The Haynes manual is about the best I have read. All you need to know but put in an easy way and most importantly, for dummies like me, nice big pictures :lol:

Yup...definitely the Haynes one.
1 x Blue Orpington, 1 x Buff Orpington, 1 x Light Sussex, 1 x Cream Legbar, 1 x Bluebell, 1 x Maran Cuivree, 1 x Brown Nick. 1 x White Star, 1 x Speckledy, 1 x Welsummer, 1 x Copper Black Maran and 1 x Speckled Sussex. And I was only ever gonna get two or three. How on earth did I end up with twelve?. Ah well.

I just got Choosing and keeping chickens by Chris Graham http://www.amazon.co.uk/Choosing-Keepin ... 321&sr=8-3 I got mine in german though, but it's full of sound advice and loads of photos, it only covers a few breeds. however it's only a fiver on amazon...well worth it.

I can also recommend Colplete Encyclopedia of Chickens http://www.amazon.co.uk/Complete-Encycl ... 547&sr=1-1 Loads more breeds covered and loads of information. only 7 quid on amazon
Altsteirer, Bielefelders, Welsummer bantams, Silkies and Muscovy ducks (sold a load of them :) )

Any poultry book by Katie Thear is worth a read.

I've got the Haynes one but just that so can't compare.

Here's the contents page so you can see what it covers.
