This book is an interesting look at how chickens are regulated throughout the United States as well as a good beginner's guide to hen-keeping. Anderson is a local Boise author and chicken farmer. Since we've decided to get some chickens this seemed to be the perfect book to read and blog about.
First, we learned that they need to be in a brooder box with easily accessible food and water. Then we learned that they didn't really like going outside when they are little. Now that they are 9 weeks old, we've discovered that they like their coop and that we still have awhile before they will be laying eggs.
