Excellent Reading for People Considering Raising Poultry

This book is very helpful if you (like me) were considering raising Chickens and Turkeys on the same farm. It can be done, but read this first. I am pleased with all of the information provided and highly recommend this book.

A Must Have Book

If you are a poultry lover; this book is a must. Invaluable information and pictures.

Underated book, has wonderful & complete information

Personally, I like this book better than Storey's Raising Chickens. It has just as much information on raising baby chicks as the Raising Chickens guide. Leonard Mercia covers raising all poultry quite well in this guide. Good for any novice of poultry. In 352 pages, Mr. Mercia covers chickens, turkeys, ducks and guineas all quite throughly. Plus, he writes in a straight and concise manner without being textbooky and boring. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone no matter what poultry they were raising. He covers poultry for profit and butchering how-to, briefly as well. The only drawbacks I can see with this book is it's in black and white, with only line drawings. Also, only a few breeds of poultry are covered, so I'd pair this with the "Storey's Poultry Illustrated Poultry book" by Carol Ekarius if you haven't picked out your poultry breed yet.

If you only get ONE book for your poultry Library, THIS ONE

I picked this up at the public library to skim over and take back but after having it for just one week, I must have my own copy. The wonderful knowledge that is presented in easy to understand directions from all aspects of poultry. The nice part is they have instructions how to build most any poultry equipment you might need and this would be great for anyone, especially home schoolers.I am getting my copy.
