    Are there any chicken breed books that show pictures of the chicks as well as the adults?

    Hmm, I don't know of a book, but www. feathersite.com shows about every breed known to man plus the breeds as chicks on a separate webpage.

    If you go to Barnes and Noble's website, and do a search on chicken breeds under subject for books, they have several books I've never seen before, like "Field Guide to Chickens", but I don't know if it has chick pictures as well as the 61 breeds it pictures or not.

    When I was at the feed store with Denise looking at chicks they had a Murry McMurry catalouge that had pictures of breeds when they are chicks, it was very helpful. Try ordering a Murry McMurry catalouge.
