Just ordered this from my state wide library program.Kelly is a good friend of mine and his book is informative, in depth and in a very readable format.
None taken. There are an amazing number of books on chickens out there. I think some of the information is marginal at best - but at least it gets people started. Better than no info at all.
I thought a friend or relative of yours wrote this?A BYC member wrote this book. It has a lot of good information.
Is that accessible as a Canadian. Ive looked online for different books buy u can't see the pages to make a judgement. Hard picking. My mother in law has a book she really likes bUT to me it doesn't seem mmm advanced enough for my liking. I have a background in biology so I know genetics and so I want lots of details.
I’ve always wanted to read her books!None taken. There are an amazing number of books on chickens out there. I think some of the information is marginal at best - but at least it gets people started. Better than no info at all.
Actually the Talking Chickens book was offered at one of our chicken swaps. Another friend bought it. I read most of her copy but I don't have one yet.
As good as the book is, at this point in my life there aren't many commonly available books I can glean much from on the subject. I'm missing a couple good books I took to one of my advanced classes but can't find. I don't think anyone took them, I just misplaced them.
Most of the books are text books.
One was Broiler Breeder Management and another was a Poultry breeder nutrition text book.
Others I want are Poultry Lighting: theory and practice. ISBN-13: 978-0955210402
Genetics of Chicken Colours and another book is Genetics of Chicken Extremes. Neither are available from regular book sites but are sold exclusively by the author, Sigrid Van Dort, whom I have spoken with.
My daughter got 'Why Did the Chicken Cross the World' for me for christmas a few years ago. I loved it.Storeys Guide to Poultry Breeds was my first poultry book and was what originally got me interested in chickens... because of the variety available. I’d totally recognize it.
Another book to help guide your breeding would be The American Standard of Perfection. It’s very important, though it doesn’t teach genetics.
Genetics of the Fowl by F.B. Hutt is great for this.
And lastly, a chicken history book that reads like an amazing narrative -seriously this author is one of the best- Why Did the Chicken Cross the World?
These books may not be exactly what you’re looking for, but I’ve got a boatload of poultry books and these are my definite favorites. I love to use definite book sources for my knowledge and articles, BYC and the like are great, but I like to verify everything I hear.
They've been on my Christmas list for years.I’ve always wanted to read her books!
But the cost! I must put this on my Christmas list.
