Many gardeners fear chickens will peck away at their landscape, and chicken lovers often shy away from gardening for the same reason. But you can keep chickens and have a beautiful garden, too! In this essential handbook, award-winning garden designer Jessi Bloom offers step-by-step instructions for creating a beautiful and functional space and maintaining a happy, healthy flock. Free-Range Chicken Gardens covers everything a gardener needs to know, from the basics of chicken keeping and getting them acclimated to the garden, to how to create the perfect chicken-friendly garden design and build innovative coops.

I just spent a long time perusing this book in the bookstore. It's beautiful and very informative. I've ordered a copy, and cannot wait to receive it. We live in a very small city, with a very small yard, and this lovely book has so many tips and bits of information as well as entertainment, not to mention being filled with wonderful pictures. I had wondered just how to arrange my gardens now that the hens have de~greened the whole thing, and I have lots of ideas to explore now! Highly recommeded!
