Summary

Which came first, the chicken or the egg? That's just about the only question about chickens that isn't answered in "The Complete Chicken", which pays tribute to the popular poultry. Pam Percy provides a colorful, egg-straordinarily entertaining account of chicken history; breeds; the world of chicken collectibles; and the chicken's role in art, pop culture, myth, legend, religion, and folklore. The light-hearted yet informative text is complemented by delightful illustrations and photographs. Whether you've been a long-time fan of chickens or have recently become fascinated by these captivating creatures, you'll find something to crow about in "The Complete Chicken."
