The book you’ve been waiting for is finally here!
Let’s All Keep Chickens!
The Down-to-Earth-Guide to Natural Practices for Healthier Birds and a Happier World
Words cannot express how excited I am to finally be sharing this book with you. At the risk of tooting my own horn, I have to say that I don’t think there’s another chicken book like this one on the market. Don’t get me wrong, there are so many wonderful chicken books out there. But Let’s All Keep Chickens! is different because my goal is not only to share with you the ins and outs of chicken keeping but also to inspire you to use this age-old practice to enrich not only your life but also the world.
Dalia Monterroso, founder of the popular website Welcome to Chickenlandia, brings a fresh, inclusive voice to the community of backyard chicken keeping with this entry-level guide designed to empower anyone who’s always wanted to keep chickens but may have thought it required special knowledge and a large investment in equipment. Monterroso’s enthusiasm is contagious as she conveys the basics of chicken keeping, with an emphasis on low-cost, natural practices, and shares her belief that humans have an innate ability to care for chickens. Asserting that the backyard chicken community welcomes everyone, she addresses a broad audience, including those in urban and suburban locations. Readers will learn how to plan their flock, how to raise baby chicks, what to look for in a chicken coop, how to keep chickens healthy naturally, and more. Drawing from her own experience as the child of Guatemalan immigrants, Monterroso celebrates how chicken-keeping has been practiced around the world and offers an opportunity to connect with previous generations and transcend cultural, racial, economic, and political divides.
“The real value of this book lies in the author’s core philosophy of being mindful about every aspect of raising chickens… A practical ode to trusting your instincts and loving your chickens.”-Library Journal
