I have bought or been given every one of the RC series to date and as a relatively new hen keeper (we have a small mixed flock of hybrids bought as point of lay a couple of years ago) I was keen to add this title to my collection. It's well written, doesn't patronise nor assume knowledge a newbie probably wouldn't possess. It covers a lot of ground quickly, and would be a superb gift for anyone thinking about acquiring their first chucks. What I would have liked is a little more coverage on different breeds and perhaps some more illustrations of DIY henhouses ... our very expensive kit house is falling to bits and we want to build a new one before winter, so I was hoping for some ideas ... but these are minor issues. The recipes look fantastic, whether egg based or meat based, although I really cannot imagine us keeping hens for meat, we get much too attached to the ones we keep for eggs. Having said that, I did appreciate the section on how to kill a hens humanely ... if you keep hens you may well have to deal with a sick or injured bird quickly. I wish this book had been out a few years ago, but better late than never!

Before getting my 4 Orpington hens earlier this year I invested in several chicken books/manuals and I can honestly say this is the best one. I know it's not to everyone's taste but I was particular interested in the dispatching chapter, this is something that everyone who is considering breeding chickens should consider in depth.

We bought this book when we first got our chickens because we trust the River cottage series and needed some guidelines. (Also, the other chicken-keeping books we found all seemed to be American which wasn't all that helpful.) We have found the book very useful and helpful. An excellent addition to the RC range. Now we need one on ducks :-)

I have several River Cottage Handbooks and this one doesn't let the side down! Informative at a really easy to understand level - we are new to chicken keeping and I wanted a good reference point and this certainly fits the bill (or should I say beak??!)

Mark's passion for these feathery friends comes across really well and apart from anything else, it's as really good read! It covers starting up, feeding, breading, despatch and recipes.

Would definitely recommend.

Another River Cottage great buy this one on Chickens. I am new to keeping chickens (not purchased yet) but wanted to do appropriate research first and this book is excellent for every aspect of keeping chickens. A superb informative read that I am really enjoying. Chickens are on order today.

GREAT. I have a number of River Cottage Books. As I have just got 4 chickens this book just tells you straight. Mark ( if I may be so bold ) says and does as he says. There is no beating about the bush and the book is devided up in such a way to make reading it easy.

If you keep chickens like we do you always have a few questions on keeping them, rather than trawling through many web sites to find the answer. They are all here in one book. Excellent and witty writing to keep the facts real.

This book was a joy to read and very informative dealing with all aspects of keeping chickens including their 'despatch'. It also has an excellent recipe section. I would recommend this book to both the beginners and the 'not-so-beginners'.
