From Booklist:

Once you've decided which chickens you'd like to keep, how do you go about caring for them? Poultry keepers Hobson and Lewis have produced a nice introduction to backyard chicken keeping. In 11 chapters they consider all aspects of chicken care and maintenance. The authors first look at understanding chickens and what to consider before adding them to the family, followed by choosing a breed (with breed descriptions) and obtaining stock. Chicken care is covered in a chapter on housing and cleaning and one on how to feed your new acquisitions. All you ever wanted to know about eggs, breeding information, and health care fill a section each, with egg crafts and egg recipes completing the text. Delightfully illustrated with pastoral photographs of contented chickens and lovely small watercolors, this British import is a good basic start to chicken keeping Bent, Nancy
