This essential guide provides all the key information needed for keeping your own poultry, from setting up and choosing the right site, housing, feeding, daily care routines, disease prevention and breeding.

The guide is also packed with plenty of practical advice on managing egg production, incubating and rearing and specific nutritional requirements. It is ideal for newcomers interested in learning all about the basics of henkeeping, as well as for those seeking a more self-sufficient, environmentally-friendly lifestyle. It urbanites wishing to embrace aspects of country living.
