    I have this book. I like that it shows you pictures of predator foot prints. I agree that it is pretty basic, but would be a less overwhelming book for beginners, rather than an inch thick chicken health book (i was scared to have chicken health books at first. I would hear of some illness and think, "Oh my gosh. Does my flock have that??!"). I recommend this book to beginners who don't need a lot of overwhelming facts, and that just need to start a flock and then move on to other things.
