    This book was useful, informative and light entertainment. One down side... It seemed to be very repetitive at times. Same info over and over. Repeating the statement from the last chapter. Saying the same thing with a little change in words. ( See what I mean?) Most definitely a book for beginners. Thus the title for dummies.

    Bought this as a present for a relatively new chicken owner. It was a choice between this and a book by the Storey publishing company on chickens. I chose this and the chicken owner was very happy with it and found several things to immediately make improvements on her chicken coop. If I ever get my property suitable for chickens (need to take down trees for adequate sun, etc), I will certainly add this book to my library!
