The Chicken Health Handbook, 2nd Edition is an indispensable resource for every chicken keeper. Folks, run, do not walk, to get your copy! For someone who constantly seeks authoritative sources of accurate chicken keeping information, this is huge! I don't know any chicken keeper who doesn't have at least one Gail Damerow book in their chicken library. I rely on it often in my work and in caring for my chickens and I know you will too.
I pored over my galley copy for few weeks, enjoying the completely new format, presentation, extraordinary illustrations and absorbing the fresh content. It is so much more than the 1994 Chicken Health Handbook with a fresh coat of paint, Gail Damerow’s 1994 classic bestseller serves as the foundation for this wholly transformed version worthy of its own distinguishing title.
Widely regarded as the Patron Saint of Poultry since her 1994 book of the same name became the chicken keeper’s bible, Gail Damerow has kept her finger on the pulse of chicken management innovations, advances and trends, bringing us this completely re-calibrated, modernized Chicken Health Handbook. More than a guide to chicken health, this book is a call to deliberate thought and informed chicken care decision-making, concisely providing the tools necessary in chapters that read like a novel.
