Pasture egg production: Ameraucanas versus Delawares

Trying to decide between which breed to raise for egg production on your farm can be difficult if there is not much information about the productivity of each breed.  This also becomes a problem if you are attempting to create a business plan.  Information about the productivity of Delaware hens and Ameraucana hens in a pastured management system will be discussed.  The length of time it takes to reach egg-laying maturity, feed consumed, body weights, egg sizes and numbers, as well as cost of egg production will be discussed for chickens raised on pasture in the Mid-Atlantic.
