    The best book for the laymen is 'The Chicken Health Handbook" by Gail Damerow.

    There are others written for veterinarians.

    that book looks great. would you recommend one of the books for veterinarians, I like how they brake things down technical, and explain why and how the diseases work.

    I prefer the referring to the "Merck Vet Manual." It's easily accessable online and it's free.
