There is a wealth of information in this book. There is both a high level overview and a detailed view on almost any topic that I can think of.
I have eight chickens that lay about 35 eggs per week. I plan to increase my flock to 32 chickens now. I have purchased a number of books on Amazon regarding chickens and I put this book high on the list of "should have books". Another equally good book is "The Small-Scale Poultry Flock: An All-Natural Approach to Raising Chickens". If you only bought these two books you would be very comfortable feeding your family with the eggs from your own garden.
I did not purchase new chickens to get to my goal of 32. Instead three of my hens provided baby chicks for the rest. I now have 12 adults (4 donations) and 20 chicks. This book was very helpful as I researched what to do for the new "peeps".
The three hens hatched 23 chicks. Three died. This book helped me understand what to do and what not to do (and understand why we cannot do it all). One died in a half shell in the water container face down (even though this was for watering chicks). One was injured falling out of the nest (about 4 feet). I spent five days with a pen, heat lamps, hand feeding water) trying to save this one. The last one died having never been able to leave the shell (half out). In each case this book helped me understand what to do (sometimes telling me to wait it out). Nature can be cruel but knowledge can make us kind.
Great book that I turn to every day as they grow. Amazing to watch the little ones run behind their mother as I bring out some "treats" for them. Grapes, mealworms, corn on the cob (from my garden), etc. If you like to care for animals, chickens are a lot of fun and this book helps understand what to do. 5 stars plus.
The author feels that you should be able to raise the chicks to layers before you worry about hatching eggs.
I felt that the information on brooding was complete and through, advanced beginners or higher levels of poultry enthusiasts might find this section redundant.
However, I would say that if you can't raise chickens you can't hatch any eggs. It's worth the money, in my opinion.
