What's the best chicken book/s for great husbandry advice, covering health, diet, good shed construction/design etc?
Preferably Australian, as it's probably more relevant to our country and its conditions.
Recommendations of outstanding overseas books also welcome.

Thanks

Hi Rubberparrot & Deb, the following are some suggestions, we subscribe to some of the Magazines, including Australasian Poultry.

Practical Poultry Magazine, its UK Based but quite good
http://www.practicalpoultry.co.uk/

Backyard Poultry Magazine is a USA based Magazine also quite good
http://www.backyardpoultrymag.com/index.html

Home Grown Poultry Magazine is USA based this is a fully interactive digital magazine, comes via Email
http://www.homegrownpoultry.com/

Bellsouth have a good selection of poultry books including Hardback & Paperback

Thanks Grabby. Reviews for that book reckon the title is misleading, as even some experienced keepers reported learning a thing or two from the book. Good recommendation.

Anyone else had any good chook reads over the years?
