    "One of the better chicken books on the market."
    The general information of this book was better than many other beginner chicken-keeping books I've found. It still contains some misinformation on points like EE vs Ameraucana, but it's not a bad choice if you know nothing about chickens and wish to get started. Good breeding information.

    "Good Beginners Book"
    Pros - Good Pictures
    Cons - Basic
    This is a good book for beginners, but doesn't go into much detail.
