Keeping Chickens

As many urban homesteaders have discovered, backyard chickens are a great source of sustainable, nutritious food for your family and a hands-on way to educate children about the source of what they eat. Author Ashley English shares the essential information you'll need to start and maintain your own flock, from choosing a suitable breed to how to clean, house and care for chickens. The book also includes plans for building sound chicken structures, nine delicious recipes for using your collected eggs, and color photographs that evoke the joy of raising chickens in your own backyard. Hardcover, 136 pages.

Good solid information
December 22, 2012
We joined the group of back yard chicken owners this Spring. This was one of two books I read cover to cover, though I read magazines, the Internet and parts of other books I purchased. This was my favorite, the other book I sold back to the seller because I found it didn't offer a great deal of information. I found this to be an entertaining read with good photos and good info. covering the day to day of chicken care. it also includes recipes. I made the frittata which was very good. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in keeping chickens.

PICK-A-CHICK
July 2, 2012
Keeping Chickens is a must have book if you are a first time or want to be a chicken owner. I have several other raising chicken books and they give a lot of unnecessary information. This book is plain and simple and is fun to read.
We are in the process of building our chicken house and play yard and next will be buying the chickens, so this book have given us the information we need.
