Description
 
Here is all the information you need to successfully raise chickens — from choosing breeds and hatching chicks to building coops, keeping the birds healthy, and protecting them from predators.

This revised third edition contains a new chapter on training chickens and understanding their intelligence, expanded coverage of hobby farming, and up-to-date information on chicken health issues, including avian influenza and fowl first aid.

About the Author:

Gail Damerow and her husband operate a family farm in Tennessee, where they keep poultry and dairy goats, tend a sizable garden, and maintain a small orchard. Damerow has written extensively on raising livestock and is a regular contributor to Backyard Poultry magazine.

Great informatioñ May 2, 2013
Reviewer: Cathryn Day from Herriman, UT United States  
We were looking into having chickens for the first time and wanted as much info as possible. This guide is great for what we wanted. However, it is a bit of a technical manual, so there were terms they used that we didn't quite understand.

Raising Chickens December 24, 2012
Reviewer: Tahni Strickland from Cocoa, FL United States  
This book was very thorough and informative, but photographs (or color illustrations instead of black and white) would have improved it.

The Chicken Bible May 13, 2012
Reviewer: Linda Dougherty from Republic, WA United States  
I am thrilled with my chicken bible.  Storey's information sources never cease to amaze me. It's been 30 years since I have raised chickens, and I fear not to try again, with this resource at hand.
