    I'm intrigued with the little bits of info on how you identify true breeds - what is the best resource, website or book, to look this information up?

    A copy of the book, American Standard of Perfection. 2010 is the latest edition. You can get it at the American Poultry Association website I believe.

    It has beautiful artwork. It's well worth owning.
