This breed was developed in the state of Delaware from an original Barred Rock and New Hampshire cross. The Delaware is considered a heavy breed which lays a nice brown egg. Males are a medium-large size and large enough (approximately six pounds at maturity) to butcher for meat and the hens will make a nice "stewing" dish when they are done laying. The feathering on these beautiful birds is almost all white but shows a slight indication of barring on the neck and tail. Delawares are nice quiet birds when well tended to. The Females will lay early, about 5 months of age.
