“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.” - Best-selling poultry author Gail Damerow

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! - Dr. Mike Petrik, DVM, MsC, aka "Mike, The Chicken Vet" 

The Chicken ChickFacebookpage and blog are meccas of chicken-keeping knowledge and first-hand expertise. Kathy’s book continues in that same spirit. Grab a pen as you read, because you’ll want to underline and dog-ear constantly. Newbies and seasoned poultry owners will learn something new and invaluable on nearly every page, from fun tips to advice that may literally save a bird’s life. A must-own for poultry owners and anyone looking to start this incredibly rewarding hobby. - Brettan Hawkins, Social Media Manager, Tractor Supply Company

 As a large-scale provider of poultry, we understand how overwhelming it can be to get started and continue raising healthy chickens. The Chicken Chick blog has always been a rock-steady source of reliable, information for raising healthy backyard chickens in a friendly, approachable way. Kathy now offers the same common-sense, practical approach to the care and keeping of chickens in her new book, which guides chicken keepers through everything they need to know to raise healthy chickens. We highly recommend this book to chicken keepers of all experience levels. - Jeff Smith, Cackle Hatchery

*****5.0 out of 5 stars  by Geoon

"A Must-Have for ALL Chicken Keepers!"

 This book is the best by far of any that I have read on the subject of backyard chicken keeping. Each chapter is well organized and succinctly written to engage and educate those who are interested in establishing a flock of their own. The detailed illustrations and photographs add another dimension to this instructional guide and are a quick visual reference when encountering injured and sick birds. The book itself is very durable with a wipe clean cover. The pages are thick and glossy to withstand the many times that this book will be read and referenced over the years. Much thought went into the design and layout of the book and it was well worth the wait. If you have friends or family interested in starting their own backyard flock, this is a wonderful introduction into the world of chickens and poultry management! Thank you, Kathy! Looking forward to the release of your SECOND book - Lifestyles of the Chicken Famous: The Chicken Chick's Flock at Home and Play available for pre-order now. : )

"Chicken Keeping made easy for us busy folks"

Truly, I wish I had known about the Chicken Chick before I set up for and got my chickens. I found her about 3 months into my chicken keeping and revamped everything. I thought I had the set up figured out with all of the information out there, but there is an EASIER WAY! Save yourself time, money, effort and headache and make chicken keeping simple. The sand, the chicken waterer, the feeder all saved me money in the long run. The information has made a world of difference to me and my flock. We've been able to tend to minor issues and know when something is major now. The information is backed by science and poultry vets and packed neatly for you in this cute, informational book with helpful photos. I have recommended this book to so many people in the Bay Area looking into chicken keeping. It doesn't have to be complicated but there is also more to it than just putting some chickens behind some chicken wire. If someone says their chickens are a constant hassle, they haven't read Kathy's book. Just get it. Keep it handy for reference so you know what to do when something needs to be done. Happy reading and easy chicken keeping!

"Easy to follow approach gave me the confidence to start ..."

I am a huge fan of The Chicken Chick and her common sense approach to raising chickens. Her no-nonsense, easy to follow approach gave me the confidence to start with backyard chickens of my own and I am so happy to have her book as a resource at home. The book is well written, and the photos of her flock are wonderfully fun.
