    Storey's Guide to Raising Poultry is the only book you need to naturally and humanely raise a wide range of poultry, from chickens and turkeys to waterfowl and game birds -- even uncommon species, such as pigeons, emus, doves, ostriches, peafowl, and swans. Whether you’re running a farm or raising a few birds in the backyard, Glenn Drowns tells you everything you need to know about breed selection, housing, space requirements, behavior, breeding, hatching, feeding, health care, and the business of processing meat and eggs. This revised edition includes new and updated information on health and disease, raising birds on pasture, growing your own feed, housing, breeding, slaughtering, and marketing.

    "Storey's guide to Raising Poultry"
    Pros - Informitive, covers everything from chickens for meat and eggs to ratites, from waterfowl to pigeons
    Cons - There's always room for improvement
    Glenn Drowns has been known for his excellence in the turkey industry and everything else chicken. Normally poultry is just chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, and guinea's but this book opens up to ratites (such as emus.) pigeons, quail and pheasants. When I looked through the book I could barely find anything wrong with the book and I recommend anyone who wants to go past the chicken world, this is the book for you
