    If you're in 4H like me... use this to learn more about your chicken breeds. That way when the judges ask you questions about your chicken's breed, you know!!! And for finding the information I recommend either the APA (american poultry association) Standard of Perfection book. OR my fav website... backyardchickens.com!!!
