A Kid’s Guide to Keeping Chickens

We rated this book:


Chickens are not normally thought of as great family pets, but A Kid’s Guide to Raising Chickens shows how they are, or at least can be. This book guides the prospective chicken owner through the process of purchasing chickens, starting with choosing a breed; next you learn where to purchase eggs or chicks. Then we are taught how to care for our chickens. There are sections on the types of coops, what type of food to use to feed your chicken, and how to take care of a sick chicken.

This book has so many pictures! It was super fun to read to children. It was also very informative while still being easy to understand. There are also crafts, like how to blow out and decorate eggs, or decorating egg cartons in different ways, and a section full of fun, easy recipes for using up all your eggs! This is the perfect guide for the beginning or prospective chicken owner, and even if you are not planning on raising chickens anytime soon, it will show you both what is involved and how rewarding it can be!
