This book, the latest innovative Haynes Manual, will provide a complete and easy-to-understand reference for the growing band of people wishing to keep their own chickens for both food and pleasure. Pitched at the novice but also containing plenty to interest the experienced chicken-keeper, the book will contain no-nonsense advice, tips, facts and step-by step sequences, as well as plenty of relevant photographs and diagrams. As more people keep chickens nowadays than at any time since the Second World War, this book is a timely addition to the Haynes range.

Great pictures and a great book for information for any one starting out in poultry.
Gives you details of everything you need to know even plans to build you own coop. The lot is covered from breeding to health care to what your eggs should be like.
All the basics are there on care and feeding even what you need in your first aid kit. I will be recommending this book to all the people who buy chickens from me as a great start up book.
