KEEPING PET CHICKENS
When you’re looking for fresh eggs, what could be better than going out to your backyard and collecting them, courtesy of your own home-bred chickens? Food doesn’t come any fresher, and the good news is that keeping two or three chickens is easy. They don’t require farmland or much special equipment, and today’s modern chicken houses are designed so that anyone with even a little backyard or terrace space can keep poultry. But you will need some essential “must-know” information, which you can find in this easy-to-understand book. The authors provide all the advice you’ll require, and the instructive captioned illustrations will show you exactly how to master every aspect of keeping and raising healthy and productive poultry.
