This title introduces 44 breeds of chicken which can be seen pecking an preening in Britain today. Jack accompanies each with a description of the animal's appearance and explains the different colours and patterns which appear within the breed. Jack has thoroughly researched the history of each animal and its breeding. He also gives details of their personalities and egg-laying and flying abilities. Among others, Jack introduces the lazy Barnvelder, friendly Belgian D'Uccle, the high-flying Ancona and the 'French Poodle of the chicken world' - the Faverolles. This fascinating range of breeds is sure to make anyone a chicken enthusiast. The book is designed for novices but an established enthusiast will find no shortage of interest.
