Personally, I like this book better than "Storey's Raising Chickens". It has just as much information on raising baby chicks as the Raising Chickens guide. Leonard Mercia covers raising all poultry quite well in this guide. Good for any novice of poultry.

In 352 pages, Mr. Mercia covers chickens, turkeys, ducks and guineas all quite throughly. Plus, he writes in a straight and concise manner without being textbooky and boring. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone no matter what poultry they were raising. He covers poultry for profit and butchering how-to, briefly as well.

The only drawbacks I can see with this book is it's in black and white, with only line drawings. Also, only a few breeds of poultry are covered, so I'd pair this with the "Storey's Poultry Illustrated Poultry book" by Carol Ekarius if you haven't picked out your poultry breed yet. Solid 4 stars.
