Popular Poultry Breeds examines forty popular breeds of chickens and bantams divided into thirty-five chapters. Most breeds exist in several plumage colour varieties, and in large and bantam [miniature] size versions, all of which are also included in this comprehensive book.

Provides detailed histories of each breed, in many cases including the names of the breeders and where they lived. Examines the special management and selective breeding requirements needed for certain breeds, even if they are not going to be entered into shows. Includes helpful descriptions of the breeds. Beautifully illustrated in full colour with over 180 photographs of prize-winning birds and nearly ninety reproductions of exquisite old prints of artist's drawings.
