I am going to start my own flock in spring of 2013 and am interested in the two breeds, delaware and new hampshire only if they are the non hatchery type everyone on this site keeps talking about. I want fast feathering, and larger than hatchery type weights. Egg laying is a side note. If you are a breeder that breeds either of these two types of birds for these charcteristics plz let me know. Maybe we can come to an arrangment in the spring or sooner.
