Wow! If you thought chickens were scrawny brown things, pecking around in the dirt you won't believe your eyes when you see what's between the covers of this fun-sized, all-colour book on chickens. Chickens with bouffant hairdos, chickens with "fur", chickens that look as if they have been drawn by animators on acid. Long legs, short legs, legs with "trousers" on, legs with scales. Proud roosters strutting their stuff, miniature bantams with Napoleon complexes, coy araucanas hiding their heads. Photographer Stephen Green-Armytage manages to capture the nature and beauty of an enormous range of exotic, ornamental chickens from around the world. Accompanied by knowledgeable descriptions and origins of each bird, every photograph is guaranteed to bring a smile to the face if not an outright chuckle at the absurdity of some of their appearances and expressions. Chicken fancier or not, this is a must for lovers of animals, birds, the exotic and the bizarre. Fabulous. - Lucy Watson
