Synopsis

Extra Extraordinary Chickens by Stephen Green-Armytage

With gorgeous colour photographs and informative text, Stephen Green-Armytage surveys many breeds around the world, capturing with his camera chickens of all sizes, shapes, and colours and illuminating gorgeous feather patterns, elaborate wattles and boots, and many other details. Included are breeds developed in Japan, Malaysia, Britain, France, Italy, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Australia, South America, the United States, and elsewhere. For breeders and enthusiasts, this volume will be a treasure they must own; for others it will be a revelation, worth having for the sheer enjoyment of the striking photographs and the amazing animals they portray. The original Extraordinary Chickens will be rejacketed to tie in visually with this new book.
