This little book, meant for children, is one of the best introductory books I have read on the subject. Gail Gibbons has started with a wonderful anatomy lesson addressing chicks, hens and roosters. She has well covered the subjects of care, feeding housing, behavior of chickens, and the rewards of raising your own for egg production. She has addressed the nesting habits and has given very detailed information as to the reproduction of these feathered critters as well as the egg laying process.
The vocabulary used when messing with chickens is precise and well explained. Most of the illustrations, which are done with watercolor, are liberally sprinkled with notes meant more for the adult who is reading this book with their child. To be quite frank, I have to admit I learned a few facts I was not aware of myself.Read more ›
