Hi All,
A small but important notice.
A couple of typo errors have been reported, so for all that have bought a book, please keep an eye on chickencolours.com as an Eratum will be established.

Error on p191
Golden Duckwing should read
Gold Duckwing
e+/e+ s+/- Ar+/Ar+ (Di/Di) in hen
e+/e+ s+/s+ Ar+/ar (Di/Di) in cock
This variety is made by the combination of gold and autosomal red, Dilute is often present but is not essential.
Hackle stripping shows a lot of variation in this colour.

David - do other purchasers get notified?

Would you like me to relay this to GCCC? (I am #1 on a list to borrow but their copies are quite available yet :) )

:) I received my copy of this book today and I'm very pleased with it. I wish it was autographed but who knows one day I might meet you both and I can get your autograph and express my thanks in person. :)
Thank you David for packaging my book so thoughtfully for postage I'm very grateful. :D

David, received your book yesterday, thanks a lot for signing it !
What a beautiful work of art !
And as far as I can judge from a glance at the text it will be a pleasure to read.
Things are so well explained and understandable and the photos and paintings are just fabulous - such a pleasure to look at !
:thanks:

For those that would like to see before they buy, or just can't afford one at this time, there are now books in the Gold Coast City Library.
