Chicks and Chickens

Chicks and Chickens

Domestic chickens are an essential part of agriculture and food production in America. Gibbons takes a look at how chicken eggs are developed for human consumption and at how fertilized eggs develop into embryos and finally into fuzzy little baby chicks. The behavior of the birds is discussed, and descriptions of the different breeds of chickens across America are provided. Once again Gibbons provides a colorful, accessible account of this familiar, domesticated bird.
