    We're hoping to start breeding and showing chicken soon, and we were wondering if there is a good place to find out the breed standards of chickens? We've looked, and looked, but can't find anything. Thanks in advance! (p.s. if this is in the wrong forum, sorry. :))

    I think that you should get the American Poultry Association Standard Of Perfection. Its a book that contains the standards for every recognized breed of chicken. If you show chickens or breed them, you should really have the Standard.
