Delaware Breed History

The Delaware chicken is a relative newcomer to the chicken world and made their first appearance in the 1940s. They are actually the result of an offshoot of the New Hampshire and Plymouth Rock breed improvement program that was taking place

Delaware, New Hampshire, Plymouth Rock, Wyandotte, Holland and Orpington are some of the old-fashioned breeds that can be used for both meat and egg production. The chicks take three to four months to reach a good size, and can be butchered as late as 8 months old. After that, they tend to get tough.
