Chicken-keeping is an increasingly popular hobby as more and more people discover the benefits of raising chickens and supplying their own eggs. Written by an expert chicken-keeper of many years standing, the subjects covered include choice of breed, housing, feeding, breeding, showing and indeed all the many topics the new chicken keeper will want to understand. This practical guide incorporates much of the author s forty years of experience as a chicken keeper, as well as taking advantage of the knowledge and experience of other enthusiasts. Also included, either because of their relevance, or simply their ability to raise a wry smile, are several snippets taken from poultry books written during the first half of the twentieth century

Review quote

'When I first heard about this book, I wondered whether there was a need for another book about chickens, but when I heard that Jeremy Hobson was the author, I was keen to obtain a copy. Jeremy Hobson is highly regarded and his name peppers my book shelf as the author of a number of excellent books on poultry and smallholding (he has almost 30 titles published now) so I was keen to get stuck into his latest offering... Jeremy offers practical advice to chicken keepers and Success with Chickens is both an enjoyable read and useful reference book for newcomers to the hobby. The more experienced poultry keeper will also learn something new though and I certainly gleaned some interesting facts that I hadn't read elsewhere... If you're looking for a good all round book on chicken keeping, Success with Chickens should definitely be on your short list!'. -
