    More and more Americans are becoming concerned about living a healthier and more environmentally friendly lifestyle.Whether it’s moving to the country and starting over on a whim or just making city- living a little simpler and easier, the “Green” movement is changing the way we live our day- to-day lives. Skyhorse's Self-Sufficiency handbooks are meant to help—offering advice on what to do, how to do it better, and how to save money as well. This is a beautifully illustrated series made even more beautiful, because its goal is to help everyone live in a more earth-friendly fashion. This handbook provides an introduction to some of the key aspects of raising chickens. You don’t need a large space to raise and keep chickens, and most families find that they only need a couple of hens to keep them stocked with fresh eggs year-round. Packed full of information on the basic housing costs and requirements, food and water requirements, disease prevention, and breeding—this book also includes a comprehensive section on the breeds available, their specific requirements, and a list of resources. 100 color illustrations

    "Short read"
    Pros - A lot of information in a little space
    Cons - Information. Not as detailed
    I was glad to read this book, but the pictures aren't real photography and are limited. Great chart of egg production over a year in the back...not bad, but okay.
