An actress, a style icon, and Hollywood royalty, Isabella Rossellini is also a chicken farmer. When a cardboard carton dotted with airholes arrived at her door, Rossellini expected to welcome 38 yellow chicks to her Long Island farm. Much to her surprise, her newly hatched brood included a diverse mix of heritage breeds—a discovery that prompted further research into the traits, behavior, and history of each one. Perfectly capturing the fine-feathered glory and surprising intelligence of these spirited backyard birds, this book pairs Rossellini's wry observations, fun facts, and hand-drawn illustrations with Patrice Casanova's color photographs of these outlandish birds.
