You’re enthusiastic about poultry, but somehow always seem to confuse your Jersey Giant from your La Fleche? Or maybe you’d think a Buttercup is just a dessert, and there’s no way it could be a breed of chicken? Then you’ve come to the right place. All this may sound confusing at first, but there’s no need to chicken out of the situation.

We’ve put together this extensive list to help you identify the different chicken breeds and also learn a few pieces of key information about them, such as their uses, the colour and size of their eggs, as well as the category they’re part of.
You can browse through the alphabetically sorted list or simply use the filters below to select the criteria of your choice.
