2.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother
I brought three books this was the worst. Illustrations are not pictures but some idiot who has painted them. Not much information regarding looking after the chickens!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great resource to help you decide which is best for you!, 13 Jun. 2011
This review is from: The Illustrated Guide to Chickens: How to Choose Them - How to Keep Them (Hardcover)
Bought this because, as an artist and chicken-keeper, it was pretty, foremost, and would be good couch potato reading. It proved successful on both fronts. It makes a great sunday morning read with your tea as you dream of getting this hen or that rooster. The illustrations were wonderful and prompted my dad (a farm boy in the 20s)to share his stories of raising chickens and selling eggs in small town Texas.
Do feel they should leave off the 'How to keep them" as it really is more about what to expect from the hen than how to keep them happy.

This review is from: The Illustrated Guide to Chickens: How to Choose Them - How to Keep Them (Hardcover)
This beautifully produced book would make a wonderful present for anyone moving to the country, thinking of keeping chickens or considering different breeds. The illustrations will inspire even the most pedestrian artist to reach for their water-colours and start painting birds.

5.0 out of 5 stars All you ever want to know about hens, 25 Jun. 2011
This review is from: The Illustrated Guide to Chickens: How to Choose Them - How to Keep Them (Hardcover)
This is simply the most gorgeous book - I bought it to give to a friend but couldn't part with it and had to buy another copy. Excellent down to earth advice on how to keep them and beautiful watercolour illustrations - even an egg and chick for each breed - scrumptious!

This review is from: The Illustrated Guide to Chickens: How to Choose Them - How to Keep Them (Hardcover)
The pictures in this book are absolutly gorgeous, much better than a camera can capture, the text is mostly specific to each breed but there is a little on keeping hens but to my mind it's far outweighed by the breed descriptions & paintings. It's not the book to turn to for practical advice re: illnesses etc. but fantastic for those choosing a breed to start or add to a flock.
