    "Great basic book"
    Pros - Quick read, basic coop design
    Cons - Not in depth
    This is a great simple read for the backyard flock, filled with pictures, stories, facts, and even some cut lists and designs for things like chicken tractors and nesting boxes. Fun read with a lot of knowledge for the beginner.
