    I must have 5 or 6 books on raising chickens by now - all of them really great - but started one yesterday that really stands out for its thoroughness:

    Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens
    Care-Feeding-Facilities

    by Gail Damerow

    I'm traveling alone and was sitting with my book in a rather fine restaurant last night when the wait person approached, and, trying to make conversation, asked what I was reading. When I showed her the cover (complete with a photo of a clutch of yellow chicks) her jaw actually dropped. [​IMG]

    I think she was expecting Jane Austen... [​IMG]

    Anyway, I'm really enjoying the book.

    It is my go to guide. I have heard differing opinions on things here, but when I need a final answer, I go to Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens. You can't go wrong.
