One of the best, if not the best guide to keeping chickens, with help on all aspects, including choosing a breed, and obtaining your chickens. There's a lot of help with everyday care, and special considerations when the seasons change. There's advice on keeping a journal, hygiene and housing, including parasite control, and protecting your chooks from predators. Tender hearted chicken keepers may want to skip the advice on cooking! Generally, there is a lot of detail, though perhaps not quite enough in the section on building chicken houses. Overall, this book is highly recommended.
