Excellent beginner guide for raising chickens...

Excellent guide for those that want to start raising backyard chickens. There is some basic information here, but also a ton of info that was new to me. Great tips on how to select the right chicken breed, and if you should buy or build your own coop. I really like the flow of this book. It’s not just a technical overview of what you need to know to raise chickens. Quite the contrary: it’s almost like having a conversation, including a few tongue in cheek jokes. I mean, have you ever heard of a ‘henopause’? I laughed a couple of times. Highly recommend!

Liked this one the best, ready to raise my flock.

At the start of this year, I began battling a particularly crafty and smart weasel. I lost almost my entire flock…So next year I am starting over. To make sure I’m starting off on the right foot with my new flock, I have checked out a number of books on backyard chickens. This one has to be my favorite so far. Can definitely tell that Rhea Margrave has personal experience with raising chickens. I especially appreciate the extensive chapter on protecting my chicks against different predators.
