Book Description

15 Mar 2010 Know Your...
This title introduces 44 breeds of chicken which can be seen pecking an preening in Britain today. Jack accompanies each with a description of the animal's appearance and explains the different colours and patterns which appear within the breed. Jack has thoroughly researched the history of each animal and its breeding. He also gives details of their personalities and egg-laying and flying abilities. Among others, Jack introduces the lazy Barnvelder, friendly Belgian D'Uccle, the high-flying Ancona and the 'French Poodle of the chicken world' - the Faverolles. This fascinating range of breeds is sure to make anyone a chicken enthusiast. The book is designed for novices but an established enthusiast will find no shortage of interest.

4.0 out of 5 stars deserves a place on the chicken book shelf 3 May 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent little book, I say little as I was quite surprised when I opened the package and saw the size of it. Inspite of this it is a well designed, informative book with good photographs and well deserving of a place on the chicken book shelf.

4.0 out of 5 stars Know you chickens 13 Jun 2010
Very informative in an elementary way. It outlines the recognition features and the pictures are very clear. I think that it would be useful to add internet references as to where further information about the particular types of chicken is available for those seeking more in depth information.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Photos!!! 19 April 2012
By Tamara, Oklahoma - Published on
I liked the photos in this book. I enjoyed the information. The book was short and sweet. I would have liked to see more pictures of the hens and chicks...I was trying to identify the chickens in my own backyard...all hens. I did not answer all of my questions with this book, but found it to be informative and beautiful all the same.

This is a small book, but it's informative, if you're interested in chickens at all. Our copy was donated to the local elementary school which has a farm attached to it.

this is a great little book for a quick overview of the different breeds of chicken in this world. nice, colorful pictures. really liked the info about the temperament on the different breeds. helps with finding the breed(s) you could be interested in, and then if you want more in depth, detailed info, you will need to get additional books/resources to further your research. this book is a great starting point.
