Great egg production and very friendly. And of course very nice to look at.
Pros - Wonderful and friendly and great egg layer
Cons - Hard to find heritage breeds of delawares
We have had heritage delawares for the past 3 years. It has become one of my favorites due to their faithful layer, sweet disposition, and thrifty on the feed bill!
Pros - Very Docile and trusting
Cons - none
The Delaware is not only a great dual purpose bird, but also makes great pets. One of the most docile standard breed chickens. They actually like to be handled and hand fed, and are very curious as they like to know what you are doing. Great with kids. If you are new to chickens, this breed would be a great starter chicken for you and the family!
