Valley Hatchery is delighted to offer the delightful Delaware chicken, a breed that seamlessly combines functionality with charm. Originating in 1940 through the efforts of George Ellis, the Delaware chicken quickly gained recognition and was admitted to the American Standard of Perfection in 1952. These birds are celebrated for their distinctive appearance, predominantly white with striking black-barred tail and neck feathers.

The Delaware is an ideal breed for those seeking a dual-purpose chicken. Not only do they have a docile nature and require low-maintenance care, but they also excel in egg production. Delaware hens are prolific layers, producing an impressive 180 to 260 large to jumbo-size brown eggs each year. This makes them an excellent choice for both beginners and growing families.

In terms of size, Delaware males typically weigh around 8.5 pounds, while females average about 6.5 pounds. Their manageable size, combined with their gentle temperament, makes them well-suited for homesteads and backyard chicken enthusiasts alike. These chatty birds thrive when they have the space to free-range and explore, showcasing their sociable and inquisitive nature.

Recognized by the American Poultry Association, Delawares are shown in the American Class, highlighting their esteemed status among poultry breeds. With an average lifespan of 5 or more years, they offer a long-term companionship for those who raise them.

Valley Hatchery ensures that purchasing baby chickens is a straightforward and enjoyable experience. When you choose to buy your baby poultry online from us, you’re not just getting chickens; you’re adding a fun, docile, and productive breed to your family that everyone will adore.
