What People are Saying
This book provides lots of good information for someone who is considering raising chickens. As someone who has raised my own chickens, I used this book more as a refresher course since I already knew much of what the author discussed. I think this would be an excellent resource especially for someone who was new to the idea of raising their own chickens.
This book was a concise easy read while still providing all the pertinent information a beginner would require. I also really appreciated that it was very honest about some of the challenges. For anyone interested in raising chickens, you will not regret reading this book. ~ R.C.
