The Chicken: A Natural History is a comprehensive, science-based exploration of the world of the chicken. Far from being "bird brains", these fantastic fowl demonstrate the unique abilities and talents that have made them an integral part of humans' lives for many thousands of years.
Topics include anatomy, developmental biology, ancestry, breeding and origins, and there is a comprehensive look at chicken behaviour. The book's final chapter is devoted to a beautiful visual study of the characteristics of particular breeds, providing quick-reference information on husbandry, particulars and appearance.
