    By the book The Mating and Breeding of Poultry by Lamon. You can procure it cheap in paperback. It will deal with your questions in detail.

    Here ya go,
    1920 and 1922 editions are available free online to read. The more modern editions are just reprints of the first two.
    No need to buy the more modern ones.
