I live in Ireland with my husband of 7 years who encouraged me to pursue writing full time. I have always loved to write and read. My writing reflects my heart and soul …me. I have 4 children who are the light of my life and 4 beautiful grandchildren who are, of course,perfect. I had a step-son with a beautiful spirit named Kjell ( ‘shell’) who was called home in 2008. There are also Zara, Mollie and Dixie small dogs who rule the roost in our home.

This book give very broad information about chickens. I found it appropriate for a child, but not someone who is serious about raising backyard chickens. No mention about moulting during which period hens do not lay eggs; could have been more specific about common dual breeds. And, boiled egg shells are a very appropriate way of giving chickens calcium and going "green" without being "unethical"
Most of the book is recipes not information on how to take care of chickens. But cute stories and the author seems to love the subject she is writing about, as she should.
The booklet didn't give many quantitative facts, just basic adive and some egg recipes. Not good for a beginner looking for facts about owning chickens.
