Storey S Guide To Raising Chickens In The Backyard


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens in the Backyard Seventeen years ago, when I first started a backyard flock - I had just two hens back then - if someone told me that I would write a book about how to manage a flock, I would've laughed. But here we are! I started writing this book in July 2018, and after almost two years, it's ready. Consider this book a practical, easy-to-read guide for both beginners and experts that also includes helpful summaries at the end of each chapter. Who is this book for? If you are a beginner and don't know yet if you should start raising chickens or have a farm at all, this book is going to help you learn all of the pros and cons of this type of activity. If you think that keeping chickens is difficult, you are right: it really is difficult and the goal of this book is to tell you as much as possible about raising chickens, warn you about potential issues, and offer you tips on the most efficient way to start. If you are already experienced at poultry keeping and know enough to successfully raise chickens, you are going to be able to find many notes from my personal experience and based on my own mistakes, which are going to help you to avoid them as well as learn something new. For easier reading, I highlighted certain tips and information: Mistakes I made in my own backyard homestead. Life hacks I stumbled upon from my own experience. Some historical information, just as useful context. And throughout the book, you'll find footnotes to help you understand unfamiliar words or jargon. This book is a compilation of my seventeen years of experience of raising chickens. I wrote this so you didn't have to undergo a similarly long path to find out all these tips. All you need is just a few hours with this book. I believe that the personal experiences I've shared with you, along with the comprehensive information on raising chickens, will help newbies start their own healthy backyard flock and will deliver new valuable information to even the most experienced breeders. A a fool learns only from his own mistakes. A wise man learns from the mistakes of others. (Otto von Bismarck) Check the uncovered book fragment and buy it now with 1-click!
