This wasn't really a 'complete guide to' anything, much less 'poultry breeds'. It was a nice introduction, if you didn't know anything at all about the common breeds seen in and around feed and agriculture stores with the boom in backyard poultry keepingere is a little bit of information about breeds. A little bit about their needs. A little bit about housing. A little bit about feeding. short, this is a "little bit of everything" kind of book and by no means a book about "everything". If you do [...]

This book was somewhat informative but really tries to cram alot into a few pages for each breed. It would be better to expand this book with more pictures and more information. It really just skims the tip of the iceberg with deciding what you want to raise, be it chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys or ornamental birds.

There are only a few pages devoted to describing poultry breeds. The descriptions are laughably short and there are no pictures. Very disappointing as a g"uide to poultry breeds".If you want a very basic "how to raise poultry" book, then this would work in a pinch.
