City Chicks: Keeping Micro-flocks of Chickens as Garden Helpers, Compost Creators, Bio-recyclers and Local Food Suppliers

Chickens have become the mascot of the local food movement. A desire for sustainable, clean, wholesome food and superior soil quality has led more and more suburban and city dwellers to keep laying hens in their back yards and gardens. Across America municipalities are allowing, and even encouraging, residents to keep laying hens within city limits. This book can help you learn how you can have fresh, heart-healthy eggs, daily from your backyard and employ your chicken’s “skill sets” as garden workers, organic pesticiders, herbiciders, fertilizer, compost creators and top soil enhancers.
