    Originally published on my blog Nonstop Reader How to Raise Chickens Everything You Need to Know is an updated re release of a guide from 2007 for the FFA Reformatted and updated, this edition was released 8th Jan 2019 by Quarto on their Voyageur imprint It s 216 pages and available in ebook and paperback formats.The FFA textbooks and guides have always been high quality and sensibly written in my opinion Between them and the Storey s publications, folks wanting to increase their food security and independence have a rich selection of good guidance at their fingertips.This book on chickens covers literally everything I could think of to ask We ve had a home flock for years and even looking through my garden journals and notes, I couldn t find any problems we ve encountered which weren t discussed in this guide.There s a lot of information here Happily, it s very logically divided and there s a complete cross referenced index There s also a resource list slanted toward North America with some online resources.Well written, no nonsense, scientifically accurate, and complete, this is a really solid resource for both beginner and experienced keepers.Five stars.Disclosure I received an ARC at no cost from the author publisher for review purposes.

    This might not be as flashy as some of the books on backyard chickens, nor may it have as cool pictures, but I have to say I never seen such a thorough book on everything, and I do mean everything you would need to know.It also goes into great detail abouat the breeding, and how there are currently some rare breeds, that people are getting just to the fun of it.There was a cute page on all the phrases we use everyday There was also the coolest thing I have seen about having lights in coops so that chickens lay int he winter The author says, well,yes you can do that, but remember that all chickens are born with as many eggs as they will ever have, and if you make them give them all up when they are young, you will miss out on the larger ones they will lay as they get older.The guide I practice, if a little dull But, a good reference guide.Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review.

    This book is not for the faint at heart There is a lot of meaty detail here If you are looking for a practical, step by step guide for raising a small group of chicken in your suburban backyard, I would say that this book is than you need It s fascinating, thorough, and complete but it is a lot of information that I think the average backyard coop keeper does not need desire There is a brief history of chickens, including breeding, culture, and art There are details on the specific classifications and breeds The origins of chickens are quite fascinating but there are a lot of chickens from a lot of different places There is an entire chapter on selection, breeding, and culling And yet another chapter on showing both eggs and chickens All of this is followed by a chapter on health and addresses diseases as well as parasites.This review is part of a blog post received an advance copy from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    As a novice with very little knowledge of raising chickens, I was looking for information that would help me keep from making expensive mistakes, This one fills the bill My husband and I decided we wanted to have a small flock of chickens, no than 10 We did not want to waste our time and money by not gathering some information first We found that just talking to neighbors with chickens did not give us enough information to start When I saw this book was endorsed by the FFA, I was impressed enough to start reading I m really glad I did From start up to established practices, the book gives you clear and easy to understand guidance that will help you succeed I m very glad I read this book before I ran out and just started buying what I thought I needed It s a great reference book for chicken owners I m sharing my new found knowledge with all of the old timers now.
