Hello, I was just wondering if there are still any pure flocks of Blue Hens of Delaware. I am not interested in any at this time, just curious

Hallock Dupont donated several pairs of pure ones the birds to the University of DE, and the professor there crossed them with Andaulsion's so they would be bluer, and those are the only one's I've ever seen that people are breeding nowadays (the pure one's have gold on their backs).

Anyway, just curious if any of the original ones exist anymore

Thanks, MW
