Synopsis:

Keeping Chickens, 2nd Edition is the perfect introduction to small flock poultry keeping. Not only are chickens useful (as both a food source and as consumers of weeds in the yard), but they are interesting and colorful creatures that make good pets and can enliven any garden. The book covers everything potential chicken farmers need to know about housing, feeding and welfare, plus it includes a section full of great egg recipes. Lively, authoritative text and a gorgeous gallery of chicken images make this book appealing to both casual and avid chicken enthusiasts.
