From addled to wind egg, crossed beak to zygote, the terminology of everything chicken is demystified in "The Chicken Encyclopedia", a comprehensive A-to-Z reference volume presented in a friendly, highly illustrated format. Whether it's the difference between wry tail, split tail, and gamy tail; the meaning of hen feathered, forced molt, or quill feather; the characteristics of droopy wing; the content of granite grit; or the translation of a chicken's alarm call, here are all the answers to every chicken question and quandary, from the practical to the curious. The in-depth entries go beyond simple definitions to offer solutions to problems, instructions for tasks from catching a chicken to candling an egg, and historical origins of poultry-related terms. The fascinating lore behind breeds such as the Dutch Bantam and the Egyptian Fayoumi are detailed, as well as the reasons for behaviours from beak beating to head shaking.
