I need a good chicken book

corrie22March 23, 2010

I'm looking for a good book on raising chickens.

I'd like one that covers different breeds, health, feeding, housing, the whole thing.

Before we move and I jump into some hens, I think I better read up on it! LOL

Thanks guys, cheer up this winter has to eventually be over!

i like Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens. Seems everything a person might need to know to get started is in that book. ALl of their books are pretty good.

I agree, that's the best chicken book I've read.
