Spend some time online, especially on sits like BackYardChickens.com and you can actually learn about everything discussed in this book for free, and be offered practical solutions, perspectives and guidelines. Don't waste your money on this book.

This is a great book. I recommend it for anyone who is a seasoned chicken owner, new to chicken ownership, or wants to learn more before getting started. The author touches on so many topics in a concise manner that prompts you to learn more on that subject. I highly recommend this book and will be using it as a reference from now on.

I have been dreaming of having chickens for a couple of years now. To prepare for that day when I can finally have some, I have been reading everything I can get my hands on. There is so much conflicting information out there, it is really, really tough wading through it all and trying to decide what will be right for my flock. I wish I had just started with this book. The author has sorted through the facts and opinions and given really clear, concise reports on each controversial topic. I LOVE this! It is easy to read and understand and I love how she has lists and facts in the Appendix that will make it a wonderful go-to reference once I get my chickens. Definitely a must have!!

New to farm life, my daughter recently expressed an interest in our raising chickens. Chicken Hot Topics by Jessica E. Lane gave our family a lot of good information to help us decide if this is a good decision for our family. We are thinking 2015 will be our year to start keeping chickens. Thank you, Jessica E. Lane!

I loved this book. It is straightforward, fact based, and leaves out any anecdotal evidence. The author clearly knows her stuff. I would highly recommend this book for anyone with chickens, but particularly for those just getting in to raising chickens. There is so much conflicting information out there that this book makes it easy to avoid hours of reading unhelpful internet "wisdom". The book is easy to read and short enough that it can easily be read in a short time. Great book and well worth the price.
