All the basics (and beyond!) for raising happy, healthy chickens.
In cities, suburbs, and everywhere in between, a classic American tradition is back in a big way-raising backyard chickens for eggs, meat, fun, or profit. Chickens in Your Backyard has been the go-to guide for chicken care for more than 40 years.
This revised and updated edition combines all the classic techniques with the most up-to-date information-from incubating, raising, housing, and feeding, to treating disease and raising chickens for show. Chickens in Your Backyard provides everything you need to know to turn your backyard into a happy homestead.
