There are hundreds of chicken breeds to choose from, whether you are looking for a pet, eggs or meat. Choosing a chicken for your flock from the back may seem difficult, with all the options in beautiful exotic, excellent layers of egg and dispositions there.
Although all the chickens put eggs, not every day they will be placed every day from the day they are between four and five months, at 4 years. The balance with good layers of egg is that they generally do not like sitting down, so that fertilization and eclosion can not be possible without an incubator.

Best breeds for meat
The primary goal of meat production is the hens that had a little weight in the first sixteen weeks of life. For most, because they are not expected to be long-lived, the personality of the breed is not as important as with the layers of eggs that are treated daily for years. The good breeds producing meat are:
Cornish – Poorly poor layers with fine feathers and protected from cold
Cornish Cross: fast-growing hybrid, but with heart attacks and broken legs
There are many chickens that are good double-purpose agglomerations for meat and eggs. Some of these are shown below and, in general, have fewer eggs than the layers of. Most of these breeds will put between 4 and 5 eggs per week.
Brahma: very nice to see, even if it is not a top layer, this chicken places a respectable amount of eggs and also makes a great pet.
Buckeye: A race of heritage
Catalina – A double purpose bird that is also a top layer.
Whether your intention is to lay eggs or meat, the variety of breed options can be daunting.
