    I'm hoping someone could point me in the right direction. We don't have any chickens yet but plan on spending the next year learning and get some backyard chickens next year. My second son wants to be a zoo keeper some day and I am having him research chicken breeds as a part of our learning process. Could someone recommend some resources to check out breeds and conditions for keeping them?

    Hi and welcome to BYC from northern Michigan :D

    I also recommend the Henderson chicken chart, it is a great resource.
