Reviews

The Country Today (Eau Claire, WI), March 28, 2007

"No matter if you're a neophyte in animal ownership or a seasoned farmer with years of experience, you'll learn something in these 'how-to' books. Best of all, they are approved by the FFA, which means you can feel good about handing them to your future farmer."
Midwest Book Review, April 2007

"How to Raise Chickens is a comprehensive manual for novice and experienced chicken raisers ... an all-inclusive guide, written in straightforward terms to be accessible to readers of all backgrounds ... an absolute 'must-have' for anyone considering the practice."


Backyard Poultry Magazine June/July 2007

"This book is thoroughly modern and comprehensive. It is highly recommended."

Garden.org, Oct. 27, 2007

"Since tasting rich, flavorful scrambled eggs fresh from an Oregon friend's flock, I hanker to raise a few chickens myself. Christine Heinrichs' How to Raise Chickens - Everything You Need to Know (Voyageur Press, 2007; $19.95) is more than a primer. It's brimming with fascinating history and anecdotes, as well as helpful details - from breed types to caring for chicks to showing your special bird. The photos introduced me to colorful language describing bird varieties: Naked Necks, Ameraucana hen with muffs, Black Breasted Red bantam rooster, large crested Silver Laced Polish pullet, and many more. An enticement for the health conscious: eggs from free-range chickens have considerably more vitamin E, beta carotene, omega-3 fatty acids and half the cholesterol of commercially raised eggs, notes Heinrichs."


ANIMAL PEOPLE, animalpeoplenews.org, Oct. 29, 2007

"The utilitarian titles and the Future Farmers of America logo on the covers of How To Raise Chickens, How To Raise Cattle, and How To Raise Horses conceal and camouflage a wealth of indications inside about how profoundly animal advocacy is beginning to influence animal agriculture."
Small Farm Today, July/Oct 2007 "This is a good overall book to encourage people to get into the chicken business ... Lots of colored charts cover history, facts and chick lore."
