Do you know that an average flock of 15 hens and 50 baby chicks will produce over 150 pounds of meat and over 3,500 eggs in a year?

But they also require a sound knowledge of how to raise them properly, and this book is probably the finest guide available for successfully raising a small flock of chickens. For the person who wants to raise chickens in the backyard, garage or basement, and for the established farmer who needs help in making his poultry raising profitable, this book explains what to do and how to do it.
