More than ever, Americans care about the quality and safety of the food they eat. They're bringing back an American tradition: raising their own backyard chickens for eggs and companionship. And they care about the quality of life of their chickens. Fresh Eggs Daily is an authoritative, accessible guide to coops, nesting boxes, runs, breeding, feed, and natural health care with time-tested remedies. The author promotes the benefits of keeping chickens happy and well-occupied, and in optimal health, free of chemicals and antibiotics. She emphasizes the therapeutic value of herbs and natural supplements to maintaining a healthy environment for your chickens. Includes many ""recipes"" and 8 easy DIY projects for the coop and run. Full color photos throughout. The USDA's new study of urban chicken raising sees a 400% increase in backyard chickens over the next 5 years, driven by younger adults."

Reviews

Lisa Steele knows firsthand that keeping a flock clean, comfortable, and well fed is 90% of good preventive chicken medicine. Her common sense tips promote a fulfilling life for both the flock and the flock keeper. -Julie Gauthier, DVM, author of Chicken Health for Dummies Proof of Lisa's know-how in raising chickens naturally is evident in her GRIT blogs, where she covers everything from health care tips and homemade remedies to helpful advice about her chicken coops, nesting boxes and runs - and now she does the same in her new book, Fresh Eggs Daily. We're proud to call Lisa a member of our online family and an asset to our community. -Traci Smith, associate editor, GRIT and CAPPER'S magazines With so many chicken resources popping up all the time, it's hard to know who to listen to. Fresh Eggs Daily is a one-stop shop for anyone looking to learn more about the hobby of keeping a flock. Lisa does her homework. As longtime chicken eggsperts ourselves, we can vouch for the accuracy of information she puts out there. -Jess Murray, Meyer Hatchery Lisa is passionate about promoting what, in England, we call "the good life: - a life close to Nature and one where self-sufficiency is paramount. She is a one-woman dynamo and an inspiration. -Simon McEwan, content editor, Your Chickens and Country Smallholding magazines, Great Britain I love this book. Period. It's light, it's fun, it's informative with information and recipes, and it is clearly written by someone who has an education in this field of knowledge. I can't wait to read it all over again and have it on my bookshelf rather than dashing to the internet to try and "help" my chickens. -Amy, blogger at The Fewell Homestead (www.thefewellhomestead.com) This is a great book to have if you have chickens ? we have used it multiple times as a reference when we have questions about one of the ladies.--Joanna Taylor Stone "Next Gen House Blog " "With so many chicken resources popping up all the time, it's hard to know who to listen to.
