Chicken & Egg: An Egg-Centric Guide to Raising Poultry

Author(s): James Hermes


The urban chicken movement shows no sign of abating, with home-raised hens considered the poster girls of the urban farming and buy local campaigns. In the US, many states have overturned laws that made the keeping of backyard poultry illegal and embraced the new generation of small-scale egg producers. Chicken & Egg is designed for this broad readership, but with a determinedly egg-centric focus. It offers a complete reference to raising chickens and other poultry purely for their eggs, from choosing the best-laying breeds, to understanding broody behaviour, to producing the most colourful egg selections. Featuring art worked guides to the top twenty breeds, and Why Did The Chicken...? problem-solving panels, it is both gorgeous gift and essential reference.
