The Complete Idiot’s Guide®
to Raising Chickens

By Jerome D. Belanger

The Complete Idiot's Guide®<br> to Raising Chickens by Jerome D. Belanger

You’re no idiot, of course. You know there’s nothing like the taste of fresh, free-range eggs from chickens you’ve raised yourself, but you’re wondering if owning your own flock of birds would be all it’s cracked up to be.

In this Complete Idiot’s Guide you’ll find advice on locating and buying your first chickens; tips for buying or building the right coop; learn all about eggs from conception to collecting to cooking; understand why roosters—and some hens—crow; learn to identify normal behavior in healthy chickens and what to do when something goes wrong, and decide for yourself if raising chickens organically is right for you.

As a first-time flock owner, you have questions. The answers are in this book.
