    I found an ad online listed for 6 Delaware hens. There's only one image depicting the birds for sale so could anyone confirm that the hens are in fact Delawares?

    That's the only photo avaliable from the seller so if I can get into contact with them then I'll try and get a better picture.

    It could be, but there looks to be a lot of dark/smut in the wrong places. I'm also not sure on gender---the comb looks red for the size of the bird. A better pic and knowing age would help confirm.

    The ad reads: "hens, will be 1-year-old in September."

    So hens, if they're truthful.
