Synopsis

Today's love affair with urban farming and backyard poultry coops means Tamara Staples' stunning photographs are more apropos than ever. Featuring glorious photos and informative text about more than forty unique breeds (many of them new to this edition), an introduction by Ira Glass, and a new resources section, this fully refreshed hardcover truly earns its new title: The Magnificent Chicken. The book features 50% new content: 24 new photos, including 12 all-new birds!
