Publisher's Summary

Learn why cool people like Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts, and Tom Brady all keep chickens as pets!
How would you like to have an omelette made with fresh eggs every morning?
By keeping chickens in your backyard that dream can become reality. Raising backyard chickens is taking the world by storm. And rightfully so!
These girls are really amazing. They require only the minimum in terms of food and care, yet they give back so much. Backyard chickens are so intelligent and it really is just a matter of time before one of them wakes up and decides to take over the world. So join the fun of raising backyard chickens now, before it is too late!
Jokes aside, backyard farming is truly great. Not only do these free range chickens produce a steady, daily supply of fresh eggs, no, they also love to help you out with your leftovers and they are excellent pest deterrents!
One thing that few ever think of is how stress just evaporates in the presence of a healthy chicken flock. Sitting in your backyard and hearing the chickens talk to each other - it is so relaxing after a day at work! Caring for free chickens might just be the best way to recover from a burn-out. They have a soft clucking sound as they go about their business. It is quite soothing to the soul, and if you don't watch out, it can put you right to sleep in that garden swing.
With this audiobook, you will learn everything you need to know to become the DIY backyard homestead master of free range chicken gardens. Hmm, wait, that wouldn't sound too cool at birthday parties. But imagine this: how would you like to open your wallet to hand out a business card that has "backyard chicken farmer" written on it? Now that's something!
Here is a preview of what you will learn:

The benefits of keeping chickens in your backyard
How to select the right chicken breed
How to build a chicken coop (or should you buy one?)
What to feed your chickens
How to keep your girls safe from predators
How to prevent chicken diseases and keep your flock healthy
How to incubate chicken eggs
Dealing with city laws and hesitating neighbors (tip: give them free eggs!)

Sound good? Then let's get started! Your life is about to change.

short and basic

This book is very short and contains only the most basic information for brand new chicken owners. It also advocates burning trash, which is an environmental hazard.

What fun!

An aspiring chicken keeper here! I believe both newbies and people who have been keepin chicken for several years will still benefit from this audiobook. I get to listen to it while driving and continue it during supper. It’s fun listening to it and made me more excited to finish my study and build my own chicken coop!

Great deal of tips

Gotten a great deal of tips for that 1 hr. and 12 min. of listening to Rhea Margrave. It’s obvious that she’s an expert in this field. The book has been thorough from the advantages of keeping chickens in the backyard to handling city laws.
