    Our children want to start breeding chickens. We have a set of Rose combs plus a hen, a set of silkies & a daughter from the mom only, and a set of barred Cochins.

    We are absolutely clueless on how to breed these and still have genetic diversity.

    So. Are there any books out there that are easy to understand for myself and children? Or a website with free info?
