Pitched at both the back garden chicken keeper who perhaps keeps a few free range chickens for eggs and smallholders with larger flocks of non-intensive stock, it covers all aspects of keeping your birds both healthy and productive, with extensive sections on:
* Choosing your healthy hens
* A healthy environment
* Healthy housing
* Feeding for health
* Spotting early signs of problems
* Hens with special needs
* A complete A-Z of chicken ailments
* Diagnostic tables
* The annual chicken MOT
Accompanied by full color photographs and diagrams, each section is color-coded to help the reader to access the relevant the relevant chapters at a glance. Written in Terry’s down-to-earth style, this will be a classic work of reference for the nation’s chicken keepers for many years to come.
