9781843304142: Hen and the art of chicken maintenance

Owning chickens is becoming the latest in metropolitan chic, proving that you don't need to be a farmer to raise poultry. This book chronicles both the pleasures and the myriad pitfalls of chicken-keeping. Written from first-hand experience, this is a quirky introduction to the feather-clad soap opera primal urges, pecking order rituals, gender-bending and huge vet bills.
