Received as a gift b/c everyone knows I LOVE chickens. Immediately I found the chicken that represents me and the chicken that represents who I'd like to be... The most marked difference was in amount of head fluff. Yep, I have lost of my ever-chicken-lovin' mind.

This is a very fun picture book. Chickens can be really cool looking. This is the sequel. The first one is also full of great looking chickens.

very interesting breeds depicted!!

Some 70 different breeds of hens and roosters are presented in this lovely book full of great animal portraits. Some of these birds are incredible.
The book gives a bit of information on the development of the different breeds but it remains a photography book. The chapters are organized around themes (colours of the feathers, feet, spurs, crests...) and close-ups on breeds.
A book that will make you discover the beauty and variety of the chicken world! :-)
