    A must read for beginner; or pro-review

    This book is the most comprehensive and easy to read book on the subject of poultry I have found. In fact, i checked it out of the library so often I finally gave in and bought it. It includes a range of info from bird biology, on-line sources and how-to drawings for building nests and incubators, for example. An excellent place to start or go for refresher info.
