Living with Chickens: Everything You Need to Know to Raise Your Own Backyard Flock

von Jay Rossier, American Poultry Association (Einleitung), Geoff Hansen (Fotograf)

Preis: EUR 15,95
Sprache: Englisch
Taschenbuch - 203 Seiten - Lyons Press
Erscheinungsdatum: 1. Februar 2004

In this charming book, the authors provide a nice overview of the basics of poultry keeping for those new to the hobby. Breaking down the life of the chicken and chicken husbandry into 10 chapters, the text covers the essentials of each aspect of keeping poultry.

The discussion of which type to raise goes over the differences between breeds raised primarily for eggs or meat but also points out the aesthetics of the different colors and markings of chicken plumage. The designs of chicken coops, roosts, runs, nest boxes, and feeders are explained, along with how and what to feed the birds. Sections on how to hatch eggs, raise chicks, and buy adult chickens will get the poultry keeper started, and segments on handling eggs and butchering adult chickens assist in dealing with the produce from the flock.

A glossary, bibliography, list of resources, and catalog of chicken breeds round out the text. Beautiful color photographs throughout demonstrate the appeal of chickens, adding to the value of this nice primer on backyard chicken keeping.

The Chicken Health Handbook

von Gail Damerow, Amanda Haar (Herausgeber)

Preis: EUR 18,95
Sprache: Englisch
Taschenbuch - 352 Seiten
Storey Books

Discusses the different illnesses which can attack chickens, describing their causes, symptoms, and treatments.

The editor of Rural Heritage has written a first-rate guide for the small producer interested in healthful meat and eggs as well as the exotic breed fancier raising birds for show. Having published a number of general guides to backyard poultry, including one for children, Damerow here concentrates on everything that can go wrong: diseases; problems associated with keeping birds in close quarters or caging them; litter; cannibalism; vitamin deficiency, resulting in poor molting; incubators that are too hot or too cold; predators; and the invasions of rats. She stresses that the best preventative measures involve protecting one's flock against outside influences (such as wild birds or other chickens), careful culling, and balanced nutrition.

Damerow is a good writer, carefully walking the line between insulting the reader's intelligence, a flaw with many books of this sort, and giving more technical information than growers need. Her discussion of how one keeps straight which chick came from which mating--which involves the injection of food dyes into fertilized eggs, and carefully marking the webbings of feet--is downright ingenious.
