This may well be the most complete guide available on the market today on how to raise and care for chickens. The new, third edition of Gail Damerow's bestselling classic covers virtually everything you'd possibly want to know about selecting a breed, creating the perfect shelter, routine fowl management, and health care.

There are informative chapters here on laying hens, eggs for eating versus breeding, hatching eggs, and chick care. If you'd like advice on exhibiting your chickens, there's plenty of material covering fowl show preparation and display.

Revised and updated, the guide also includes feeder and coop designs, a section on fowl disease such as avian influenza, expanded details on coping with predators, and new information on how to train your chicken, plus how to fathom fowl behavior!

As an added bonus you'll also find the book features a helpful glossary of terms, plus plenty of illustrations and photos. You'll discover raising chickens is a snap with this easy to use reference at your fingertips.
