The backyard chicken is the new "it" pet—and with good reason: These birds are personable, beautiful, and (mostly) low maintenance. But they're not without their quirks and sometimes puzzling behaviors. That's where the experts at MyPetChicken.com have a beak up on the competition—they hear from chicken keepers daily and offer advice about common mistakes and pitfalls that occur when raising a flock of chickens in the backyard. And customers tell them that the advice they most appreciate is actually how not to raise chickens, what not to do, and why not to panic. The handbook helps potential chicken owners decide whether chicken keeping is right for them, how to make the best choices for their situations, how to start planning for the new pets, and—most importantly—how to head off potential trouble before the chicks arrive. Detailed care instructions for baby chicks and mature hens help to ensure a friendly and enjoyable flock. Covering both the good and the "oh no" experiences that beginners and avid backyard farmers experience, topics include choosing coops, planning a daily routine, learning about sanitation practices, and discovering signs of distress. Then the joy of chicken keeping comes full "ovoid" with 50 recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, featuring the incredible and versatile egg, from homemade egg noodles and sesame mayonnaise to a vegetable frittata and caramel custard.

Nutritional deficiency diseases Book review by Dr, Smith Jackson For over 35 years of veterinary practiced. I work with many poultry farms and backyard farmers. I am often asked severally, what books could I recommend to help them to learn, the best management and gain better understanding of keeping birds healthy and productive. I have been unable to help them much with their requests, as most of the text on are written for veterinarians and large-scale poultry farmers.With limited usefulness to a layperson.Few books are available for the fancier, and those that I have seen are generally incomplete and not accurate. However, I am delighted to see this publication is made available to the poultry fanciers.Philip Kansas Perry has covered the all the topic related to the keeping your birds healthy and productive for better management very competently and completely.Dr. Philip k. Perry has also presented his information in a quite accessible format for the fancier to understand. Prevention of diseases through good management is essential when raising poultry, especially the backyard birds, which are not always vaccinated for many of the diseases. Having a book such as this which outlined good management strategies as well as diseases prevention is a valuable asset to the poultry fancier.I believe the best use of this book is to read it through for the diseases prevention management information.Implement whatever management practices that you are not already using.Then keep the book handy as a reference if you observed any disease problem with your chicken refer to it.
