    P.S. If you are wanting information on specific chicken breeds, there are some good charts at http://www.livestockconservancy.org/index.php/directory?gclid=CJTfse-J878CFQinaQod3EsAeA, http://www.mypetchicken.com/chicken-breeds/breed-list.aspx, and http://www.sagehenfarmlodi.com/chooks/chooks.html. Also Murray McMurray has an excellent chick selector tool at http://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/chick_selector.html to help you select the best breed for you. Just be sure and click on "show more characteristics."

    Do you have a specific breed in mind? Do you want to breed for show or just to have chicks to sell?
