    Is there a flowchart type of reference to aid in narrowing down the breed choices of unknown birds?

    ie- shank color, eye color, feather type, comb type, etc

    I think what e original poster wanted was more like a breed selected....like the first part would say leg color....green yellow pink etc...as you picked something the second choice could be like feather or clean....and slowly it would narrow down to tell you what breed you had.

    So things could be sorted by
    Comb
    Foot color
    Ear color
    Feather pattern
    Color
    Feathered or clean feet
    Maybe egg color



    It sounds like a really cool idea. I used my pet chickens breed selector to choose birds but it didn't have this kind of information for identification.

    Thankyou all for the suggestions. What I am trying to do is the reverse order, If I already have an unknown bird and want to ID that bird. A flowchart to narrow down or eliminate some possibilities.
