After reading this book, I LOVE hens!!
November 22, 2012
If you ever thought of raising hens for eggs and you like to garden, this is the book for you. If you love looking at beautifully photographed chickens in gorgeous gardens, this book is for you. If you love looking at pictures, this book is for you. After viewing the pictures about five times, I finally started reading... and this is an incredible resource of information. Now I have picked out my chicken coop -- gypsy-wagon-style. I'll be getting Plymouth Barred Rocks as these hens are highly intelligent, large in size, leaders of the flock, and incredibly talkative lap chickens that will survive the Kenai Peninsular winters up here in Alaska.
Pros: very well written, good overview of hen husbandry., offers various different points of view., the best photographs i've seen of mother hens., well researched. good interviews.
Cons: wish she had interviewed three time more people.
