    I used to click on the breeds link and get a list of breeds ranked from #1 down. You could click on a breed and get all sorts of information. Now when I click on it I get a list that is missing lots of breeds such as leghorn and buff or ping tonight.

    Am I just missing something here? Thanks.

    I came here to find out the same thing. The breed list used to be fantastic and it was a great help in sorting out what type birds may be best suited to each individual. I find the current sorting options very unusual. Manufacturer?? And - when I used the sort options - it gave me a list of chicken breeds I'd never heard of with no recommendations.

    I'm hoping that this area is having some sort of tech issue that can be corrected. Unfortunately, it's pretty much useless in its current state.

    I have been doing that and discovered that not all breeds are in the alphabetical list. I'm interested in Delaware's and they're not there. Believe they were before.

    The breed section is very important, especially this time of year when everyone is getting chicks. That's why I was there, am trying to decide which chicks I want. I hope it's this area is back to its old self soon.

    I'm having the same issue but found that if you enter the breed you are interested in "search" and scroll down a few posts you will see the old "ranked" posts. You have to do it breed by breed but at least you can see the reviews and where they were ranked on the old list.
