4.0 out of 5 stars Informative and interesting book.
I found this book both helpful and interesting, not too indepth to be boring but useful. There are sections on buying/housing/caring for/breeding and exhibiting poultry; plus a large section on different breeds.
I gave this book a 4 not a 5 because it deals mainly with Chickens (about 3/4 of the book) and perhaps I would have liked a bit more in the Ducks/Geese and...

I returned this book, because although ducks feature in the title, there is very little information on keeping ducks in the book - just handful of pages that don't cover the basic care required.
If you are wanting to keep chickens, this would probably suit you. The book is all about chickens,

I found this book both helpful and interesting, not too indepth to be boring but useful. There are sections on buying/housing/caring for/breeding and exhibiting poultry; plus a large section on different breeds.
I gave this book a 4 not a 5 because it deals mainly with Chickens (about 3/4 of the book) and perhaps I would have liked a bit more in the Ducks/Geese and Turkey section; I thought that part was a bit too brief - a basic introduction to the subject.
Recommended for the serious beginner. It would make a nice gift - hardback with dust jacket, full colour throughout and well presented.

What a super present for my friend - he now reads it to his chickens and one wonders if he is feathered brained now.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last a book with everything to do with chickens!, 2 Aug. 2014

Excellent beginners book with loads of tips and information on the wellbeing/housing/care of chickens (which is what I bought it for), can't comment on the ducks, geese and turkey sections, as the book is mainly about chicken keeping but if those sections are as informative as the chicken section it would be worth getting. I would certainly recommend it.
