This is a solid, practical, everything-you-need-to-know guide to keeping chickens for people who are as interested in them as pets as they are in eggs and other poultry produce. It reveals how, as well as being useful, chickens are interesting and colourful characters that can enliven any garden.

They become very tame and make good companions. The book includes chapters on using feathers and eggs in art and craft projects, as well as delicious egg recipes. It fuses contemporary design, imaginative and appealing images and lively, authoritative text to ensure the widest possible interest.
