Favourite chicken books
chicken, tracing the history of Gallus domesticus from ancient times and covering mythology, folklore and its role in literature. The book takes us through cock-fighting and a global look at the chicken and ends with modern day chicken-keeping. A wonderful blend of facts and advice showing us all what an impact the unappreciated chicken has had upon man.
For good old-fashioned advice I like The Complete Book of Poultry-Keeping by Stuart Banks.
