Excellent, easy to read introduction.,
This review is from: Starting with Ducks (Paperback)
Anyone who keeps ducks, or fancies keeping ducks in the future, will find this book extremely useful.
I have bought some of Katie Thear's other books, and this is very much in the same mould - a friendly, knowledgeable person explaining things in an easy to understand, non-patronising way.
She covers virtually every aspect the casual duck owner could ever want - what to feed them, where to keep them, what various ailments are and what you can do etc etc. It also touches on details that one might need if they were wanting to take it more seriously, for example, egg incubation. It doesn't go into loads and loads of detail on things like this, but it was enough for me to successfully get into egg incubating, and since keeping ducks I haven't had any problems, and that's primarily using this book as my bible.
If you want serious detail and a bit more science and specialist advice, there are other books for you. But I guarantee this book covers everything you'd ever need to know to keep a few ducks fit and healthy. There are other similar books, but I, and most other people I have spoken to, agree that Thear writes in the best possible style for a book like this.
Look no further, this book is fantastic value for money!
