    Welcome to BYC. I'm glad you decided to join our flock. Have you checked out the Getting Started Raising Chickens section of our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/a/getting-started-raising-chickens. There are some good charts that you can use to reference the different breeds at http://albc-usa.etapwss.com/images/uploads/docs/pickachicken.pdf, 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 https://www.mcmurrayhatchery.com/chick_selector.html to help you determine which breeds are best for you. Just be sure and click on "show more characteristics."Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Good luck in getting your flock.

    That is the best approach to having chickens (or anything else), BYC forums cover every question you can think of, and many you didn't know you had. We are here 24/7. Glad you joined the flock.
