    I once saw a chart linked up on BYC that was very nice, I thought it was a BYC chart, but it could have been a link to an outside site. Now that I really want to reference it, I can't find it anywhere!

    It had a picture and breed name of each chicken down one side, then next to each it listed what color and size eggs they laid, I believe also the size of the chicken, the purpose of the breed,etc.

    Anyone know what I am talking about and where I can find it?

    Thanks!

    Looks like a different chart than the one I saw before, but same idea. Thank you!

    I did look at the BYC chart, but I was having trouble finding the information I was looking for and thought the chart format made it easier to compare.

    I think you're talking about the old BYC chart before the revamp (pre February) - It simply listed chicken breeds alphabetically and with little info down the lines like egg size, temperament, broodiness, heat/cold tolerance, etc. and a little picture for each one.

    The chart is now different in that it has ratings, reviews, and doesn't show the breed info unless you click the breed or select from the side to narrow down the list.

    I think so, too. The old list made it easy to compare, and get the basic details at a glace. I wish we had both, they are usefull in different ways. :)
