The Delaware chicken originated in the USA. It  is a rare chicken breed suited for meat production but also lays reasonably well. It has plumage of a unique pattern, and is accepted as a high quality breed.

With males weighing 8.5 pounds and hens 6.5 pounds, the Delaware chicken is a medium sized breed. They have rather large, bright red colored single combs Delaware chickens appear in a single color type: a white body and breast, with light black barring on the ends of the hackle, wings and tails. It is similar to the light color seen in some breeds, but has barring in the dark portions, rather than pure black. Also of note is that all feathers have a white quill and shaft, which, combined with yellow skin, makes for a cleaner appearing carcass.

Delawares are hardy birds that mature quickly. Hens are good egg layers of large to jumbo brown eggs and will go broody. Unlike the most common commercial meat birds in use today, the Delaware does well in free range operations. In temperament, it is a calm and friendly chicken breed.
