Pickin ChickensDid attending the Fair make you want to go out back and start building a chicken coop? If you've gotten far enough in your chicken-keeping research to look at specific breeds, look no further than the newly updated Mother Earth News Pickin' Chicken app.

The app can help you find what kind of breed is best for your climate, and how each breed rates for meat and egg production. Jenn Nemec at our sister magazine Grit has a great review of the app up on her blog. If you have an iPhone or iPad, check it out!
