Anyone able to recommend a good basic chicken genetics book?
Thanks so much!
The Mating & Breeding of Poultry. It's green & was first published in 1920.
Genetics of Chicken Colours- The Basics. See chickencolours.com for a preview, click on book, then on left hand table.
Amazon has several books on chicken genetics and breeding.

It looks to be very good, although I haven't read through it.

HI AGAIN! I have just realised that the book Chicken Daddy recommended is by the same author as mine.
I also bought the book from Grant Brerenton and it is very easy to understand. I bought directly from him and got it in two weeks.
