    I have an acquaintence that is seeking large Delawares. The photos of some Delawares in the recent photos section look pretty good - can anyone let me know whose those are or where they came from? Really wanting Standard-bred quality if possible.
    Thanks,

    It is going to be hard to get some pure delawares because it is a rare breed. (As in rare to find a breeder that breeds pure delawares) I had to get eggs off of e-bay and hatch my own to get some. I asked about this before here. I got a pm from someone that said they have eggs. Shortcake1806 is the screen name of the person that sent me the pm. You could pm her.

    Thanks horselover -
    I was hoping that whoever posted those photos recently (a Delaware group and a rooster) would pipe up. They looked better than the average hatchery caliber, but then maybe it was good care I was seeing. PC

    if you want to breed to the standard get in touch with speckledhen or seriousbill but they both have waiting lists

    I bought eggs from shortcake1806 last fall....hatched out some pretty nice chicks...definitely above average on the standard scale. [​IMG] She's been working on her stock for several years now.

    I've posted some pics of my Dels -- if the pic on my BYC page is one that you're thinking of, let me know. I might be able to help.

    Thanks for all the suggestions everyone. There is a group photo of Delawares still up in the "recent photos" section of a rooster and two hens. Anyone want to claim them, or maybe share where they came from?

    Thanks!

    You're looking for seriousbill.
