The illustrated guide to chickens
Run, do not walk, to buy .... wait for it... The Illustrated Guide to Chickens. I am NOT KIDDING. This new release book was so important it garnered it's very own personal promotional push and made me laugh so hard I nearly fell off my wheelie office chair.
So what can you expect from this thrilling new look into the secret world of chickens? According to the promo: "This book covers the 100 most familiar chicken breeds in Europe and North America. The breed profiles are written in an engaging style that covers the history of each breed, the main characteristics, and how to look after them. Each breed is illustrated with delightful paintings by the author. The illustrations also detail comb types, feather markings, colours and other significant characteristics."
It gets better the forward of the book is written by no less than His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. Yup.
If you are one of the many thousands of people rushing out to find out more about the humble chicken this book is available from www.allenandunwin.com and is $23.99. Love it!
