    I'm trying to find a good book about different breeds of chickens / poultry and their breed standards. So far, everything that I've found is more towards caring about birds; I only want breeds. I can find a million books like this for dogs, cats, horses, fish -- no chickens!! Can anyone help?

    I received this one a few years ago as a present. I really like it and refer to it often, it may be what your looking for. Tractor Supply carries it.

    Storeys Illustrated Guide to Poultry Breeds.

    You need The Standard of Perfection Book. It list all the different breeds and their classifications.
