    No, I didn't but I did get some lovely Delaware eggs from Speckledhen and am now selling hatching eggs. I've been pleased with how my breeder stock looks!

    I didn't mean to turn this into an advertisement. Just sharing. Best of wishes with your looking. Nancy

    I too want to hear if anyone has expierence with Whitmore farms and their Delawares.
    What growth rate do you get and under what conditions? Do they grow out very uniform? What rate of lay can one expect? How calm or quiet are they? Do they forage well? Have they gone broody ever? Did anyone get hatching eggs? Has anyone used these hens in a sexlink cross? Do you raise them for meat, eggs, or both. Have you got delawares from anywhere else? How did your's put meat on? (Please share about wings, legs, thighs, and breasts.) Was there a difference in the meat's texture or flavor?

    Thanks
