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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Invaluable Chicken Resource for Pros and Beginners 25. Februar 2012
Von Freddy the Frog - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have in my poultry library, text dating back to 1860, including the farm series alongside poultry science college text books.

I buy chicken books! Back in the 90's, I carried Gail's book titled Chickens in your Backyard and I was hooked on all things poultry!

I was also hooked on all things written by Gail Damerow ever since... from periodical articles, to what I consider her benchmark work The Chicken Health Handbook (no serious poultry person should be without a copy).

The reason I mention this, is that I would be considered extremely well informed, read and experienced with poultry. I am a licensed Poultry Technician, have kept free range chickens for over a decade, teach about chickens and have hatched more than I can count. It is easy to let pride get in the way and assume that I know all there is to know about chickens... closing the door on new text and published works.

Then comes a new and much needed title to the scene... and by none other than my favorite farm animal author, Gail Damerow! I clicked "buy" without even reading all the content nor going beyond the title. The Chicken Encyclopedia arrived in the middle a snow storm, just in time for me to sit by the fire and delve into this new and fabulously illustrated chicken reference.

Not five minutes into it, I have learned something new! I get my note pad, as I'm scheduled to give a talk on chickens in less than a week... wow... I didn't know that (under my breath)... something as common as the chicken egg, ground I've well covered (or so I thought) over the years. Yes, white ear lobe = white shell... sure, red ear lobe = brown shell (old news)... but hold the phone! Blue egg shells (as one may get from the Ameraucana) have the color through the thickness of the shell, yet the brown shell (as one may get from a Rhode Island Red) have brown pigment only in the surface layer! What?! This I did NOT know... ("> In an instant, I am deeper in my knowledge of poultry!

I found one "aha" moment after another, page by page, illustration by illustration. 319 pages chockablock FULL of meaningful information.

I wanted a hard bound edition, these pages and cover will be dog eared and worn down in no time at all! The photography is Top Notch, the illustrations are not the recycled images I have found over and over in other texts... Bethany Caskey gets a A+ from me on her illustrator prowess (flawless).

This is a grand book, extremely well designed, easy to access information, dense with useful facts and terms. I feel robbed that I did not have this 20 years ago... when I was heavy on the learn. But the good news is, for the new poultry generation and those to come, this will certainly be a common site on many a coffee table and book shelf. I suggest it also belongs in biology class rooms.

Gail does it again and I feel, has stepped above all her previous works with this single book.

It's for anyone who has questions about breeds, terms, traits, physiology and all things chicken... without loading the reader with scientific mumbo jumbo that has no practical end.

My only complaint... inexpensive binding... page six has already begun to come free of it's stitching. I will anxiously await the hard bound edition and would consider any price to be well worth it!

This is indeed a TRUE Encyclopedia Regarding Chickens... what are you waiting for? Have questions? The answers are here! Buy The Chicken Encyclopedia without reservation, you won't be sorry.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Chicken Encyclopedia: An Illustrated Reference 29. Februar 2012
Von David D. Smith - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This is my fifth book written by author Gale Damerow. While I respectfully enjoy her previous works, this may be her best yet. Its just over 300 pages in length, and contains facts, illustrations and photographs from cover to cover. There's even a section toward the back, citing various breed traits, which will serve the reader(s) well. Gale Damerow has set the bar with this book, The Chicken Encyclopedia. And, despite being certain I knew everything about chickens, I've already learned enough on the initial review, to justify its modest price.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Accessible and Informative Reference 22. Februar 2012
Von Kristi C. - Veröffentlicht auf
Gail Damerow is a well-known name when it comes to chickens, having written the Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens and The Chicken Health Handbook. In The Chicken Encyclopedia, Damerow gathers an A to Z guide for chicken owners and enthusiasts. At over 300 pages, this book is a comprehensive reference to terms used for breeds, anatomy, disease and more. Special highlights on some topics, such as "beak trimming", "droppings" and "self-sufficient breeds", plus color illustrations provide an expansive overview to everything chicken.

While maybe not a book that you will spend leisurely reading cover to cover, The Chicken Encyclopedia is a must for those owning chickens. There is always something to learn, and Gail Damerow has provided a bright, accessible and informative reference.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Nice browse and reference but not a must have 20. Mai 2013
Von S. Sinclair - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
If you have read Gail Damerow's book Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens, you will find The Chicken Encyclopedia's content to be redundant. That being said, there are nice pictures and diagrams that are very useful, the index is a bit different which may help you find something, and entries are short and sweet.

If you only need one chicken book buy Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens after that City Chicks is a terrific choice or H. Ussery's The Small-Scale Poultry Flock if you are going to be mixing your own chicken rations, growing fodder, etc. And Damerow's Chicken Health book is good to have on hand.

Pros: Nice illustrations, pictures, diagrams; easy to read charts, relatively compressive entries for most of us
Cons: Damerow's other books have much of this content already, not a first chicken book

2.0 von 5 Sternen No Index 5. August 2013

No Index

There is no index that I can figure out. An encyclopedia without an index doesn't work. Needs an editoor.
