Valley Hatchery invites you to discover the delightful Delaware Started Pullets, a dual-purpose chicken breed renowned for laying jumbo-sized eggs. Despite being relatively new to the poultry scene, Delawares have quickly become a favorite in many families, thanks to their docile nature and easy-going care requirements. These chickens are especially well-suited for beginners or those with young families, offering a gentle introduction to poultry keeping.

Delawares are not just about their friendly demeanor; they’re also prolific layers, with each hen producing 180 to 260 large to jumbo-sized brown eggs annually. They’re the perfect blend of productivity and personality. The males typically weigh around 8.5 pounds, while the females average about 6.5 pounds. Recognized by the American Poultry Association (APA) and shown in the American Class, Delawares are known for their longevity, often living 5 years or more with proper care.

These chatty chickens thrive when they have the freedom to roam and explore, making them ideal for free-range environments. Whether you’re establishing a homestead or seeking easy-going backyard chickens, the Delaware breed is a fantastic choice that promises to bring joy and utility to your flock.

At Valley Hatchery, our Started Pullets, aged 15-20 weeks and vaccinated against Marek’s Disease, are ready for their new homes. For those interested in raising these charming birds from a younger age, we also offer Delaware chicks for sale. Choose our Delaware Started Pullets for a fun, family-friendly addition to your backyard adventure.
