If you want to incubate, hatch, and brood chicks yourself, rather than buying them from a hatchery, this is the guide you need. Poultry authority Gail Damerow explains exactly how to hatch healthy baby chickens, ducklings, goslings, turkey poults, and guinea keets, addressing everything from selecting a breed and choosing the best incubator to ensuring proper set-up and sanitary conditions, understanding embryo development, and feeding and caring for newborn chicks in a brooder. This is an indispensable reference for any poultry raiser, whether you want to hatch three eggs or one hundred.

Reviewer: Cheryl from Holstein  
This book is very informative and covers about everything you need to know on how to incubate and hatch your own chicks.  It has very good information on troubleshooting of what went wrong.  Nice scientific charts explaining how a chick grows inside the egg.
