A practical guide to raising chickens, suitable for beginners and experts

In Raising Chickens, poultry breeder Suzie Baldwin offers a practical guide to everything both the beginner and more experienced hen owner needs to know, from whether to buy chicks or hens, what varieties to chose, how to tell if you're buying a healthy chicken and how to ensure it stays that way, to how many chickens you should keep, and what kind of coop is best. She also answers all the questions commonly posed by first-time owners, from whether you need to have a cockerel, whether chickens ever fly away and how quickly they will start laying, to how to prevent them being attacked by foxes and what to do when they become unwell.

"For the beginner it has all that is required to make a good start, and for the experienced keeper it covers a lot [...] that will add to their hobby."

"It's a great book for any first-time hen-keeper."
