The Chicken

A natural history

Dr. Joseph Barber

‘The Chicken’ is a timely, encyclopaedic, science-based study that offers a true understanding of the species, reclaiming it from its commercial status as a mere egg and meat provider. Topics include anatomy, development biology, ancestry, breeding and origins, and there is a comprehensive look at chicken behaviours.

The book’s final chapter is devoted to a beautiful visual study of the characteristics of particular breeds, providing quick-reference information on their origins, particulars and appearance.
