Delawares are a hardy breed that excel in free range applications. They were used primarily as broilers before the Jumbo Cornish Cross began dominating the meat market in the mid 1950's. However, the females are also modest producers of Large to Jumbo sized brown eggs so these chickens will make great dual purpose chickens. The feathers have an all white quill and shaft so the carcass will appear clean, even though the chicken will have darker barred feather patterns.
The Delaware has bright red wattles and a single red comb, although the color will fade in laying hens. The hens can go broody and will raise their chicks. Typically the roosters weigh around 8.5 pounds and the males 6.5 pounds.
The breeder flock for these chicks have been fed a non-GMO diet.
Pick the hatch date, whether you want vaccinations or not (not available on every breed), then add the chicks to your cart. Checkout using PayPal or any major credit card. We have a minimum order of 15 chicks from April 1 - October 31 and 25 chicks from November 1 to March 31. We put more chicks in a box during colder weather to keep them warm during shipping.
Once the order is complete we receive your order and schedule it for your preferred hatch date. If we can’t fit it in our schedule for whatever reason on the date you selected, we’ll let you know.
Once the order has shipped we will mark your order complete and attach the tracking # to your order. You should get an email with confirming the order is complete.
The chicks typically take 1 - 2 days after they have hatched to reach your local post office. The post office should call you when the chicks arrive.
Wait for the call from your local post office. Typically USPS will ship the chicks to the post office associated with your zip code but occasionally they may require you to pick the chicks up at a main hub - especially if the delivery is running behind schedule.
Pick up your chicks at your local post office.
Let us know if you have any issues with your order within 48 hours after the arrival of your chicks.
