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.
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! :-)
Fabulous photos - fancy show fowl. Not much info - mostly a coffee table book.
The only thing better than these chicken books is REAL CHICKENS!!
This is what a non-fiction book should look like! Excellent.
