Survey of Chicken Breeds and Hybrids

If you have several years experience raising different types of chickens, we would love to have your help with a survey we are conducting to determine characteristics of various breeds! This information will help people select birds for their flocks, and we plan to publish an article about the results in the April/May 2010 issue of MOTHER EARTH NEWS magazine.

Our survey is designed to compile the collective experience of as many people as possible, regarding various traits — foraging habits, egg-laying ability, temperament, potential for broodiness. The more people who contribute, the better the resulting information will be.

Depending on how many breeds you have experience with, the survey will take 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

To take the survey, click here.

If you'd like to see the results without taking the survey, click here. And if you know others whose experience would be helpful, please feel free to forward the survey link to them.

If you’re looking for chicks or hatching eggs, check out our Directory of Hatcheries and Poultry Breeders and the Mother Earth News Hatchery Finder.
