    A great guide to raising heritage poultry in your backyard

    Christine Heinrichs has been raising heritage fowl for years, and she's applied her journalistic skill to share her hobby with others in an effort to help protect the diverse breeds of birds in an age of mass production. I appreciated Heinrichs' sustainable advice throughout the book, with tips on building comfortable water and fertilizer conserving coops as well as details of each breed's natural habitat and needs. I especially like the matter-of-fact way she addresses the fact that some people will be eating the birds they raise. I know that's a fact of life, but I think it would be sad to eat a creature you'd raised. Perhaps eggs are different, since you don't make friends with them... I sent a note to the author and asked what her personal preferences are on the issue:

    "Personally, I do not eat anyone I have known by name. I haven't ever eaten anyone I've known in person. Eggs are another story, although it's certainly possible to get sentimental about them, too. I mean, the chicken misses them. I'm not a vegetarian, but I don't eat a lot of any kind of meat."

    You'll enjoy this book for its excellent advice on the various personalities, spectacular beauty and needs of various off-beat fowl, and you'll especially appreciate this hands-on, definitive guide if you're considering hosting a rare breed of fowl in your own backyard.
