The authors went through and clearly explained every aspect of raising chickens, from when you first purchase the cute little chicks to when they are no longer able to lay eggs. I really liked the way they explained everything in such a clear way, without making it seem overly complicated. They even explained the costs of chicks and then hen ownership.
Another concern I had about raising chickens was how they handle extreme weather. The authors live in very different climates so they were able to identify with the concerns of both hot and very cold days.
I was very happy to have found this book. I was on the fence about whether or not I could raise chickens and I feel much more confident about my abilities.
If you are looking for a book that will help you to truly understand the nuances of raising chickens, I suggest you read this book. It's a fairly quick read, that made me chuckle quite a few times! You will be quite happy you made this purchase.
Examples: "People unfamiliar with chicken keeping often ask, 'Do you need a rooster to get eggs?' The answer is no. That is sort of like asking a woman, “Do you need a man so that you can ovulate each month?” (Hee hee!) We ladies manage that all on our own, and so do the hens—almost every day."
Another example: "Remember that chickens are omnivores, so they also enjoy meat. Kelly’s hens LOVE it when she tosses leftover salmon out to them. However, she has never given them chicken. That seems wrong."
I had no idea truly fresh eggs could be so much better tasting and healthy than mass-produced, store-bought, Styrofoam packaged eggs. But my HOA will never be convinced by that argument. So I'm off to the store.
