The Delaware is a relatively new breed of chicken, having only been developed in 1940. They're a cross btwn New Hampshire Reds & Barred Plymouth Rocks w/the goal of maintaing prolific egg production of these two breeds but increased meat value. They're a calm white breed with black feathers around the neck and the tip of the tail. They perform well in the cold and will fare even better if their combs are protected from frostbite w/the help of some petroleum jelly.

Turkens - Naked Necks Tthe Turken is all chicken but unique because of its turkey-like bare neck.

We have purposely kept our Turken flocks mixed in color for a more colorful and distinctive offspring.

Brahmas -My favorite chickens! We have ordered them from Murray McMurray. They are large, heavy birds and lay brown eggs - very sweet personalities, very friendly, and several were quite broody. More 'meat' than egg hens, but still laid well.
