Storey's Guide to Raising Poultry
This is an invaluable resource for everyone who raises poultry. It contains the most comprehensive and current information available on:
- Selecting birds for meat or egg production
- Housing and equipment
- Home processing of eggs and poultry
- Flock health
- Brooding and rearing
Why? Because they focus on fundamentals, have many illustrations and data, are not so long that they're offputting and are written in "laymen's language" for USA conditions by authors respected in their industry. Once you have a "Storey" sense of a species you can move to other books that address more specific aspects.

Great book with tons of information. While I am still waiting for the arrival of my chicks, the information is the book is helping me to prepare for them and to provide them with the best possible chances for great health and happiness from day one.

All of the Storey books are well written and contain a lot of good information for starters. The best way to start out in poultry is to research books.
