Gardening with chickens : plans and plants for you and your hens / Lisa Steele.

Steele, Lisa, 1965- (author.).


If the title has you thinking of dressing your chickens in garden boots and gloves, think again! Steele gives you strategies for using your chickens to aerate and till the soil, and their waste products as compost. And did you know that feeding your chickens certain plants will result in orange egg yolks? Or that onions contain a toxin that, in excess, will destroy red blood cells and can cause death in hens? If you're thinking of combining chicken keeping with gardening, there are things you need to know!
