WHAT’S NEW?

RAISING CHICKENS

If you’ve thought of keeping chickens, you might want to take a look at Storey’s Guide to Raising Chickens by Gail Damerow, recently released in its fourth edition. This is a comprehensive reference book, which has been providing excellent guidance to poultry keepers for more than 20 years. Now updated and redesigned, it includes details on shelter, food, health care, eggs, chicks and meat – basically, all you need to know. It also explores recent research into chicken behaviour and communication. With new colour photos and illustrations, this is packed with information for wannabe and established chicken keepers alike. Storey’s Guide to Raising Chickens is published by Storey Publishing
