"In this charming book, the authors provide a nice overview of the basics of poultry keeping for those new to the hobby. Beautiful color photographs throughout demonstrate the appeal of chickens, adding to the value of this nice primer on backyard chicken keeping." --Booklist
"LIVING WITH CHICKENS will help birds and their owners live in harmony and health. Rossier's easy-going style will be welcomed by both new and experienced poultry owners." --Stephen Green-Armytage, EXTRAORDINARY CHICKENS
"Everything you ever wanted to know and more! Beautifully realized with superb photographs--chock full of information--a chicken aficionado's delight."
--Mark Lewis, Writer/Director, The Natural History of the Chicken
"This is a wonderful book, the most comprehensive and easily digested book about chickens I've come across. It's a delight to read a book and find yourself nodding, muttering that it was about time someone wrote a logical, clear, helpful guide to chicken raising. I can promise that anyone with an interest in chickens will be advised to toss the other books and keep this one. The subtitle--Everything You Need to Know to Raise Your Own Backyard Flock--sets a standard for truth in advertising.--Valley News (Lebanon, NH)
"This book doesn't romanticize chickens or rhapsodize them. It's a practical, plain-as-dirt guide to raising chickens, it's spirit captured in the unexalted subtitle: 'Everything You Need to Know to Raise Your Own Backyard Flock'. It's all very matter-of-factly rendered, but never at the expense of the essential dignity of the enterprise. It's an uncommonly beautiful book to look at, too, with just enough lore aobut these beautiful, underappreciated animals to keep those of us entertained, who, the the end, will leave the nuggeteering to someone else."--The Arkansas Times
