As a "backyard" chicken keeper, I loved this book. I am not sure a reader that is not familiar with the joys of chickens would enjoy the book as much, but I loved it and hope it is the first of many books on these wonderful, feathered friends.
Any additional comments?
What can I say? I started reading this hoping that it would be about evolution or selective breading, something along those lines anyways. I was expecting lots of references and evidences of how Chickens came to be. the narration is alright, though not captivating enough to make the book really worth it. As I read the book, i kept finding myself asking, that's it? Is that all the evidence the author had to offer? Granted, there were some interesting sections, especially when the author speaks of how humans use to view chickens and how it is used in literature, but I was also expecting some more science throughout. In the end, I didn't finish the book, because it seems to slip into narration as it draws to an end and there was still very little references to how chickens changed throughout the year.
One good thing that came out from reading this book; I finally remember the order in which an organism is classified. Not highly recommended aside from that.
