ChicknPickn appGRIT Blogger Michelle Hernandez and her friends at Funny Farm Industries have updated the Pickin' Chicken Breed Selector by Mother Earth News. They've added more breeds (expanded to 82 breeds and more than 100 varieties), new photos and expanded search options.

Put together with expert breed advice from the American Livestock Breeds Association and the APA, the app helps you to find the ideal chicken breed for eggs, meat, personality, or any combination, now using more than 16 “Eggspert” search options.

“We’re pleased and humbled by the overwhelmingly positive feedback from our user community,” Michelle says. “We enjoy getting photo submissions from our users’ flocks. We get some funny ones as well as ones we share in our app.”

Here's a quick overview of the Pickin' Chicken app:

Someone new to the game can find breeds best for them by simply answering a few questions.

Jenn, I can definitely understand about keeping up with the blog posting. GRIT is definitely the most active blog site that I have seen for a Magazine. I think you do a great job of keeping everything running smoothly. Keep up the good work. Have a great Sr. Assoc. Editor day.

Hi Daves! Thanks for the positive feedback. My blog does seem to always be at the bottom of my priority list. I always choose getting blogs up for you all. Hope the Pickin' Chicken app is helpful to your chicken-loving smartphone-wielding friends! (GO BIG RED!)
