Book Pre-Order Notice: Fresh Eggs Daily: Raising Happy Healthy Chickens ...Naturally

Coming October 15, 2013 from St. Lynn's Press, Fresh Eggs Daily: Raising Happy, Healthy Chickens...Naturally, my guide to coops, nesting boxes, runs, feed, and natural health care with time-tested remedies promoting the benefits of keeping chickens happy and well-occupied, and in optimal health, free of chemicals and antibiotics, instead using herbs and natural supplements to maintain a healthy environment for your chickens.

Full color photos throughout plus "recipes" and 8 easy DIY projects for your flock, coop and run.  Based on the philosophies that I share on my blog and Facebook page, the book also includes many never-before-published tips and ideas. 

If you are okay dosing your chickens with a cocktail of toxins and chemical medications, lighting your coop in the winter to force your hens to lay more eggs,  routinely worming or treating for parasites when there is no evidence of them, or eating older flock members when they no longer lay, this book might not be for you....but if you name all your chickens, built them a cute coop complete with (gasp!) curtains, plan on keeping them around until they keel over of old age, and are interested in raising them as naturally as possible to ensure the eggs they lay are as healthy for your family as they can be, you will want to have this book on your bookshelf!

Fresh Eggs Daily: The Book is dedicated to all of you, my readers, who through your continued support have clearly shown there is a great demand for natural chicken keeping advice and also confirm for me over and over that it DOES work. I appreciate your notes of gratitude and appreciation more than you could ever know. I also appreciate your understanding and patience this past year while I was working on my book, trying to juggle life as best as I could.

Now available for pre-order from any of these online booksellers:
