The complete guide to breeds and welfare.In the hope of answering poultry related questions before they arise, Choosing and Raising Chickens explains both the theory and the practical aspects of chicken keeping. It also includes quirky, “I never knew that” pieces of information.No matter how experienced a person may be in a certain area, he or she cannot know everything there is to know about it and will still have things to learn on a daily basis. Nowhere is this more true than when keeping chickens.
