The Delaware is a relatively new breed created in 1940 in the State of Delaware and is so named after this state. It's a mix of Barred Rock and New Hampshire Red. Ideally was created to have a more meaty bird and still high egg production. Today they are considered an endangered breed. They are a white color with a black tail tip and some black around the neck and streaked through the body feathers. They sport a small single comb that needs to be protected from harsh long winters but they are still relatively cold hardy. They are a friendly docile bird.
