Chickens at Home is a concise, comprehensive guide to keeping chickens (chooks). Ideal for complete beginners who want to know how to look after hens on a daily basis and what equipment you will need. This book avoids the exotic and deals with the basics of keeping chooks in the Northern Hemisphere. Useful as a cross-reference to our own practices and as an introduction to backyard layers. Again somewhat limited by the housing which applies specifically to the cold climates, but contains useful management information. This book is published by the Domestic Fowl Trust in England. The trust aims to conserve rare breeds of poultry. Victoria Roberts is the editor of the current edition of the British Poultry Standard for the Poultry Club of Great Britain. Together Michael and Victoria have contributed a great deal to the conservation of rare breeds and to the body of knowledge available about the state of pure breeds in the UK. UK 1983.
