Gardening with Chickens more than delivers what I was initially expecting out of this book. I have now read through it twice. As a beginning Gardner and a new chicken owner, I really wanted to know how best to maintain both where each are happy, healthy and thriving.
Before I read the book, I was expecting exclusive information on how to garden with Chickens. Not only did the information in this book deliver this information well beyond my expectations, it also gave me great tips on gardening in general.
I extremely recommend this book to anyone who will be growing their own herb and veggie garden while maintaining happy and healthy chickens in the process, all while using the benefits of having chickens in your garden.
A++++ goes to Gardening with Chickens
I particularly enjoyed the sections on herbs because I am trying to learn as much as I can about the health benefits herbs bring to all animals. In addition you will learn about chicken poop and how you can benefit from that! Gardening around the run is possible and landscaping the area makes the chicken run more enjoyable for both you and the chickens. Lisa Steele gives you many ideas on what to plant and why. Not only landscaping ideas, but also projects like building a chicken salad bar. Not all plants are healthy for chickens to munch on so make sure you check out the section on toxic plants before allowing your chickens free snacking in the garden or around your property.
Overall, Gardening with Chickens is beautifully designed and a pleasure to enjoy. I now have a copy completely dog eared and noted because I know I will be grabbing this book countless times in the future. I definitely recommend this to all gardeners, whether you have chickens now or not. You can't go wrong with a book written by Lisa Steele.
