I have kept chickens for a number of years and fully appreciate their different characteristics and what intelligent creatures they are.
My over-riding thought on having read it is that, although described as a booklet it is crammed full of educational and interesting advice which I enjoyed reading and I would imagine a new chicken keeper would find invaluable.
The information on the characteristics and breeds is very good, and worth bearing in mind, particularly if you live in a built up area. Although I did realise there were many different breeds of chicken, I have to admit, that I just picked my hens by colour [Yep! Sorry it’s true] and I don’t suppose I’m the first person to do that!
