From addled to wind egg, crossed beak to zygote, the terminology of everything chicken is demystified in The Chicken Encyclopedia, an illustrated A-to-Z reference that is both informative and entertaining.

Chickophiles will find breed descriptions; definitions of common chicken conditions, situations, and behaviours; and much more. Whether it's the differences among 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.
