Success with Baby Chicks

Norton Creek Press

Baby chicks--can anything be more adorable? So cute, so soft, so helpless! Give your baby chicks a great start by reading the only book devoted to them, Success With Baby Chicks.

Robert Plamondon had to read over a hundred poultry books to discover the sure-fire techniques in Success With Baby Chicks, and he tested them on his farm to find the ones that will work for you. Learn how to choose a good hatchery and a good breed, what kind of heat source to use, how to prepare the brooder area for your baby chicks, what to feed them, and how to avoid common mistakes. All of this is explained so clearly and completely that it has received praise from children, hobbyists, farmers, and poultry scientists alike.

Whether you brood five chicks or five thousand at a time, this is the book for you, because its practical methods work with flocks of any size.

And it will save you money. Learn how to build an insulated brooder in two hours for $20, keeping your chicks warmer and more comfortable than with overhead heat lamps, and saving two-thirds of the electricity into the bargain!

Success With Baby Chicks is volume 1 of the Norton Creek Classics series. Visit http: //www.nortoncreekpress.com for more of these practical, best-of-breed poultry books.

Robert Plamondon is a writer/farmer/engineer who has been awarded over 30 U.S. patents and raises free-range chickens on his farm in Oregon.
