo of their own would need their own house.
