Editorial Reviews

From the Author

When I first got chickens, I thought it would be like getting another pet. I was wrong. Keeping chickens is much easier than having a dog or a cat. It takes 5-10 minutes a day to check on them, making sure their water and feeder are full, and collecting eggs. Mine have an attached run space which is predator-proof, worry free. And you need to clean the coop once a month or so. Chickens eat our kitchen scraps, peck around in the yard, and get a little organic feed from an automatic feeder.

In return, we get fresh eggs every day which look and taste much better than anything in the store (according to studies, they are more nutritious and lower in cholesterol, too...see the book for more info). Save some money, become a little more self-reliant, and lower your cholesterol by eating homegrown eggs. The information in this booklet is all you need to get started. Chickens are simple and fun to keep, and you won't believe you many eggs you can get from 2-4 laying hens. Enjoy!
