Description

Keeping chickens involves understanding, commitment, and attention to detail. Getting the basics right is essential, and this demands a solid appreciation of important areas such as housing, feeding, breed choice, and health requirements.

Whether you're a newcomer or an old hand, The Chicken Keeper's Problem Solver provides the information you need to nip problems in the bud - and, better still, avoid them in the first place. It contains 100 common problems faced by chicken keepers, spelling out in clear and simple terms what the underlying cause is and how to solve it. Each one is tackled in depth, with photographs and diagrams, as well as a wide range of practical tips and useful insights.
