Author Janet Garman and her family live on their family farm in Maryland, where they raise vegetables and a variety of animals for fiber, eggs, meat and companionship. Janet has written this book from her wealth of knowledge gained by hands on chicken husbandry.
Janet believes that once you learn the basics, raising chickens will be an enjoyable and rewarding experience. In Chickens from Scratch you will learn how and where to purchase your chicks, how to house, feed and care for them and ultimately enjoy the delicious fresh eggs the chickens will provide for your family.
I found her book to be an easy and informative read, as did the oldest country kid, who is 8. He read it cover to cover!! The book is filled with insightful details, photographs, and suggestions to help you along on your chicken raising journey. I am also honored that in the back of the book, on her list of reputable resources for chicken information, my blog is listed. What an honor!
Janet also has a successful Blog and Facebook page by the name Timber Creek Farm, where she shares her daily farm adventures. I highly recommend both sites for homesteading information and wonderful photographs. Janet's book can be purchased directly from her website just in case you don't win a copy. *wink*
