    I've been looking for good books about poultry genetics and breeding, but haven't found much. I want an idea of what to expect when I crossbreed, and instead of asking you the genotype of ten chickens, I want a book that I can use in the future, too. Any recomendations?

    What are breeds/variety of the roosters?

    Same thing for the hens?
