I have read a lot of books about keeping chickens in the last year. This book has become one of my favorite to read, if not one of the most informative chicken books. If you are looking for a hard data reference, then this is probably not the best book for you. But if you want a sample of what it's like to keep chickens, along with plenty of useful information in a relaxed and chatty atmosphere, then this is it.
This book was published by the American Poultry Association, and includes a forward by the APA president. It was printed by a press in Connecticut, and I have to say that they did a fabulous job. The typesetting, the photographs, and the layout are all outstanding.
