But not extraordinarily informative. Also the charts for breeds in the nook version doesn't enlarge so you can't read it.

It was very clear and easy to read. Also, it was full of lots of practical information organized in a clear, and easy to understand fashion. Full of photos printed on semi-glossy paper. The best book on the subject in my opinion, at least for a beginner.

This is a good book, but does not have as detailed information as 'Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens.' The color pictures are beautiful. I'd get it simply for the pictures. It's a good starter book because it's not too much information. After you read it you will know enough to idenfify the details you will probably want to find elsewhere.
