Keeping Chickens in the Kitchen Garden With 100 RecipesBook - 2015
In addition to tending her family's flock as a child, Signe Langford has kept chickens in her urban yard for almost a decade. Her book is stuffed full of practical advice on keeping the garden both gorgeous and productive and hens happy and healthy. In addition to answering questions about coop construction, year-round egg production and whether or not a rooster is really needed, she covers the best breeds for backyards--from the winter-tough Chantecler to peewee bantams to blue-egg producing Ameraucana. Langford includes dozens of simple and elegant recipes from her own kitchen, as well as contributions from celebrated chefs. Illustrated with beautiful photographs, illustrations and garden plans, Happy Hens and Fresh Eggs is sure to become a favorite of avid and aspiring backyard farmers alike.
