RAISING CHICKENS

Now updated and redesigned, it includes details on shelter, food, health care, eggs, chicks and meat – basically, all you need to know. It also explores recent research into chicken behaviour and communication. With new colour photos and illustrations, this is packed with information for wannabe and established chicken keepers alike.
