Details

This attractive pocket-sized paperback for the novice enthusiast shows forty-four breeds of chicken that you are likely to find pecking and preening around Britain today.

Each breed is presented with a quality photograph, many of which are by specialist cameraman David Brandreth. Jack accompanies each with a description of the bird’s history and characteristics such as flightiness. Jack goes on to give guidance on whether the breed is suitable for the amateur poultry keeper and what their egg-laying averages are likely to be.

Unlike other animal breeds in the Know Your … series most chicken breeds have recognised colours and variants. Jack describes these in a special panel. He also includes general information on chicken terms and features such as comb shapes.

This small book is packed with a wealth of information and interest. There’s also a fox but like the real thing, he’s sly and hard to find.…
