I bought this for my father as he has kept chickens in various countries. He does not have any chickens at the moment, and he was delighted with the book, and all the different varieties of chickens, which he recognised. He loves it - beautiful photographs. Only wish the size of the book was a little bigger than a pocket book. Otherwise lovely gift for chicken keepers.

The photography is excellent, the images are very good, and depict a wide variety of the feathered fowls. The day squares alternate two different colors. Some of these are dark, making it hard to read anything written on them. A light colored marker works but not as well as a pen. Other than that, great calendar.

Second year owning this calender. Some of the chickens are quite extraordinary, although some are more ordinary.. I do enjoy the monthly bonus chicken though which often makes up the lack of extraordinariness in the main chicken.
