    I got a Barnes and Noble gift card for Christmas, so I picked this book up. It's fabulous -- so much information all in one place (and great photos)!

    Does anyone else have this book? What do you think of it?

    Luv it. Glamour shots of chickens, ducks, geese... Just need hot cocoa, a cozy throw and my favorite spot on the couch.

    Got mine about a year ago, and it's just about worn out. I flip through the pages hoping to get some tidbit of info I hadn't picked up on earlier. Oh and the pictures are great, much better than the illustrations in most catalogs and hatchery sites.
