5/5 stars

This book is not a guide to how you keep chicken, it’s a coffee table book that will make even the most impenitent chicken wing lover rethink. The photos show all the splendour these animals have, but also the uncannily obvious features that connect them with dinosaurs. You never see such detailed close ups of chicken as in this book and this gives a perfect opportunity to actually study their features and the expressions in their eyes. There is some predator instinct behind all that fluffiness!

This is a definitive feel-good book for anyone having chicken as pets or dreaming of having them. It is also a great illustrated guide to different breeds as there are plenty in this flock.
