Kippen - Chickens is a fascinating and wonderfully illustrated standard work on chickens. Highly recommended for anyone who has (something to do with) chickens!

Dual Language Edition - all content is in both English and Dutch.

Chickens are surely the most important and widespread birds on earth. They are of great importance to the world food supply, but also to the ordinary poultry fanciers. The poultry industry and everything related to that take an increasingly important role in our society. Poultry fanciers keep mainly purebreds in a large range of breeds and varieties. With that they preserve a living cultural heritage and protect the important genetic traits of chickens.

In this book you will find the history of chickens in word and image. Old and historic and sometimes very special images go almost 4,000 years back and show the evolution of chickens throughout the ages e.g. in archaeology, art, architecture, religion, and their importance as farm animals. In addition, you will find the most important poultry breeds worldwide and the most typical Dutch breeds described and depicted; their history, forms, meat production and eggs and other useful properties. Furthermore, the book is expanded with a detailed glossary to clarify commonly used poultry terminology.

In short, a very interesting, fascinating and wonderfully, if not uniquely, illustrated standard work on chickens. Highly recommended for anyone who has (something with) chickens!
