Keeping Chickens, 2nd Edition is the perfect introduction to small flock poultry keeping. Not only are chickens useful (as both a food source and as consumers of weeds in the yard), but they are interesting and colorful creatures that make good pets and can enliven any garden. The book covers everything potential chicken farmers need to know about housing, feeding and welfare, plus it includes a section full of great egg recipes. Lively, authoritative text and a gorgeous gallery of chicken images make this book appealing to both casual and avid chicken enthusiasts.
Finally backyard farmers who want to keep a few hens for eggs have a bible that's attractive enough to leave out on the coffee table, and inexpensive enough to purchase on a whim. This comprehensive guide, written in charming prose from the perspective of an organic farmer, will appeal to readers who are interested in raising chickens, or simply want the best knowledge about how to cook them. With this in mind, farmer and animal expert Jennifer Megyesi discusses all the basic details of raising the birds-general biology, health, food, choosing breeds, and so on-and she cuts through the smoke to identify what terms like "organic," "free-range," and so on really mean for poultry farmers and consumers. No chicken book would be complete without information on how to show chickens for prizes, and this is no different, but The Joy of Keeping Chickens also stresses the importance of self-sustainability and organic living, and the satisfaction of keeping heirloom breeds. Readers will appreciate the comprehensive nature of this readable, informative guide, and Megyesi's enthusiasm about keeping chickens. Coupled with Geoff Hansen's gorgeous full-color photographs, this text makes for an instant classic in the category.
