About the Author

Anna Hess dreamed about moving back to the land ever since her parents dragged her off their family farm at the age of eight. She worked as a field biologist and nonprofit organizer before acquiring fifty-eight acres and a husband, then quit her job to homestead full time. She admits that real farm life involves a lot more hard work than her childhood memories entailed, but the reality is much more fulfilling and she loves pigging out on sun-warmed strawberries and experimenting with no-till gardening, mushroom propagation, and chicken pasturing.

She also enjoys writing about the adventures, both on her blog at, and in her books. Her first paperback, The Weekend Homesteader, helped thousands of homesteaders-to-be find ways to fit their dreams into the hours leftover from a full-time job, and The Naturally Bug-Free Garden and Trailersteading will reach bookstores in 2015. In addition, a heaping handful of ebooks serve a similar purpose.

Very informative! All the essential knowledge for incubating eggs and raising successful, healthy chicks. Anna discusses the pros and cons on incubators vs. broody hens, timing your hatches, selecting and distinguishing good eggs from bad eggs, and much more. I love her in-depth descriptions of possible complications and how to deal with them. This book is a down-to-earth version of all of the need-to-know information on hatching and growing your own poultry!
