An Excellent Dual Purpose Heritage Breed

We have raised this set of Delawares for both meat and egg production. Our ranch focuses on heritage breeds, specifically ones that are on the ALBC Conservation Priority List. We have found that even though this breed takes longer to mature compared to commercial meat birds (Cornish Crosses), the meat is better and the animals are healthier. We have noticed that the temperament of this breed is relatively calm and our rooster is nice enough to be picked up. We plan to breed these chickens and would love to help keep this heritage breed in existence!
