"Rare Poultry Breeds" covers virtually every rare breed that is likely to be encountered by poultry fanciers. It provides a detailed reference guide to the rarest, most obscure and, in a few cases, even extinct breeds of chickens and bantams that are often not mentioned in poultry books. One of the main reasons why fanciers keep particular breeds is that they wish to have 'a small piece of history' running around their garden. Accordingly, this book has a strong hsitorical content.
