About the Author

Chris Graham has been the editor of market-leading Practical Poultry magazine (www.practicalpoultry.com) since it launched in 2004. As a trained photographer and experienced editor, he worked for 20 years on motoring magazines, then made a welcomed switch to the rural sector. He now also edits Practical Pigs magazine, and is the author of Choosing and Keeping Chickens (Hamlyn, 2006) and Wisdom for Hen Keepers (Taunton Press, 2013). Married to Rachel, and with three children, Chris keeps chickens, quail, pigs, cats, a dog, and a number of elderly lawn mowers at his home in rural East Sussex.

Reviews

"Covering 100 common problems in ten thematic chapters, Graham (Wisdom for Hen Keepers) has produced the essential guide for all things chicken husbandry. A rich array of full-color photographs, engaging illustrations, a glossary, an index, and other great design details make this book easy to use and easy on the eyes, although chapters on parasites and rodents (and a plethora of similar invading pests) are not for the faint of heart. Lively explanations, contextual information and helpful, straightforward advice make this a great choice for backyard enthusiasts and a potentially sobering read for those planning this pursuit. Housing, breed selection, care, and feeding all require serious attention; this sort of access to specialized knowledge isn't so common these days. While much of this territory is covered in classics such as Gail Damerow's Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens, Graham's approach and treatment are markedly different. For many readers this format will be more comfortable to navigate. Overall, this manual is a thoughtfully designed, convenient reference and can be a huge boon for chicken keepers and their broods. VERDICT A great addition for any chicken keeper's shelf." - Library Journal

"This is the book that I wish I had written. This book is brilliant!" - BackyardPoultryMag.com
