article imagePictures of Championship Chickens like Dog Show Items

By Chris V. Thangham     Jan 25, 2007 in Entertainment
Championship Chickens Pictures groomed to perfection.
These are portaits of chicken that are groomed for Championship Chickens Shows similar to dog shows. It looks the owners have spent enormous time grooming the chicken, even Charles Darwin would be amazed with the tinkering they have done. Not much information is available from this site, the pictures of these chicken is from a book, The Fairest Fowl: Portraits of Championship Chickens by Ira Glass. The reviews look ok, so you can check this book out in the library before you buy this. They seem to have photos but not much details of each chicken based on one customer review. Here are a few reviews of this book:
This book has amazing portraits of chickens with some imformation about each one. I wish the author had told us where each breed is from. Also is was not comprehensive of u s chicken breeds, but still an outstanding book.
This is a gorgeous book. The pictures are breath taking and as Ira Glass said the birds really do "look" like they have personality. It's amazing. The pictures are clean and crisp and the description pages having interesting information about the birds. This is not a reference book though, it's purely for fun and for admiring.

I used to grow Chicken when I was a kid, they were not even close. After seeing this pics, you don't feel like eating chicken.
