Few farmyard and back-garden animals display such appealing and amusing characteristics as chickens. Some continually scratch the ground in search of insects, many just bustle and hustle, while others reveal self-importance through a measured walk. They would have been outstanding vaudeville acts, but their egg-laying and meat-producing abilities have been hijacked to produce food for millions of people throughout the world each day. Decorated throughout with historical woodcuts and engravings, and packed with intriguing facts and folklore, this book is not only a charming gift but is also a useful practical guide to keeping chickens at home.


David Squire has written more than 60 books on gardening and smallholding, including two about chickens: The Henkeeping Specialist and Keeping Chickens: The Essential Guide for First-time Keepers. David studied at the Royal Horticultural Society's Garden at Wisley, Surrey, and has received the American Garden Writers Association 'Quill and Trowel' award.
