Everybody wants happy hens! If you want to know how to look after hens, this henkeeping companion to the bestselling Backyard Bees, covers everything you need to know about keeping chickens, even if you live in the city or suburbs.

Keeping a few hens was once only for rural dwellers with big yards – or inner-city hippies. Now it’s mainstream and an attractive proposition wherever you live. Fluffy little recycling units that eat weeds, bugs and scraps and turn them into organic eggs – what’s not to love?

Chickens are great backyard pets for young and old – they’re a natural extension for everyone with a vegie patch, and for those who like eggs but are concerned about the welfare of commercial hens.

This beautiful hardcover book is the perfect reference, whether you’re already keeping chickens or an absolute beginner thinking about getting a couple of chooks. Dave Ingham offers compulsively readable advice on how to start, housing and feeding, settling chickens in with other pets, troubleshooting, and the (minimal) commitment required to keep your backyard hens healthy and happy.

‘This book is the what for, how to, where and why of chickens for novices and wranglers alike.’ – Costa Georgiadis, ABC Gardening Australia
