The ultimate guide to keeping chickens in your backyard.

The more obvious rewards of chicken ownership - like delicious fresh eggs daily and fabulous cost-free fertiliser - are well known. Chickens even help keep the number of pest insects in your garden. But there are other benefits too, not least of which is the endless entertainment you get watching them scratch, peck, socialise and preen.

This book includes all the information you need to keep your very own chickens: How to choose a breed suited to your needs, space and climate; How to choose and build or buy a coop; How to care for your chickens; and How to breed chicks successfully.

Keeping Chickens will show you how easy, fun and satisfying owning chooks can be.
