I've raised a lot of farm animals. I've even hatched my own chicks and raised them. I've been doing a lot of reading up on the topic because I plan to do so again at the new place we are just moving into...

...but this is THE BEST book I have EVER read on the topic of hatching and brooding your own fowl. It covers all sorts, chickens and waterfowl, game birds... it is the most realistic and honest, straightforward... if you only read ONE book on the topic, this would be IT.

This would be THE go-to

This book was a good general overview of hatching your own eggs. I throughly enjoyed the diagrams and progression showing a chick from embryo to hatch. Unfortunately this book was just a general overview and most indepth questions I had were best answered through websites like backyard chickens or friends who have far more knowledge than myself. I am glad I loaned this from the library before purchasing it for my personal library as it is not a book I will be adding to my resource shelf anytime ...more

I didn't like this book. the author may or may not know about chickens but she doesn't seem to know much about ducks and really shouldn't be writing about ducks. I don't know if my comments I made will show up publicly but I found a few statements she made that are not good to follow. I am glad I didn't read this book while learning what to do and what not to do bc I would have made mistakes with ducks or been misinformed at the very least. to be fair, the main focus is chickens and ducks are ...more

This book was full of information. But a lot of basic terms went undefined, and i had to read this with my ipad at my side, to look up words. As well, only themost expensive, new materials options were given, leaving one with the impression that to raise a few backyard chickens would be thousands of dollars and man hours of work. There are better guides for beginners, but a seasoned farmer might find this useful for its specialized information.

This was the best book out there about raising baby poultry. I learned all I know about chicks from this amazing book. Easy read and trains you in the skill of raising baby poultry.
