Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When you need fresh eggs, nothing is healthier or more convenient than collecting them, courtesy of your own happy home-bred hens. Keeping two or three chickens is easier than you think. They don't require much special equipment, and today's compact chicken houses are designed to fit even the smallest spaces--from small backyards to apartment terraces.

If you're ready to make chickens a part of your household, this new, updated edition of Keeping Pet Chickens will give you the essential information you need for success. Instructive captioned illustrations and down-to-earth language show prospective chicken owners exactly how to master every aspect of keeping and raising healthy and productive poultry, including:

  • Selecting a breed
  • Catching and handling hens
  • Basic chicken biology
  • Helpful tips and hints for care
  • Maintaining health, and more

    This new enlarged edition features an increased number of breed profiles.

  • Synopsis:

    When you're looking for fresh eggs, what could be better than going out to your backyard and collecting them, courtesy of your own home-bred chickens? Food doesn't come any fresher, and the good news is that the new, updated edition of Keeping Pet Chickens shows you how easy it is to keep two or three thriving chickens on your property. They don't require farmland, and today's modern, widely available chicken houses are designed so that anyone with even a little backyard or terrace space can keep poultry. But owners still need some essential "must-know" information, which they'll find right away in this easy-to-understand book. The book's instructive captioned illustrations show prospective chicken owners exactly how to master every aspect of keeping and raising healthy and productive poultry. The book is filled with instructive color photos.
