A "How To" written by people who know how

This book is a simple all inclusive book on raising your own chickens. It takes everything you need to know and puts it in one place and keeps it easy to understand. You can tell by reading that it was written by people who love chickens and want to share the enjoyment with others. I did a lot of looking online, but this was the only guide that I was convinced that I needed to buy, and I'm glad that I did.
If you're looking to start your own chicken family, then this book is a must have!
Don't forget to check out backyardchickens.com while you're at it.

I have read most of this book and I have found some parts that state some incorrect facts that could harm a first time chicken raiser. Such facts that I found was that they stated several times that you raise the fast growing broilers for 15 weeks when they are in fact only supposed to be raised for 6-8 and you would have lots of losses from this. Even though I have only had chickens for under a year I know this and all of the hatcheries state this so this is a big error.
