Pros: info on many poultry species, good general info
Cons: not a complete guide to breeds
I knocked one star off this review because I believe the title to be incredibly misleading. This book is hardly a "Complete Guide to Poultry Breeds" but rather a general care guide for several poultry species (Chickens, Ducks, Geese, Peafowl, Quail, Turkeys, etc). The actual breed coverage is as good as most other general care guides. You will not find this to be a book that has lots of color photos of many different chicken breeds.
I knocked a half-star because I think it's a bit expensive compared to other similar books. It's black-and-white with mass-market quality paper.
The information inside seems to be good, and it's a good book if you are thinking about getting other species with your chickens. I originally wasn't too interested in ducks, geese, turkeys, etc. However, I'm ordering a barnyard surprise for this spring, so I might end up with some geese, ducks and/or trukeys, so the book will come in handy after all!
