Delaware Chickens

The Delaware Chicken is relatively new American Breed developed in the 1940s by George Ellis in Delaware. The Delaware Chicken was developed by crossing the New Hampshire Red with a Barred Plymouth Rock successfully attempting to maintain the excellent egg production of both breeds while increasing the meat value.

Successfully creating an excellent dual purpose meat breed, the Delaware Chicken was a short lived leader in the broiler production industry until the creation of the Cornish Rock Cross that dominates the industry today. The Delaware Chicken is still an ideal choice for a back yard bird with good meat quality and quantity, and excellent production of large brown eggs.

One reason the Delaware Chicken breed is such a valued meat bird is because its offspring are predominately white feathered; and white feathers do not leave spots on the carcass when plucked. Delaware Roosters can be mated with New Hampshire Red Hens and Rhode Island Red Hens to produce chicks with the white Delaware color pattern.

Delaware Chickens are a great choice for a backyard or barnyard chicken breed that will perform well in the cold and is docile in nature. This breed will produce excellent numbers of large brown eggs and are relatively easy to maintain. Truly an ideal standard breed.
