  • EGGS AND CHICKENS E-BOOK

    When was the last time you tasted a really fresh egg? Most commercially produced eggs spend time in storage and become stale. There’s a big difference, too, between poultry raised commercially and raised at home. Commercial eating birds live out their brief spans in totally artificial surroundings, but home-grown chickens can result in better flavor and firmer texture.

    With the help of this e-handbook, you can have eggs and poultry with a flavor — and at a cost — to be found in no supermarket. Chapters include:

    • Chicken Breeds
    • Brooding and Early Care
    • Henhouse Furniture
    • Feeders
    • Producing Your Own Feed

    A handy reference for anyone who wants to raise chickens for meat and eggs. 30 pages.
