Raising Chickens for Dummies

It's FINALLY here! Do you have any idea how hard it is for me to keep a secret? Especially a secret that has anything to do about my chickens? I mean really, you know I can just go on and on and on about chickens. And if you don't know that you must have just stumbled upon this blog accidentally. Because everybody around here knows that chickens have consumed my life.

Luckily, via the power of the Internet, I know I'm not the only one. Nope. There are thousands of folks crazy 'bout chickens just like me. And bunches of them hang out at a place called BackyardChickens.com to cuss and discuss all things chicken. It's the mother load of chicken know how.

Recently Rob, the website owner, teamed up with Wiley publishing and Kimberly Willis to produce Raising Chickens for Dummies. Everything you ever wanted to know about raising chickens in your own backyard in one concise handbook. Brilliant!

If you're interested in starting your own flock or maybe you already have some chooks, you should buy a copy. And if you take a gander at page 93 you will see a remarkable rendition of our very own chicken garden! Yes folks. Old One-Eyed Calico Jack's bachelor pad has been published!

I must point out that other than a free copy of the book I get nothing by way of compensation. However I'm sure Rob does and he's got some adorable little girls and some chickens to feed so go buy a copy. And if you aren't already a member of BackyardChickens.com go sign up now and you can see more details about our chicken garden and lots of others.

What would any of us backyard-chicken people do without backyardchickens.com? Really, it's THE best. I linked to them last week when our Maple had a bit of an emergency that made it onto our blog.
