What does an Indian River look like?

I saw a hybrid on cackle hatcherys site called an indian river. It said it was a cross between a delaware rooster and a new hampshire hen. What do these birds look like?

Re: What does an Indian River look like?

i don't get it the way i read it Indian river chickens are Delawares

Delawares, originally called "Indian Rivers," were developed by George Ellis of Delaware in 1940 and were used for the production of broilers. The breed originated from crosses of Barred Plymouth Rock roosters and New Hampshire hens.


thinken   shrug   maybe im reading it wrong.    doh    greet

same thing in this link Delawares are Indian rivers so i guess the pics of a Delaware would be correct  shrug or maybe im losing it  idk.    http://www.albc-usa.org/cpl/delaware.html

maybe this will help 

Delaware males may be mated to New Hampshire or Rhode Island Red females and produce chicks of the Delaware color pattern. Delaware females mated to New Hampshire or Rhode Island Red males produced sex-linked offspring; the males having the Delaware color pattern and the females having the solid red color of the sires. Chicks from this second cross can even be sexed by their down color when hatched.

jmho if ya cross a Delaware with a new hamp- ur only doubling the new hamp- blood in the breed shrug

Re: What does an Indian River look like?

Looks like you are both right big_smile

Cackle IS selling something and calling it an Indian River, but that's wrong.  It is just a mutt bird.

With JJ's links, it's obvious that Indian River is actually a name for Delawares.  What Cackle is selling is really an Indian River (delaware) crossed with a New Hamp.. a mutt bird.

  I'm not sure what the benefits of that cross are, but I guess I'm disturbed that they didn't do their research shrug

  Are you looking for a specific type of bird?  I bet someone here could recommend something!
