Publisher Comments:

An awe-inspiring collection featuring commissioned photographic portraits of the best in feathered beauties

Beautiful Chickens takes the humble farmyard fowl and places it in the frame of a top portrait photographer. Stylishly lit and shot against a studio background, the portraits showcase 40 of the world's most distinctive breeds, primped and preened for their moment of fame at assorted livestock shows. Featuring prize-winning cocks and hens, this is the ultimate in poultry portraiture. The book includes descriptions of each breed, covering their origins, physical attributes, and uses. There's also a history of hens and roosters through the ages, an introduction to the breed basics, and reportage photography from behind the scenes.

Beautiful Chickens is the perfect gift for anyone, whether their fancy is for all things fowl or simply for beautiful photography.
