Favourite chicken books

Your Chickens - - Contents -

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.
