Sue Baker's view...

I wish I’d had this manual to hand when I first started keeping chickens, it combines all you need to know, a good all-round guide with informative and well-chosen illustrations. There’s lots of information here that’s hard to find elsewhere - and better presented too, the health section in particular - but I also liked the month-by-month guide to the chicken year and the easy to follow instructions on despatching and dressing hens is really easy to follow.

Synopsis

Chicken Manual - The Complete Step-by-step Guide to Keeping Chickens by Laurence Beeken

This book, the latest innovative Haynes Manual , will provide a complete and easy-to-understand reference for the growing band of people wishing to keep their own chickens for both food and pleasure. Pitched at the novice but also containing plenty to interest the experienced chicken-keeper, the book will contain no-nonsense advice, tips, facts and step-by step sequences, as well as plenty of relevant photographs and diagrams. As more people keep chickens nowadays than at any time since the Second World War, this book is a timely addition to the Haynes range.
