Forward ByDr. Allen Pestion, DVMI first met Steven Koopes about 20 years ago when he brought to my office a Leghorn Chicken that needed medical care. Since then, Steven and I have had many visits together; some were on a professional level that required my Avian Veterinary skills and other were on a personal level. During our visits, Steven has continually to impress me with his enormous amount of knowledge about chickens. Without a doubt, I consider Steven to be an expert on how to give the correct care needed to provide a high quality of life for these creatures. I have encouraged Steven to take his prodigious amount of knowledge and put this information into a book so that others may benefit from it. Now, Steven has finally done this by writing the book “Chickens Complete A to Z Care Guide”. I have read Steven’s book and it is my pleasure and responsibility to strongly recommend this outstanding, substantial book to anyone that’s either new to the chicken world or even has been a long time owner. Steven’s book is immensely filled with ‘Spot On’ information about their total care taking needs. This is a must read book! I could not be more proud of my long time friend, Steven Koopes, and all that he has done for these extraordinary, beautiful creatures.Dr. Allen Pestion, DVM
