Chicken Breed Selector App for iPhone Reflects Growing interest in Backyard Chickens

In addition to burgeoning online resources such as the Backyard Chicken Forum (nearly 75,000 users), a preponderance of backyard chicken books (over a dozen on Amazon) , and local County Extension Office "Chicken 101" Workshops, Mother Earth News has just announced a chicken app for the iPhone, iPad, and iTouch: Pickin Chicken.

The app is not a menu planner, but a searchable database designed to aid in selecting among 75 different breeds, using more than a dozen search criteria. Think of it as sort of a field guide to domestic chicken breeds.  

$2.99 from Apple's online app store.
