By Paul

I know nothing about raising chickens, so was intrigued when I saw this new book.
You get a complete beginners guide to raising chickens.
From choosing the right type, feeding and welfare, through to installing suitable accommodation.
There's a very interesting section all about eggs..... never realized there was so much to understand!
All very useful information indeed.
Well worth reading for the complete beginner.

5.0 out of 5 stars raising chickens guide 4 May 2013
By OPV - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the one of the best guides about raising backyard chickens; very simple and detailed information. I used to raise my own chickens before I moved to the US, and now it's my dream to buy the property where I would raise them again, legally (right now I live in a home owners community that does not allow to raise any chickens). Although I already have some experience with raising chickens, in this book I found many important and new information. Recommended!

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't use chicken wire, in spite of what this book says! 15 May 2013
By Tim - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book contains some general advice for new chicken owners, but better advice can be found on the Internet on sites like backyardchickens.com. My biggest problem with this book is its repeated advice to use chicken wire fencing on your coop and run. Please do not EVER use chicken wire to protect your chickens nor in building their run. Racoon's, dogs and other predators can easily tear through chicken wire. Always use a combination of hardware cloth and either welded wire or chain-link fencing. Finally, when you write e-books, ALWAYS run spell check and have one or more friends proofread your work.

Great guide for total beginners. The "chicken behaviour" section was by far my favourite part of the book. I have been thinking about doing this for a long time and now feel a lot more prepared for the challenges ahead. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough and easy read for the beginner 19 May 2013
By AngieLisster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought this was a really comprehensive book for beginners, of which I am one, who want to get a few backyard chickens. The author covers everything from the different breeds of chickens, preparing to bring your chicks home, to care and feeding. There's information about the pecking order, preserving eggs, butchering and even neat tips such as mixing garlic husks with bedding to prevent lice and ticks. The one thing I would suggest is that you use something sturdier than conventional chicken wire for cages and runs. I've seen what a fox can do when it gets in the hen house and it isn't pretty.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Comprehensive Manual on Growing Your Own Chickens 6 May 2013
By Kathleen T Dillenbeck - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm a great fan of Stephanie Dayle, who speaks on Facebook a lot about raising chickens. I would love to raise chickens, but they don't allow them in my mobile home park. I have raised chickens in the past and wish I had read this book before I raised my chickens. I made so many mistakes. This book should keep you from doing that. Follow the suggestions in the book and soon you will be eating fresh eggs for breakfast and crispy chicken for dinner.
