I am a book junkie too and am looking for one (or two) good books on chickens that will take me past the first year. I have had all the books out of the local library and have looked at bn but most of them seem written more for beginners. I want something to reference not just pretty pictures(ok I like pretty pictures) and reciepes. Are there any good books worth tracking down? Right now Storeys? Seems the the best. On that note any magazines worth the price? Most of the ones I've seen are put out by hobby farms or Mother Earth news?
