I'd like to start by saying I really like how the book was formatted. Interdispursed in each chapter are great side comments like her own chick diaries during the stage being talked about, or definitions of common lingo, or even short stories of her experiances. All while walking you thru all the basics up to getting your first eggs. Detailed enough to help you feel confident, while still directing you where to go to get more info if needed. For instance, she talks about the basics of what is needed in a coop, but lists other resources to go to to help you figure out whats best for your situation. It helps make the book a quick and enjoyable read as well as being informative.
