The ultimate Australian guide to keeping chickens in your backyard.

The more obvious rewards of chicken ownership – like delicious fresh eggs daily and fabulous cost-free fertiliser – are well known. Chickens even help keep the number of pest insects in your garden. But there are other benefits too, not least of which is the endless entertainment you get watching them scratch, peck, socialise and preen.

This book includes all the information you need to keep your very own chickens:
How to choose a breed suited to your needs, space and climate
How to choose and build or buy a coop
How to care for your chickens
How to breed chicks successfully

We love this book. We refer to it all the time, especially when having a problem with our chooks. And it has been borrowed by so many family and friends who already keep chickens or are thinking about getting chickens. Practical advice about keeping chickens in Australia - really user friendly. Unfortunately there are many pictures - it would be great if there were photos of different breeds. But otherwise a great book.

Australian Chickens

The best thing about this book is that it is for the Australian chicken keeper. A lot of books are American or British and don't deal with the unique issues in Australia such as the heat. A must for every chicken keeper.
