From Permaculture Issue 52. This book is a beautifully illustrated and comprehensive guide for anyone thinking about keeping chickens. --Permaculture Issue 52

From Shooting Times & Country Magazine . You can t make an omelette without breaking some eggs. Nor, indeed can you enjoy a delicious roast chicken without wringing a few necks. You d be foolish to try either without first consulting Keeping Chickens, however, which is as invaluable a guide for the small flock aficionado as you re likely to find A perfect introduction to the delights of keeping chickens, no one investing in this easy-to-read book should have any fears about what they are getting themselves into. No guarantees ig you happen to be alektorphobic, though. --Shooting Times & Country Magazine
