Review: The Chicken Chick's Guide to Backyard Chickens

Little known fact here on the blog... I LOVE chickens.  I think chickens are just such interesting critters, and when I was young I used to tie them up and take them for walks.  :)   Go figure, I was a real farm girls.   This Guide to Backyard Chickens is a MUST HAVE if you are planning on raising chickens at all.   It is a thoroughly, helpful book.

 So what do you get with the Guide to Backyard Chickens?
12 chapters covering everything from why to keep chickens (honestly.. why not???) to their health, breeds, eggs, and more.  Ms. Mormino sets out to write a comprehensive guide to keeping and tending well a flock of backyard egg layers.   This book contains all you need to know about tending your hens as part of one of the fastest growing hobbies in North America today.
Oh, you know, it's really hard for me to decide which of the many pictures I took of this book to show you.  I don't want to inundate you.  :) Pictures of chickens (woot woot).

Or pictures of how well the text is balanced by pictures.
To the thoroughness with which she (the chicken chick) treats her subject.  Know your laws, keep the hens healthy, know what breeds suit your area and lifestyle, and just so much more.   I adored all the helpful and do it yourself hints found within the 180 pages of this tome.

 An extremely helpful volume that will be at your fingertips throughout your journey as a person keeping backyard chickens.  I know I'll be keeping it... cause who knows...maybe one day I will have a flock of my own.  :) (yes, it is still a dream)
 The Chicken Chick's Guide to Backyard Chickens: Simple steps for healthy, happy hens.

  1. I miss having chickens; I grew up with them but have never lived where it was practical to raise them. Maybe one day.
