Publisher Comments:

What came first: the chicken or the egg? Thanks to this book, you're about to learn the correct answer to this age-old question-neither. The coop came first. So, if you're planning on keeping chickens, whether it's just a few or a large flock, you'll need a place to house your egg-laying friends. In Art of the Chicken Coop, today's modern farmers-both urban and suburban-will find creative plans and easy-to-follow construction techniques for making seven stylish chicken coops. Experienced farmer, woodworker, and author Chris Gleason delivers a hip eye for design and encouraging instruction that result in attractive and sturdy coops. Practical information on how to properly size your coop and how to use salvaged materials for a cool look that doesn't break your budget are also included. You'll especially enjoy the fun and useful information to help you on your way to being a good flock parent: tips about raising chickens, egg dishes from around the world, recommendations on selecting breeds, and photo- and advice-filled profiles of chicken keepers who live the flock life. After all, if you are embarking on this endeavor to raise chickens-you'll want to do so with knowledge, style, and a smile!
