Delaware rooster, illustrated by Bugs. I have 2 Delaware hens that are laying now. They are vigorous, beautiful, and the history of the breed is worthy of mention. The Delaware chicken is a good breed for the farm or homestead.

At the end of September I went to the Puyallup Fair, all of my birds did pretty good. Two got best of variety and one got reserve of variety . I also did pretty well at fit and show I answered all of the questions right but I got a red because my bird's feet weren't the cleanest and the judge also said my bird's feathers were all over the place , which really didn't matter to me because she was in moult. Also , it's been a real challenge to keep my breed's foot feathers from getting broken ,shredded, and dirty, but over all I'm happy with how my birds did. Above is me and my friends before we went to fit and show.

I gathered these eggs from my new laying flock yesterday afternoon.The chocolate brown eggs are from my Cuckoo Marans, the blue-green eggs from my Americaunas. Collecting eggs from my chickens never ceases to excite me. Like an Easter egg hunt every day !
