Chicken keeping pure and simple : a fun, friendly guide to backyard chicken keeping / Nikki Husted.

Husted, Nikki, (author.).


Keeping chickens can look almost glamorous online. It’s all beautiful chickens, cute baby chicks, and coops that look nice enough to spend the night in. The reality is that keeping chickens is rewarding—but also a lot of work and, well, poop cleanup. If you follow her online, you already know that Nikki shares the good, the bad, and the ugly of this popular hobby. In her first book, she remains unfiltered while she shares the essential techniques and helpful stories from her own experience with backyard chickens. That’s right: you can learn from her own successes and mistakes! With instructive photos and helpful tips throughout, this is the perfect book whether you’re just getting started with chickens or still dreaming of your first flock.
