Chicken Health For Dummies

Good Book, Nice Bonuses

NorthFLChick

Pros: Easy to read, good basic info

Cons: Some details missing

This is a very good basic, intro to keeping chickens healthy. It was easy to read and makes a good reference book, especially for those fairly new to chickens.   I knew it was not terribly in-depth when I purchased it so I wasn't surprised that some details were missing.

A Chicken in Every Yard: The Urban Farm Store's Guide to Chicken Keeping

A Chicken in Every Yard: The Urban Farm Store's Guide to Chicken Keeping

“Covers everything for coops to chicks to breeds to egg recipes to flock management. Easy to read with beautiful graphics and an attractive hard cover design allows doesn't allow it to look out of place of your living room coffee table or book shelf. Doesn't do a good job covering showing and all that, so I don't recommend it as a guide for 4-H'ers or people who wish to show chickens or for...” --PluckyClucker99

Chick Days: An Absolute Beginner's Guide to Raising Chickens from Hatching to Laying

“This is the best chicken book I have ever read! I researched chickens for three years+ before getting mine, and of all of the articles and books I've read this one takes the cake. Some people (not to point fingers) are complaining that they did't learn from the book, but keep in mind that this book is supposed to be simple. It's supposed to give people the basics. I learned almost everything I...” --TheBantyCoop

Chicken and Egg pb: A Memoir of Suburban Homesteading with 125 Recipes

“ This book was a great read, and, instead of giving a long, complicated description of why I liked it, here are some bullet points.   1) It was easy to read, the words flowed smoothly together. 2) The pictures were great, and often showed the chick maturing into an adult. (Or an adult of the same breed) 3) Gave informative information on the history of the chicken. (Did you know...” --Eggnog101
