Delawares were first developed by crossing Barred Plymouth Rocks with New Hampshire Reds as an early broiler cross. Today, the breed is mostly white with some black neck and tail feathers, and are prized for their high egg productivity and suitability as a dual-purpose addition to a homestead flock.
