5.0 out of 5 stars Where Was This Book Last Year?, August 6, 2009
This review is from: Raising Chickens For Dummies (Paperback)
I started raising chickens last year. Before that I read a lot of chicken books and got some necessary basic information. Many of the books were much too technical for my level and/or for what I wanted to know.

The wonderful thing about this book is the way it's written. Every subject area starts off and ends with simple, thorough explanations for the reader. After reading a page or two, I invariably realize that I fully understand what normally would have been confusing and complicated.

I keep it by my recliner, open it anywhere, read the page and learn something new every time. I seriously doubt that I will ever need to buy another book about chickens.

Joe,

I am in the planning phase of raising chickens and hoping you can help me out. I also live in Greenwood, IN. I looked in the city's municipal code and found that keeping poultry is not allowed. Did you have to get a variance or permit to do this or do you live in an area where it is permitted?

Thank you for any help you can give!!!

Emily

Emily, I'm not Joe, but I would go to your Local City Hall, and ask them your question. It is a good question.
If you need sometype of permit, make sure you get it so you are not fined..
Many people in N.Y, on there balconies are raising a few chickens for there eggs.
Do not get a Roaster lol..
I hope where your going to have chicken , have some grass and bugs for them to eat. You might want to find a good food for them with OUT SOY.
Read the , Whole Soy Story. ( I have nothing to do with that book)
Good luck..

M.R.
First of all, Reviews are "NOT" a spelling contest. ..

Sorry you do not understand. But Soy is Not a healthy food to eat, unless its formented Soy, or fresh soy beans..
If your feeding your chickens with feed that has Soy it in, Your eating Eggs with Soy in it also..

If you feeding your chickens poison, the eggs from that chicken are going to have the Poison in them also.
We are what we eat.
Hope you now get it!!!
