How To Raise Chickens: Everything You Need To Know How To Raise Chickens: Everything You Need To Know available on November 11 2014 from Amazon for $12.74
This book covers pretty much everything about raising chickens on a small scale, down-to-earth level. It covers feeding, coop requirements, showing, basic breeds, nutritional requirements, needed equipment and raising day old chicks. I've read so many chicken raising books and most of them cover the same areas that this book does. Though, this book earns 5 stars because of the chapter on chicken medications. I really found this chapter very helpful. Whereas, most of the books I've read on chickens tell symptoms and what might be wrong; this book has the Antibiotic (ie Terramycin, Aureomycin or Sulmet) & other medications and then tells exactly which one should be used to treat what and what other common meds can be used for chickens.This colorful book is put together on glossy, flexible paper stock that will definitely survive repeated reading or referencing. The photo's are also very good. Even if you have other chicken raising guides, it's worth adding this one to your...

For much of 2006, Christine Heinrichs worked on this, her first full length book. As a matter of fact, I even had the opportunity to preview a chapter or two and give my input. I always knew Christine was an excellent writer; however, this book surpassed all my expectations. Truly, Christine has done a vital service for backyard poultry enthusiasts and in the process has made the SPPA proud by her contribution. The book carries the endorsement of the largest agricultural organization in the United States: the FFA. Primarily geared toward the beginner, it carries a wealth of valuable knowledge that makes it an excellent reference work for the mature poultry fancier as well. The first three chapters focus on the history of the domestication of the chicken and the various heritage breeds available for the enthusiast today. Christine's concentration is on pure bred fowl: specifically those breeds of fowl which are not composite in nature. She divides the presentation of the...
