Reviews

"Twenty years ago, I got my first hen and turned to The Chicken Health Handbook for answers. Today, Damerow's work continues to provide sound counsel. This new edition -- based in solid science, detailed and comprehensive -- is an accessible and practical guide for anyone who has chickens."

"A must-have book for all chicken lovers."

"An outstanding book that needs to be in every poultry raiser's library. Accurate, valuable information that can be read with ease."
-- Glenn Drowns, author of Storey's Guide to Raising Poultry


"When it comes to questions on chicken health, this is the book I turn to for quick reference. We have one on every desk at Stromberg's and recommend it to everyone from beginners to longtime fanciers. The extensive pictures, illustrations, and explanations in the new edition should make it required reading for anyone interested in keeping a strong flock."
-- Eric Stromberg, Stromberg's Chicks and Game Birds Unlimited


"Widely regarded as the Patron Saint of Poultry since her 1994 edition became the chicken keeper's bible, Gail Damerow has kept her finger on the pulse of chicken management innovations, advances, and trends, bringing us this completely recalibrated, modernized Chicken Health Handbook. More than a guide to chicken health, this book is a call to deliberate thought and informed decision-making, concisely providing the tools necessary in chapters that read like a novel.

"Packed with pragmatic information that embraces a holistic model of wellness, this book offers trouble-shooting tools and a panoply of real-world solutions based in solid science. It should be standard issue with every chick purchased."

-- Kathy Shea Mormino, The Chicken Chick(R)
