This friendly introduction to keeping chickens will appeal to all who are interested in simple living and self sufficiency - currently very popular. Here is the perfect beginner's guide to raising chickens, with information on choosing a breed, acquiring the chicks, and housing, feeding and caring for them. Plus, it provides the low-down on eggs, including recipes and profiles of people who have taken on the chicken-rearing challenge. It includes two projects with exploded woodworking illustrations and photos: a simple nesting box and a wildly creative mobile chicken tractor.
