I bought this thinking that it would have something helpful in it. All the information I knew from my researches before I started raising chickens. The list of food to not feed your chickens was shocking since the list pretty much includes EVERYTHING other than feed or treats you can buy at the store that is intended for chickens. It had false information about the Easter Egger Chicken (the breed I am raising), and it did not cover all the breeds of chickens. For the price I thought the book would be more thorough, it was a waste of money.

This is a basic little book about chickens. I have read more informative books previously but a good starting point.
And really, everyone who has the room needs to raise their own chickens!!

This guide tells anyone considering raising chickens a wide range of things to consider and to prepare for. It tells you various methods to protect them, what the range of cost is for feeding, housing, etc. It also gives the reader an idea what to expect from having them. The author has found that too many people jump in to raising chickens and do not realize exactly what the chickens' needs are and what the owner's responsibilities are. This is a good place to start to get an idea for what to expect.

I found the information to be very well written & informative. It's not only a good book for beginners but it is a very good reference book to use while raising chickens. It answered a lot of questions I had concerning back yard coops.

Everything is covered in this book. Raising chickens isn't rocket science and you will quickly know what your hens like and dislike. Overall it's a good read
