Delaware ChickenThe Delaware Chicken is a dual purpose chicken that produces good meat and eggs. In 1940, George Ellis oringinally produced this chicken calling it the Indian River Chicken. This almost entirely white bird was once one of the most popular broiler chickens in its area. Starting in the late 1950's, the Cornish Rock cross came to dominate the industry.

Delaware Chickens are noted for their rapid growth and fast feathering of the chicks. The birds are calm, friendly and fast growing. Cocks grow to 8 pounds and hen to 6 pounds.
