The Illustrated Guide to Chickens covers the 100 most familiar breeds of chickens in Europe and North America.
The breed profiles are written in engaging text that covers the history of each breed, its main characteristics, and information about looking after them.
Each breed has been illustrated with delightful paintings by the author. Introductory sections contain practical advice about poultry-rearing and husbandry, and outline the differences between breeds, including the pros and cons between pure breeds, hybrids, bantams, game fowl, etc., and layers or table.
