    What are the smallest breed of (standard size) chicken that can be found at hatcheries?


    (and please include pics if you want too of your hatchery birds)

    And another question...

    Where are the threads where people show pics of their hatchery birds? I saw some, but cant find them again.

    Hey, I saw your post was unanswered. I don't know the answer, but if you look at the top right of the page, there's a space to do a search. You can type in small breeds or maybe hatchery pictures. All of the related posts will show up! That's how I've found stuff on here. Thank goodness for it.
