The Coop Partners With Powell's Books

To bring you the best selection of poultry, agriculture and pet books available.

Why Powell's?
We had the opportunity to enter into a similar relationship with Amazon.com or Borders Books, but we chose Powell's for several reasons.

  • Powell's is our favorite book store. The City of Books shop covers a square block several stories deep. In addition to a huge selection of new titles, Powell's does a brisk business in used books which means that browsing around we often find books we would like at fantastic prices. Poultry folks in the know visit Powell's regularly, treasure hunting for everything from antique "Standards" to out of print texts.
  • Powell's has great people - We have always had positive experiences shopping with Powell's.
  • Powell's does business with a great sense of ethics, acceptance of diversity, and participation in the communities where they are located. We believe that is worthy of consideration.
We are sure you will have as much fun with Powell's as we do. Now you can get your hands on great books regardless of where you are in the world...

These are a few of the books I think provide a good background in each of their respective areas. The ones with hyper-links are regularly stocked by Powell's. If there isn't a hyper-link, you may still find a used copy of the book by browsing the Poultry Section of their site. In the mean time, I am working on Powell's to add the book to their regular purchase list.
