    I plan to have chicks next Spring. Having this book before hand will be a wonderful tool to make sure I do it right the first time. I appreciate that Kathy never wavers in her advice. The information she provides on her live feeds matches everything in the book. There is no back and forth.
    The book is easy to read and I recommend it for anyone thinking of getting chickens or who already has them and has been “winging” it.

    I love this book! Straightforward, sensible, funny — Kathy makes chicken keeping pretty easy if you follow her guidelines. Everything she has recommended, from her easy peel hard boiled eggs, to her heated cookie tin waterer, has worked perfectly, and that kind of honesty REALLY has meaning for me.

    If Kathy says it, she’s researched it, tried it, and therefore I trust that it will be best for my chickens.

    I highly recommend this book.
