On September 1, 2014 we went through all of our pullets and chose our very best. We have a total of 7 that will be our main breeding hens. These are the closest to the Heritage Delaware breed. We also have a #2 pen with birds that are close, but not quite as good as the first pen. The rest of the girls are in pen #3 and from them we get our eggs for eating and selling. We are very proud of the quality of birds we are starting with!
