Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Many people are not aware of the exotic nature of "fancy breed" chickens, so this unique volume, with 165 amazing color photographs of all kinds of international breeds, will be a revelation.

Book News Annotation:

Presents intimate color portraits of 50 beautiful and unusual breeds of show chickens. Photos are grouped in 17 thematic sections including breeds like Frizzles and Silkies; types including game birds and decorative banties; and features that include muffs, fluffy top-knots, bloomers, warty or antler-like combs, and marvelous, clown-red wattles. Includes a brief preface and a description of the breeds.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

An introduction to the world of exotic ornamental chickens. The book contains photographs of chickens of all shapes and sizes, including the Bearded Silkie, the crested Polish and the majestic Phoenix.

Synopsis:

Flaunting their high-fashion plumage, chickens strut and pose like runway models for photographer Ernest Goh. These birds, with their all-too-human expressions, are both funny and poignant, as if they are commenting on our own foibles. From the proud Serama of Malaysia to the delightfully humorous Silkie, Gohandrsquo;s portraits, shot on location throughout the world, convey not only the beauty and diversity of various breeds, but also capture the personality of each fowl. For sheer variety in size, color, feathering, and behavior, nothing beats the humble chicken, and no other book
captures this surprising phenomenon as well as the hilarious Chickens.

Synopsis:

This annual parade of poultry features the most extraordinary of the extraordinaryandmdash;from Polish Frizzles to Belgian Bearded dandrsquo;Uccles to Russian Orloffsandmdash;includes previously unpublished photographs.
