Need the FACTS on Chicken BREEDS

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

We have to choose between 9 different breeds of chickens from 4-H and I am trying to find a website/book/encyclopedia or something that will provide information such as...

       AVERAGE AGE WHEN THEY START LAYING

       ANNUAL EGG PRODUCTION

       SIZE OF EGG

       HEAT/COLD TOLERANCE

       SOCIAL SKILLS

       BRIEF DESCRIPTION

 

any recommendations...please help!

Not sure, but have you checked out the breeds forum? If you can't find a comparative analysis of breeds, then maybe make your own based on the info there?

 

All the best

What about this for starters?
