    Absolutely everything you need to win a chicken trivia contest. Just perfect to go with our urban chicken coop (and our fresh morning eggs). e.g. Light plays an essential role in the life of a chicken.

  • One dummie to another

    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.

    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!
