Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Although most people think the term poultry refers to chickens, it also includes other domesticated farm birds, such as ducks, geese, and turkeys. Livestock breeder Ekarius covers all these birds and more in her colorful guide to poultry varieties. After an introductory chapter on poultry genetics and breeding, the author begins with the most numerous of poultry, the chickens. She takes a breed-by-breed look at each type, divided into the laying breeds, the meat breeds, and the ornamental breeds. A short write-up describes the breed, giving a little of its history and development. Boxed facts list the poultry show class, the size, details of the feather color, comb and wattles, place of origin, conservation status (many breeds are rare or endangered), and any special qualities. Waterfowl, turkeys, and other birds, such as guinea fowl, ostriches, and pigeons, each receive similar treatment. Beautiful photographs illustrate each breed. An extensive glossary, a list of resources (including breed clubs, other organizations, and hatcheries), and a bibliography complete a nice all-in-one introduction. Bent, Nancy
