Poultry Breeds is a fresh field guide of feathered friends with stunning photos highlighting the beauty and unique attributes of 104 chicken, duck, goose, and turkey breeds. Each profile outlines the bird's history, physical characteristics, and common uses, with specially noted fun facts sprinkled throughout. This pocket-size, browsable guide is easy to use, and author Carol Ekarius knows her birds: she has been writing about livestock for nearly 20 years and has raised her own for decades.
A reissue of Pocketful of Poultry (2007; 43,000 copies in print), Poultry Breeds features a new title and cover for this engaging photo gallery of 104 breeds of chickens, ducks, geese, and turkeys, with each one's special qualities profiled.
