Reviews about Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens, 3rd Edition (7):

Some months ago I read a review that said that this book was written for those with large flocks...not really practical for the backyard chicken owner. Because of that review I decided not to purchase the book. But when I saw it in my local library I checked it out.

I started taking notes of things I wanted to remember. After having a full page of notes after just getting to page 64 I decided it would be worth it just to buy the book.

I haven't come across any information yet that I don't feel is relevant to me (have only 6 chickens), but if and when I do, the overwhelming amount of very useful tips and techniques I've already taken from book will cause any superfluous information to be a minor point, not even worth considering.

I highly recommend this book.

Very thorough! Covers the most important things you need to know about raising chickens from egg to putting meat on the table. (Unless you want to keep chickens solely as pets) I can see myself returning to this book to use for reference or sharing with friends! Covers things like breeds, bird size, egg size, how to start chicks and the times and seasons that are perfect for raising chickens and also goes over symptoms for illnesses, even in the end it shows how to process or dress your chickens for food! I feel like this book has everything a beginner like me would need.

Every chicken keeper should have a copy of this book handy. If I have a problem with one of my chickens, chances are this well-written and well-organized book will have an easy-to-find chapter with just the info I need!

My family and I have recently started raising chickens. I have been looking for a book for some time. Something with just the information we need. We just plan to have a small flock, of less than a dozen or so, to raise for eggs and meat. Most of the information in this book seems to be geared towards raising a small flock. There is some info about larger flocks. It is full of very useful information. It explains everything from how to heal wounded chickens yourself to how to select a chicken for butchering. It also has info on how to make your own feeders and waterers so that you don't have to purchase them. I was very impressed with this book and intend to purchase more of Storey's books as we decide to expand on our self sufficiency. Whether you're raising in your backyard or you have a barn and pasture, I recommend this book for anyone just starting out with chickens.

While it is geared towards a larger keepers. It still a good place to get information in regards to keeping chickens. For my self i am just starting with a few hens. the wife is already pushing for a rooster and expanding the flock.

Read it with intention that if you intend to expand your flock. This book is for you. It does stay away from pushing the go all organic idea. For myself that just is not as practical idea as some might think. But I would urge you to buy and jeep it handy as it does contain knowledge you will find handy down the road.

I do have this on my kindle, but am old fashion. The physical book allows me to walk out in to my back yard put it down with out worrying if moisture is about to destroy a $200+ USD piece of electronics.. LOL

Packed with helpful information and a great resource for keeping chickens. A must if you a new to raising chickens for eggs or meat. I have kept chickens for years and still learned some valuable information to make my life even easier and my chickens happier.

If there is anything and I mean anything you ever wanted to know about chickens this book has it. A super comprehensive book on all things chicken. We got this book before our chickens and we are still referring to it when we have a chicken related question. It is a great resource but you must keep in mind they cover everything, from hatching to slaughtering and everything in between.
If you are interested in keeping chickens for food, eggs or just fun this book is for you. It is a must have in a Farmsteader or Homesteaders resource library. Mrs. Damerow covers it all well, I really like that there are pictures, charts and graphs covering a lot of the more difficult aspects of chicken keeping.
This book has a wealth of good information but it is missing one thing, color! This is the newest edition in hardcover printed in 2010 but you would think they could use color illistrations and color pictures of the breeds they are discussing. Instead, they use what look to be pencil sketches of the chickens. I know color pics of each breed both chicks and mature birds are available because you can find them all online if you do a search.
