The Chicken (Paperback)

Joseph Barber

-  

The Chicken is an encyclopaedic, science-based study that offers a true understanding of the species, reclaiming it from its commercial status as a mere egg and meat provider. High-quality photography, illustration, and info-graphics combine with engaging and authoritative text to create an accessible reference title for the general market. Topics include anatomy, developmental biology, ancestry, breeding, and origins, and there is a comprehensive look at chicken behaviours. Boxed asides are included throughout, relating the scientific detail to the practicalities of chicken husbandry. The book's final chapter is devoted to a beautiful visual study of the characteristics of particular breeds, providing quick-reference information on their origins, particulars, and appearance.
