Pocketful of Poultryby Carol Ekarius
Synopses & Reviews
Poultry in a pocket-size book? Why not, when the birds in question are neatly corralled into an appealing little volume, just right for gift giving, easy browsing, or tucking into a bag or pocket for quick reference at a poultry show or auction.
More than 100 poultry pals show their amazing colors in full-page images that capture their good looks and lively personalities. Intricate feather patterns, imposing crests and wattles, and grinning beaks are just a few of their appealing features. From laying hens to heritage turkeys to adorable ducks, here are all the common barnyard favorites, plus rare breeds from around the world.
Facing each poultry portrait is an informational page offering facts about the breed and a handy at-a-glance reference bar identifying the type of poultry (chicken, turkey, duck, goose), its primary use (laying, meat, game, or ornamental bird), and its conservation status. Breeders, enthusiasts, and anyone who has ever paused to admire a handsome chicken will be delighted by the photographs and enlightened by the breed profiles in Pocketful of Poultry.
