    Welcome to BYC! I would suggest stopping by The Learning Center https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center as a great way to start gaining knowledge about all things poultry-keeping. Beyond that, perhaps if you shared a bit more about what it is you are considering we would be better able to offer advice, information, etc.

    Here is the breed section lots of info on different breeds. https://www.backyardchickens.com/products/category/chicken-breeds
    It points out if they are good for laying, meat birds or a more fancy or show breed. I started out with red sex link hens that were excellent egg layers, quiet and easy to keep. They were a great starter bird.

    Yorkshire Coop gave you a good link on poultry breeds. For more information and pictures of many poultry breeds, I would also recommend checking out Feathersite.com: FeatherSite - The Poultry Page
