    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.  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 and natural supplements to maintaining a healthy environment for your chickens. Includes many "recipes" and  8 easy DIY projects for the coop and run. Full color photos throughout. The USDA's new study of urban chicken raising sees a 400% increase in backyard chickens over the next 5 years, driven by younger adults.

    "Excellent quick read and resource."
    Pros - More natural approach to minding ones flock.
    Cons - None
    This is one of the go to resource books I have used that was not overwhelming.There are may natural organic remedies and recipes I have incorporated, such as, seasonal herb gardening and cleaning ideas to keep the flock healthy. The Breakfast of Champions has been quite a hit with my girls.

    "I adore this book."
    Pros - Great Information, inexpensive, all natural, extremely helpful
    Cons - Not a single one!
    I bought this book a few years back after having three of my girls unexpectedly fall ill and pass away. I was trying to find out ways to diagnose, treat, and prevent illness and this book was a god send. I've read the whole thing at least 5 times over I even put tabs on certain pages for easy access. Ever since I began incorporating herbs into my hens diets I haven't had a single one fall ill, absolutely incredible. Not to mention my hens absolutely love their new diet, I also started incorporating the advice from this book with new chicks and it was wonderful! I can't express enough how helpful this book has been to me and my flock I one hundred percent recommend it and believe every chicken owner should read it. [​IMG]
