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 collection.
