    There were some recent upgrades to the BYC Database of Chicken Breeds.

    We want your feedback on what the default display should be when you click the "Breeds" link at the top of the page.

    There are pros and cons to both views and we'd love to know which way you prefer and WHY?

    The default is the current way that shows the most recent reviews at the top:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/products/category/chicken-breeds

    The optional way is to show the breeds in alpha order:
    https://www.backyardchickens.com/products/category/chicken-breeds?sort=name


    With the first way, you always see changing and updating info with the most recent info at the top of the page. This makes it easier to discover new breeds, info, reivews, etc. The second way (alpha) is more static and will always show the first alpha breed at the top of the page, but may be easier to find a specific breed.

    So, vote for which one you want and reply here with why you voted the way you did!

    (keep in mind, the alpha sort can be shown from the current default display by selecting "alpha" in the top bar of that page)

    I like the abc order, as I have spent a bit of time trying to find a specific breed before. I couldn't figure out a way to search for that breed (to only search the breed section).

    Yeah, I would have to agree I've done that too. Then it would be easier to find certain breeds! [​IMG]

    I think the breeds should be listed in alphabetical order.

    I voted for Alphabetical. It's the Database of Chicken Breeds . . . not the Database of Chicken Reviews.

    what happened with the old way it was? I cant figure out this new thing, I only get one breed to show up [​IMG] and its no where near the breed I want. I vote for Alphabetical order and back to the 200 plus breeds we had in it. Maybe its just me but I am lost in the new breeds section [​IMG]

    So if you mark the forum read every time you visit the forum (or actually view all the posts) then there is already a built in forum tool to indicate which threads have new info in them.

    At that point, finding the info you came to that specific forum for, should be the priority. IMHO (voted alpha)

    Alphabetical is just how my mind works I guess. Random makes me crazy.
