Could anyone recommend a bog-standard informative book with all the basics of feeding, etc in it. I have one but it's more of a coffee-table book with lots of lovely pics of hens I haven't got and short on the things I actually want to know.
Storey's Guid to Raising Chickenswritten by Gail Damerow ISBN 978-1-60342-469-1. This covers everything in great detail and is the only book you should ever need.
Thanks, Chris. There are several used on Amazon and eBay so I'll look for a good deal. I can't believe I just said that - Brexit must be getting to me!
We have that book and it is excellent. contains all you need, you will find it useful
Or just look at past threads on here?
We like to be bothered!
Bother away we like to feel useful
At lest all our cumulative experience is hard-won through making lots of mistakes and suffering various disasters. Chicken keeping books always seem to make it look so simple, clean and tidy! (Like the advertisements for Omlet coops, set out on an immaculate lawn with a couple of hens plonked down there for the first time, when 24 hours later the grass would have been scratched up and disappeared.)
