The Silkie Chicken, which is believed to be of oriental descent is one of the most unique chicken breeds that you will ever see. The fortunate absence of a structure called the Barcibel makes the feathers of this beautiful bird look unattached and extremely fluffy. These birds are primarily owned for ornamental and showing purposes. However, commercially, they are put to use for something entirely different. Usually, the Silkie is used commercially to hatch the eggs of other chickens. The fact that this bird is such a good brooder and mother, makes it popular among breeders who want another breed to babysit the chicks. They are also extremely calm and docile, making them the perfect backyard chickens. In fact, this small sized bird is considered the friendliest of all the chicken breeds. Not to mention, it is also extremely adorable and cuddly! If you are a first time chicken owner, this book is your comprehensive guide to chicken care. Everything that you need to know about the health and proper development of your birds is in this book. This book takes you step by step through various chicken care practises that can be slightly intimidating for first time pet owners. You can read about common issues like feeding, housing and healthcare for backyard chickens. I do hope that this book is as informative as I intended it to be. It is simple and fun to read, I assure you. So, here is wishing you pleasant times with your beloved Silkie Chickens. My silkies are funny and make me laugh all day. I hope yours are funny too!

Finally backyard farmers who want to keep a few hens for eggs have a bible that's attractive enough to leave out on the coffee table, and inexpensive enough to purchase on a whim. This comprehensive guide, written in charming prose from the perspective of an organic farmer, will appeal to readers who are interested in raising chickens, or simply want the best knowledge about how to cook them. With this in mind, farmer and animal expert Jennifer Megyesi discusses all the basic details of raising the birds—general biology, health, food, choosing breeds, and so on—and she cuts through the smoke to identify what terms like "organic," "free-range," and so on really mean for poultry farmers and consumers. No chicken book would be complete without information on how to show chickens for prizes, and this is no different, but The Joy of Keeping Chickens also stresses the importance of self-sustainability and organic living, and the satisfaction of keeping heirloom breeds. Readers will appreciate the comprehensive nature of this readable, informative guide, and Megyesi's enthusiasm about keeping chickens. Coupled with Geoff Hansen's gorgeous full-color photographs, this text makes for an instant classic in the category.
