Chickens of all sizes, shapes, and colors parade through these pages, as Green-Armytage captures the surprising and expressive personality of these amazing birds. For breeders, this will be a volume they must own; for everyone else, it will be a revelation, prized for the sheer enjoyment of the striking photographs and the extraordinary animals they portray.

I see London, I see FRANCE....
Someone pointed out
this guy also does pheasants
and, of course, pigeons --
I am not sure if
there's a deeper meaning here,
but only chickens
as a large wall calendar.
It must mean some thing.
