Details

Chickens are the hottest new backyard '_pet'_! It seems that every Tom, Dick, and Susan wants to raise chickens in his or her backyard, whether that yard is one square foot or one hundred. There'_s nothing more local than an egg freshly laid right in your own yard. But what should you expect when you'_re adopting a couple of day-old chicks? In Chick Days, Jenna Woginrich, award-winning author of Made from Scratch, the homesteading memoir for the twenty-something generation, offers a highly entertaining and informative photographic guide for today'_s fledgling chick parent. Fun for the complete newbie and for families with young children, Chick Days chronicles the journey of three chickens from newly hatched fluffy butterballs to grown hens laying eggs. Day by day and week by week, readers watch the three starring chickens grow and change, learning about chicken behavior, feeding requirements, housing, hygiene, and healthcare essentials, and fun facts on all things poultry. As Jenna herself says, '_Chickens are more than 12-piece buckets, country diner kitsch, and egg whites. They'_re your backyard ambassadors to healthier eating and basic husbandry. Keeping chickens is a crash course in local eating. When you start collecting eggs you'_ll be eating so local you'_ll know the amount of cracked corn in the feeder at ground zero of your breakfast .
