Hi all!
I have not yet raised any chickens, I want to gather as much info before I do. I am looking forward to having my own chickens in the future. I want to be well prepared and know everything inside and out about raising to selling chickens and eggs. What are some very informative books about raising chicken? Thanks ! :)

These are my fav that I go to all the time: Chickens by Derek Hall, Storey's Guide To Raising Chickens, Keeping Chickens by Jeremy Hobson & Cecelia Lewis. My new books I got the past couple months: The Chicken Health Handbook by Gail Damerow, Avoid The Vet - by Practical Poultry - lots of color photos in this book which I love!

Carla Emery ~ The Encyclopedia of Country Living.

A great all around book. (check it out at your library)

I personally don't think that books are the way to go. Although they do give you what is supposed to happen, we all know that doesn't always turn out right. My advise is to buy books and watch videos on coops, watch videos to breeds, and join other chicken forums like backyardchicken.com. You will be able to learn about first hand information. Have fun with this new project and the best of luck;)

First hand information is great ... as long as it good and true.

I learned my leason the hard way with youtube and my aromatherapy class. (Always double check and research ... research ... and then a little more research.;))

Best of luck!
