Excellent. Superbly illustrated with detailed, colourful drawings. Detailed overview of all the common and many rarer chicken breeds. An excellent choice of gift for any chicken lover.

Even if you do not intend to keep chickens this is a beautifully illustrated book with many interesting facts.

What a beautiful book...highly recommended! It makes me want to go out and get some chicken! Nice book to look through just for the pictures.

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.

Bought for one of my sisters who keeps chickens. Lovely book, well illustrated and I am sure that she will love it.

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.

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!

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.
