I started taking notes of things I wanted to remember. After having a full page of notes after just getting to page 64 I decided it would be worth it just to buy the book.
I haven't come across any information yet that I don't feel is relevant to me (have only 6 chickens), but if and when I do, the overwhelming amount of very useful tips and techniques I've already taken from book will cause any superfluous information to be a minor point, not even worth considering.
I highly recommend this book.

Read it with intention that if you intend to expand your flock. This book is for you. It does stay away from pushing the go all organic idea. For myself that just is not as practical idea as some might think. But I would urge you to buy and jeep it handy as it does contain knowledge you will find handy down the road.
I do have this on my kindle, but am old fashion. The physical book allows me to walk out in to my back yard put it down with out worrying if moisture is about to destroy a $200+ USD piece of electronics.. LOL
If you are interested in keeping chickens for food, eggs or just fun this book is for you. It is a must have in a Farmsteader or Homesteaders resource library. Mrs. Damerow covers it all well, I really like that there are pictures, charts and graphs covering a lot of the more difficult aspects of chicken keeping.
