I have been scouring the internet for common sense tips on bringing up chickens, from coop building, run maintenance to favouite foods to foot problems. I have learnt a lot and with a huge dollop of common sense, the garden is now chicken heaven.
But along the way I came across this wonderful book by Jill Winger from the USA. The Prairie Homestead is a practical blog and the first of a few sites I will be reviewing as I research. It answered a few tricky queries I had on feed and also ideas for the well-being of my 12 girls. Available to download. Well worth having a gander, or in my case a chicken or two!
The book covers all aspects of homesteading, including goats and cows.
