Farmers John's Review
This is the best and most complete chicken health book I have seen. I've had chickens for years and most books just give a little chapter on health issues. I could never find the problem I was looking for until this book came along. This book covers just about everything. My copy is well worn out. If you own chickens you should have this book.
