The newly released book, Gardening with Chickens, by Lisa Steele combines my two favorite hobbies. It blends chicken keeping with gardening in an original and purposeful way that will open up your eyes to new possibilities. If you are looking to raise a healthy flock, this book covers gardening for optimal egg production, edibles to avoid planting and herbs to add to nesting boxes.
Spring is right around the corner, so this is the perfect time to start your planning. This book will assist you in finding the perfect spot for your garden. You will also be guided on how to start seeds, and the pages are filled with multiple landscaping ideas. There is a whole section dedicated to gardening in the spring! Just as every poultry lover does, I enjoy watching the chickens nosh on freshly grown micro greens, wheat grass, marigolds and herbs. It’s always rewarding to be able to provide your pets with freshly grown plants. One day soon, I would love to have multiple gardens dedicated to chickens, and this is the perfect guide!
