   Great reviews It wasn’t what I expected?
What a waste of time, Mr. Dhaliwal said. It's great to have all the reference material in one place, but I found it outdated, a lot of which I didn't need. This is a great introduction to the world of veterinary medicine, and also to medical care of chicks. She would do well to keep it beginner-level chickadees, eggs, feed, a step by step on coop with actual plans and photos. I'm not a huge fan of beets, but I can figure out how to plant them in my coop. It's great to have that separate book, Hachette said. Maybe they could have their own book? But I found it to be beginner level mixed with expert opinion mixed with facts and no brainer in with what I really wanted to know. What a waste of time, energy and money, Michaela wrote in an e-mail. I’ll look for books about coops and stick to a great step by step about how to build one, he said.
   Great Guide!
Yes, I have several chicken keeping books, but this is my go-to guide. In the last few months I got rid of mites on my hens, made a better coop bedding choice and nursed a sick chicken back to health following the author's advice. She also has a great blog, which has some great videos. So happy with this book that I've preordered her next one.
   Love this book
Her love of chickens and respect for her own flock shines through in the book as it does on her Facebook page, web and live feed. I especially recommend this book to everybody dreaming of having chickens in their yard or those who have already taken the plunge. Her research is thorough and well-researched. I'm excited to be working with her again, Simon said.
   You are awesome! ----love the book
I can't say where was this book when I first started chicken keeping! She covers everything and so down to earth-practical knowledge and what a lot of knowledge- from many different sources! Thanks to Chicken Chick and your family for what they also contributed to your life so you could write this! Thanks for the book!--Lorraine from Maine and N. FtMyers!
