I am helping a local chicken keeper out by hatching some of his Deleware & Java eggs for him. When he dropped them off he said that if I wanted to, I could keep a couple of the chicks. Last night, I didn't think i wanted to because my girls are all already 6 months, but now that I am thinking about it more I do think I would love to have 1 or 2 Deleware Hens, they are very pretty chickens . I do know that they lay large eggs & are a threatened breed, but that's about it. I am incubating only 1doz Java eggs though so I will not keep any of those chicks but might buy some eggs from him later on to hatch. I know NOTHING about Javas, I do know that his are Mottled Javas though.
