Poultry Breeds Pocket Guide

Poultry Breeds Pocket Guide Details

Pocketful of Poultry by Carol Ekarius is a small-format, pocket-sized, field guide style book. It is only 4 by 6 inches in size, but packs a ton of info (272 pages) into that small format. 

Pocketful of Poultry gives brief but poignant and useful accounts of 104 different breeds of chicken, ducks, geese, and turkeys. Both common and rare breeds are covered. All the photos are brilliantly done, in full color, portrait style. And males and females of each breed are shown along with occasional close-ups of feathering patterns, combs, colors, etc. 

Pocketful of Poultry is very similar in content to the more detailed, Storey's Illustrated Guide to Poultry Breeds by the same author. But Pocketful is designed as a quick and easy guide that delivers lots of info quickly and concisely. Each breed of chicken has a very useful thumbnail guide to the breeds' best production purposes. Conservation status, origin, notable features, and special qualities are included as well.
