Kathy's Chicken Chick blog is one of the few consistently reliable online sources of information on all things chicken. Her book does not disappoint. <b> - Bestselling poultry author Gail Damerow</b> Kathy provides excellent information in a well-organized format about how to maintain the health of chickens and care for them properly. As a chicken owner myself, her book enlightened me on husbandry practices that I will incorporate into my flock. I am thrilled to have this comprehensive guide to pet chickens as a resource, and will recommend it to all of my poultry clients. <b> - Forrest I. Townsend, III, DVM, DACVS</b> I've known and worked with Kathy since 2012, and am very pleased finally to see a backyard chicken book written by someone so knowledgeable and dedicated to spreading real facts that dispel many of the rumors surrounding backyard chicken keeping. You are holding a well-written and reliably fact-checked book--and an invaluable addition to your bookshelf! <b> - Mike Petrik, DVM, MsC, aka Mike, The Chicken Vet </b>
