The Delaware was developed with one goal: to overthrow every other table bird known to man. Once known as the “King of the table birds,” for a period of time it did just that. In fact, in its heyday, this magnificent breed conquered not only the meat markets of its day, but established such a reputation for producing “fine market quality” birds that its influence continues today. While the region has, like most places, moved on to industrial breeds, it is still the leading producer of poultry in its country. Now that’s a game-changer.
