About this book

Who would have thought that keeping chickens would ever become a lifestyle objective rather than as was the case a few years ago, a pastime generally indulged in at the bottom of the garden by a few middle-aged men?

The hobby of keeping chickens over recent years has grown to phenomenal proportions with an estimated half a million chicken-keepers in the UK,covering chickens of all shapes and sizes, from the exclusive, upmarket and, sometimes exotic, rare and pure breeds – to ex-battery hens.

Subjects covered in Success with Chickens include choice of breed; housing; feeding; breeding; showing and indeed all the many topics a new chicken keeper will want to understand. This practical, often anecdotal, guide incorporates much of the author's 40 years of experience as a chicken keeper, as well as taking advantage of the knowledge and experience of other enthusiasts.
