"Why'd the chicken cross the road? For a copy of Pocketful of Poultry, of course."Albuquerque Journal "Hundreds of chickens, ducks, geese, and turkeys are beautifully illustrated in this field guide. Along with the color photos of each bird are facts on the breed history, size, features, place of origin, special qualities, and conservation status. Fascinating facts and detailed photos portraying poultry features are strewn throughout the guide. The chicken section classifies each breed as ornamental, laying, or meat variety. A glossary of the conservation status terms and several pages describing the color varieties of poultry complete the book." Booklist
