Survival with Backyard Chickens Calls for This Comprehensive Manual

A town near where I live passed an ordinance allowing residents to keep up to six hens in their yards. They don’t want roosters, probably because they’re noisy. Raising chickens in towns and cities has been growing in popularity, perhaps because of the economy, or maybe it’s just trendy.

Numerous books and magazine articles exist for those raising chickens, whether in town or on the farm. A book I saw recommended is How to Raise Chickens, by Christine Heinrichs, and I thought I’d bring it to your attention. It’s a comprehensive manual for novices and veterans alike, written in straightforward language, so I’ve made it my DestinySurvival Pick of the Week.

Why not get this book and make plans for having your own backyard chickens? If you’re not already raising chickens, a book such as this puts it all together for you. No Internet surfing required. It’s favorably reviewed.

It’s more than a primer. It contains history, caring for common and rare breeds, and much more. There are plenty of photos and helpful charts.

Get How to Raise Chickens by clicking on its title in this post. That takes you to the page featuring the book, and you can place your order there. Whether you’re thinking about raising chickens for eggs or meat, or you want to show them, this book will give you what you need to know.
