It was a bit heavy on the scientific lexicon despite the claim that it was "written for the common man", but loaded with invaluable information on poultry genetics. It you're trying to breed towards or away from certain phenotypes or genotypes, or just trying to figure out why you keep getting certain results, this book may prove helpful in guiding you in the right direction.

Way over my head I thought this would be an easier read, I'm 30 years old with a high school education this book was not made for the everyday joe like me. If your a college student or have a biology background this book is for you.

Well written, in depth and detailed review of all aspects of poultry genetics. I am using this book to prepare a poultry genetics talk for our elementary school STEM program.

For anyone wishing to improve genetics with their flock, this book is required reading. Thanks to Norton creek Press for reprinting it.

This book is an excellent review of poultry genetics, a historical view. It is not up to date on current genetics however.
