Living with Chickens : Everything You Need to Know to Raise Your Own Backyard Flock Paperback

Description

Millions of people enjoy raising these birds, whether for food or companionship - this indispensible guide will show them exactly how to do this in a relaxed way to ensure the best results. 'Chickens have a charm that affects even those with no bird experience,' promises author and longtime chicken aficionado Jay Rossier.

The lush, full-colour photographs accompanying his text attest to that, as do 'folksy' anecdotes from real-life chicken farmers.

Straightforward text and plenty of clear, detailed illustrations offer advice on everything from choosing the best birds for your needs to suggestions for building a well-ventilated, windowed coop.

The book also contains Rossier's field-tested tips on: hatching eggs; raising contented chicks; keeping your birds healthy; homemade versus commercial grain; involving your whole family in this pastime; With a comprehensive resource section, this is the only poultry book you will ever need.
