"As a city boy who never knew or cared much about chickens, what can I say other than this book just blew me away. Who knew that there was so much diversity, so much beauty, such a subculture of aficionados, such great photography, and such humor. About chickens." - TreeHugger.com "The labor of love chronicles purebred fowls, championship chickens, and more than 40 eccentric breeds, blending lively text and brilliant and peculiar photographs by Tamara Staples, who has been following champion chickens since 1998." -- Town&Country Magazine online "Stunning photographic studies of all manner of domesticated fowl, from the more traditional breeds to the downright strange.... Although the photographs are the book's main attraction, one reason it's a keeper is the wonderful insight it provides into the strange, somewhat underground world of poultry showing." -- Design Sponge "Required reading. Foghorn Leghorn might be the most recognizable chicken, but breeds range from the elaborately feathered Sultan and the stately Brahma to pint-sized Bantams. In The Magnificent Chicken, photographer Tamara Staples documents 41 different types. Her compendium of books, websites, magazines, and organizations that offer support to chicken enthusiasts is indispensable." - Dwell
