Very helpful book for someone wanting to sell, breed or butcher chickens. There is a lot of information on space requirements, coop design, feeding your flock, breeding and some information on diseases. There really isn't too much information on the various different breeds and only a chapter on raising baby chicks. I prefer Sue Weaver's Chicken book for information on raising baby chicks and information on the breeds. The reading in this book can get dry at times. It has little to no illustrations of any of the breeds. Overall, this is a good book and excellent for covering a little in each area of raising chickens.

Excellent introduction to caring for poultry. If you are considering raising a small or large flock, you need this book!
