      A small flock of poultry can supply all of the eggs your family needs during the year. And, after your hens have completed their egg-laying days, there will be meat for barbecuing or roasting. Luckily, a small flock takes a relatively small amount of space and is easy to manage.

      If your family is among the growing number interested in raising chickens for eggs or meat, The Backyard Chicken Book contains all the essential information for hatching, brooding, rearing, and managing family-sized poultry flocks. The first step in deciding on a family flock is determining what breed will work best for your needs. For example, you can go with a laying breed that produces top-quality eggs but provides little meat, such as the White Leghorn. Or, you could select a dual-purpose Rhode Island Red or New Hampshire that provides fewer eggs but much better meat. In addition to helping you select your type, this handy guide will also tell you what you need to know about:

      • Providing housing for home poultry flocks
      • Rearing the laying flock pullets
      • Managing laying problems
      • Fighting pests and disease
      • Raising other poultry such as ducks, turkeys, geese, bantams and guinea fowl
      Enhanced with full-color photos and dozens of illustrations, The Backyard Chicken Book is the perfect guide for the first-time poultry raiser.
