Can Anyone recommend a good book for a Novice

Recommended Posts

Hi, My new chooks are due to arrive on the 7th Feb, and I've been reading as many posts as possible to make sure I'm up to speed - but can anyone recommend a good overall 'how to look after your chicken' book that I could have as reference when not online ? There seem to be dozens available, but am looking for a novice/ general entry level book. Thanks again.

"Keeping Pet Chickens" written by the Omlet folk, is great. It's a good all round introduction. I actually got it out from the library. They had just bought a brand new copy after having so many requests for it.


I've also got "Choosing and Keeping Chickens" by Chris Graham. This is the Practical Poultry magazine editor. It's also got really good all round advice plus lovely pictures of 50 or so pure breed chickens (and a little bit about hybrids). I would recomend it. You can buy it on Amazon.
