Publisher Comments:

More than ever, Americans care about the quality and safety of the food they eat. They're bringing back an American tradition: raising their own backyard chickens for eggs and companionship. And they care about the quality of life of their chickens. Fresh Eggs Daily is an authoritative, accessible guide to coops, nesting boxes, runs, breeding, feed, and natural health care with time-tested remedies.  The author promotes the benefits of keeping chickens happy and well-occupied, and in optimal health, free of chemicals and antibiotics. She emphasizes the therapeutic value of herbs and natural supplements to maintaining a healthy environment for your chickens. Includes many ""recipes"" and  8 easy DIY projects for the coop and run. Full color photos throughout.

The USDA's new study of urban chicken raising sees a 400% increase in backyard chickens over the next 5 years, driven by younger adults.

This book and the author are the epitome of how one is inspired by other sources and demonstrates actively not giving credit. With all the glowing reviews previously reported, there is one recent review by a recognized authority in poultry, "Gail Damerov" in the May/June issue of Backyard Poultry Magazine. Ms. Damerov goes on at great length that the book and this author have little credibility and in fact she cites several instances where the author gives patently incorrect advice. The only thing Ms Damerov says this book does well? "it feels good in your hand"

This author claims to be an herbalist. And that is after completing only a 10 month online education class. How insulting to the true herbalists in this world who have spent entire lifetimes studying the craft. This newbie author should be ashamed of herself. She borders on fraud. Save your money unless you just want pretty pictures and writing on par with a nursery school book.
