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:

From the author of Extraordinary Chickens comes the latest extraordinary animal--the pig. One of the most intelligent animals on earth, the pig is a fascinating creature with an abundance of personality. Photographer Stephen Green-Armytage captures these lively and energetic animals as they play and forage on the farm, prance around in the show ring, or strut across a studio backdrop. 

Extraordinary Pigs displays an enormous variety of swine, 38 in total, including tiny Kunekunes, wrinkled Meishans, spotted Gloucester Old Spots, curly-coated Mangalitzas, wild boars, and some miniatures, which are highly prized as pets. Breeds from around the world are featured here--from the United States, England, Wales, Austria, Belgium, Hungary, New Zealand, China, Vietnam, Africa, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
