I own a small hatchery and poultry farm. We sell hundreds of baby chicks every month. When someone with little or no poultry experience asks for some good reference material for their new chicks, I point them to this book. Will Graves covers every aspect of raising poultry in great detail, but does not bore his reader. This book is also a great reference item for the current poultry owner. If I have a question, I turn to Mr. Graves first. I highly recommend this book.

This is a nice, easy to read beginner book on raising poultry for meat and eggs in three parts: chickens, ducks and geese. It discusses different breeds, where to buy your poultry, egg incubation, housing requirements, feeding, watering, brooding management, as well as butchering and preparation for freezing. It is greatly recommended if you want to raise your own poultry or eggs.

My four Rhode Island Reds are my first ever to care for and this book helped me to quickly know what to do without having to take a college course. It is helpful in building of and requirements of a coop, requirements for the growing chick into adulthood (food, lighting, temperature, water, protection and cleanliness.)I highly recommend this book and also bought one for a christmas present for an owner of a small flock.Plus there is much more information like, illness& diseases, butchering, ducks, turkeys, and incubation.

This is one of the books I have followed to successfully raise and process free range poultry for human and cat consumption - as well as give proper care to my pet chickens, ducks and geese for many years.

I've only had chickens for a year and a half now, so I'm still new at this. I bought this book used -- it was a well-thumbed library book and in the exact condition described by the bookseller. While the more technical Storey's Guide to Raising Poultry is excellent, I find that I reach for this particular book more often -- easier to read and understand and to quickly find an answer. Lots of down-to-earth, common-sense tips and suggestions. In my research, it was highly recommended and I agree -- it's a really good book for someone just starting out.

I bought this book here and from the used section. I was really pleased with the quality of the information. I've raised poultry in the past and already know a lot about it but I was still able to find information I didn't know. I found this book well written and easy to understand. If you want to raise poultry then I would highly recommend that you get this book, I have a feeling it will be you're go to book if you have any questions.
