    Great beginners guide

    I've enjoyed reading this book and using it as a reference. I am new to having chickens in my backyard and have found this book to be an easy to read, handy resource as a quick reference. It is a great starter book that answers general questions.

    Do you REALLY want chickens in your backyard?

    This is a great book to help you decide if you want to raise chickens on a small scale, and it could easily be the only book you need. It is easy to read and illustrated with nice b&w line drawings. It was written in the 70's and has not been updated except for a new cover photo of a girl holding a hen, but chickens haven't changed much.

    Other books:
    For colorful photos and more ideas, try Keeping Chickens by Jeremy Hobson and Celia Lewis. This gives a more British/European view and is easier for kids to read.
    For more than you ever wanted to know about what can go wrong, try The Chicken Health Handbook by Gail Damerow.
    For in-depth chicken instruction, try Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens, also by Gail Damerow.

    GREAT BASIC BOOK

    A Great read for anyone considering raising chickens or even just interested in chicken basics. Contains a glossary of basic chicken terms, some plans for coops, information on chicks, eggs, meat, diseases and a lot more. Well written and organized with plenty of humor thrown in. A fun read!

    Fun and educational

    This is a great book. The humor is a nice way to introduce the topic. I might wait until I can convince my wife that I will be responsible for the chickens :). The authors cover the whole gamut. My thanks to them for making the read informative and exciting. I read the whole book in just one day.
