Editorial Reviews


“Kathy's Chicken Chick blog is one of the few consistently reliable online sources of information on all things chicken. Her book does not disappoint.”
- Bestselling poultry author Gail Damerow

Kathy provides excellent information in a well-organized format about how to maintain the health of chickens and care for them properly. As a chicken owner myself, her book enlightened me on husbandry practices that I will incorporate into my flock. I am thrilled to have this comprehensive guide to pet chickens as a resource, and will recommend it to all of my poultry clients.
- Forrest I. Townsend, III, DVM, DACVS

I’ve known and worked with Kathy since 2012, and am very pleased finally to see a backyard chicken book written by someone so knowledgeable and dedicated to spreading real facts that dispel many of the rumors surrounding backyard chicken keeping. You are holding a well-written and reliably fact-checked book--and an invaluable addition to your bookshelf!
- Mike Petrik, DVM, MsC, aka "Mike, The Chicken Vet"

The Chicken Chick Facebook page and blog are meccas of chicken-keeping knowledge and first-hand expertise. Kathy’s book continues in that same spirit. Grab a pen as you read, because you’ll want to underline and dog-ear constantly. Newbies and seasoned poultry owners will learn something new and invaluable on nearly every page, from fun tips to advice that may literally save a bird’s life. A must-own for poultry owners and anyone looking to start this incredibly rewarding hobby.
- Brettan Hawkins, Social Media Manager, Tractor Supply Company

As a large-scale provider of poultry, we understand how overwhelming it can be to get started and continue raising healthy chickens. The Chicken Chick blog has always been a rock-steady source of reliable, information for raising healthy backyard chickens in a friendly, approachable way. Kathy now offers the same common-sense, practical approach to the care and keeping of chickens in her new book, which guides chicken keepers through everything they need to know to raise healthy chickens. We highly recommend this book to chicken keepers of all experience levels.
- Jeff Smith, Cackle Hatchery

Kathy Shea Mormino has written a practical, common-sense, easy-to-read book for both the first-time and experienced backyard chicken fancier.
- Michael Darre, PhD, Professor of Poultry Science, University of Connecticut

From the Inside Flap

Several generations removed from growing their own food, families consciously seeking fresh, local eggs from humanely raised hens are flocking back to resuscitate the wilted roots of self-reliance planted by their forebearers. Most of those venturing into modern-day chickening do so sans family mentors or local Sherpas to guide the way, unaware of the pitfalls that the "how hard could it be?" mentality forebodes. Moreover, few are prepared for the shocking realization that these unique, food-producing animals quickly become beloved family pets with specific management and medical needs that the veterinary community is largely untrained to meet. 
Internationally known as The Chicken Chick, Kathy Shea Mormino brings an informative style and fresh perspective on raising backyard chickens to millions of fans around the world. An attorney by profession, Kathy is the founder and one-woman creative force behind the wildly popular and award-winning Facebook page and blog, The Chicken Chick. With the friendly approachability of the smart girl next door, Kathy's engaging, irreverent style makes chicken keeping accessible regardless of experience level, and intriguing (if not enviable) to those without chickens.
Now her practical, down-to-earth approach to chicken keeping is available in this book. Sharing her years of hard-earned experience and collaborations with poultry veterinarians, nutritionists, and professors, she provides simple steps to care for these uncommon pets with confidence. Kathy's personality permeates the book as she guides newbie, veteran, and would-be backyard chickeneers through all aspects of small flock care- from getting into the hobby to housing, feeding, egg production, health, and much more. The result is accurate information presented in the fun and abundantly illustrated format that Kathy has delivered on her blog for years.
