Popular Poultry Breeds
Crowood, 30 nov 2014 - 288 pagine
Popular Poultry Breeds examines forty mainstream breeds of chickens and bantams divided into thirty-five chapters. Most breeds exist in several plumage colour varieties, and in large and bantam (miniature) size versions, all of which are also included in this comprehensive book. Detailed histories of each breed are given, in many cases including the names of the breeders and where they lived. Also, the special management and selective breeding requirements needed for certain breeds is studied, even if they are not going to be entered into shows. The book includes helpful descriptions of the breeds, and is beautifully illustrated in full colour with over 180 photographs of prize-winning birds and nearly ninety reproductions of exquisite old prints of artist's drawings. This painstakingly researched reference work is aimed at smallholders, hobbyist poultry keepers, serious enthusiasts and those researching chicken breeds.
