    I am interested in trying to breed a strain of chicken for my environment and my needs. Does anyone have any good websites with information or suggestions for me. I plan to spend a rather long time planning this out and at the earliest I would start next spring. My goal is an above average large egg layer, with quality meat 7lbs or so, a faster maturing rate, heat and cold tolerance as well as moisture with occasional broodiness and even temperament. A cool egg color would be nice as well haha.

    Sounds like you are trying to produce the prefect chicken.

    The search function on BYC will be your best friend I believe.

    How much MONEY, facilities, and time do you have to spend on this venture to develop a perfect chicken ? [​IMG]
