Keeping a few hens was once only for rural dwellers with big yards, or inner-city hippies. Now it's mainstream and when it comes to these fluffy little recycling units that eat weeds, bugs and scraps and turn them into organic eggs—what's not to love? With pictures of these extravagant looking birds throughout, this book is the perfect reference, whether you're already keeping chickens or an absolute beginner thinking about getting a couple of chooks. Dave Ingham offers advice on how to start, housing and feeding, settling chickens in with other pets, troubleshooting, and the (minimal) commitment required to keep your backyard hens healthy and happy.
