The book’s organization is particularly helpful, with each chapter logically building upon the previous one.
This allows for easy access to specific information, regardless of my current needs. Whether troubleshooting a new problem or simply refreshing my memory on a familiar topic, finding the relevant information is always a breeze.

The inclusion of helpful illustrations and diagrams further enhances the learning experience, making complex concepts easier to grasp and visualize.
Along with the illustrations and diagrams, Gail Damerow includes many charts, in-page highlighted bonus content, and tables to answer almost any question you have.

This ensures I’m always equipped with the latest knowledge to provide my chickens with the best possible care.
Let’s peek Inside
The Preface takes a quick trip through the history and diversity of chickens and their relation to us humans.
Then, the table of contents shows us how to choose a breed, what birds have what kind of disposition, schools us on shelter, management, healthcare, hatching chicks and so on, hitting everything you would expect in a comprehensive guide, but that’s not all.
The final three chapters of which there are 14 in all show us how to exhibit showbirds and manage meat birds, including how to butcher, cut, and store a chicken.
