Fresh Eggs Daily: Raising Happy, Healthy Chickens... Naturally

Lisa Steele (Author)


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, feed, and natural health care - with time-tested remedies from a fifth generation chicken keeper who has more than a decade of experience under her belt following her own simple and practical advice.

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, edible flowers and natural supplements to maintaining a healthy environment for your backyard flock. Her tips and advice will benefit the first-time chicken keeper and seasoned veteran alike.

This is one of those "especially for now" kinds of books, when food security is appearing on our to-do lists.
