Our Delaware pullets will be 8-12 weeks old upon shipment. Our line of Delaware usually begin to lay between 20-22 weeks of age. Allowing your pullets time to adjust and become accustomed to their new home will help keep them on track with their laying cycle. Please see our Delaware Breed Page for more information on this breed.
