Blue Hen Chicken State Bird. The history of Delaware's state bird starts during the Revolutionary War, when a company of soldiers from Delaware known for their courage acquired the nickname of "The Blue Hen's Chickens". Over the years the "Blue Hen" became a popular symbol. Today, the University of Delaware athletic teams are nicknamed "the fightin' Blue Hens" and the university maintains a flock of the birds.
