If you can identify with any of these questions, one book you should consider reading is Storey’s Guide to Raising Chickens by Gail Damerow. This guide can be an incredible help right from the start, but it can also help you with troubleshooting later on.
- Buying chickens.
- First aid.
- Egg production problems.
- Breeding chickens.
- Raising chicks.
- Raising meat birds.
And this is just the beginning!
Although there may be times when you would want to delve deeper into a specific topic, such as the particulars of building a coop or solving a health problem, Storey’s Guide to Raising Chickens is a handy resource to have on your shelf. It covers all of the basics in an easy-to-understand manner.
A good starting point, but equally handy for answering questions later on. Highly recommended!
