Description:

An informative introduction to chickens for enterprising kids, whether they're 4-Hers or not! Printed on beautiful paper stock and positively riddled with photographs, this title covers many of the basics for a chicken "project" -- including chickens kept for pets, eggs and even for meat, if your child is so inclined. More from the editor:

"Raising chickens teaches more than animal husbandry. It's a hands-on chance to learn the character- and community-building principles and practices that 4-H is all about. And, of course, it's fun. This easy-to-follow, illustrated guide introduces beginners to the basics of how to raise chickens. Whether you're a 4-Hr, a first-time poultry owner, or a future egg farmer, The 4-H Guide to Raising Chickens provides step-by-step instructions for your project. From selecting a breed to caring for chicks, from housing and fencing to feeding and preventing or treating illness, the guide presents simple, straightforward information about chickens of all kinds... It also includes a glossary and list of resources."
