  • 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.

  • EPIC EGGS

    This isn't a typical egg cookbook or guide to raising chickens, Epic Eggs takes a deep dive on the eggs themselves and tells you how to raise birds that will produce the best eggs you've ever seen. It may be true that most poultry found on small homesteads or in backyards especially are viewed as pets, but they are inarguably pets with benefits--namely eggs. In Epic Eggs, homesteader and writer Jennifer Sartell looks at the eggs of the most common types of poultry you’d find in your backyard: chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, guineas, and quail. Don’t jump to conclusions! This isn’t an egg cookbook or a guide to raising poultry. Sartell delves into the eggs themselves and explains reproductive systems, egg anatomy, and how and why different colors are distributed to egg shells. Sartell will show you a variety breeds of birds, and what sizes, shapes, and even colors of egg they produce; from white to blue, brown, chocolate, olive, and speckled, plus heritage breeds and how to breed for specific colors. Illustrated with fantastic color photography of eggs and their birds, Epic Eggs goes on to address how to optimize living conditionsand diet for the healthiest and most-flavorful eggs, the process of grading and storing eggs, and the eternal washing debate. There’s also discussion of nutrition, baking, cooking, preserving, pickling, and dehydrating. The book ends with advice for homesteaders looking to create business plans and a section on troubleshooting.
