Beginning and intermediate chicken keepers don’t need to spend hours poring through extensive manuals and thick books because Carissa Bonham has boiled down chicken-keeping basics into 101 easy-to-understand and easy-to-apply tips, tricks, and chicken hacks.

Her advice ranges from learning how to grow your flock despite having a broody hen to directions for making a nesting box herb blend that will keep pests at bay (and keep the coop smelling fresh). Other tips touch on:

  • Introducing new chicks into the flock
  • Making a predator-proof, all-weather coop
  • Using your chickens to get your garden ready in the spring
  • And much more!

Having raised a variety of chickens both inside her home and with the help of broody chicken moms, author Bonham is ready to share her chicken-keeping advice with others looking to add the joy of poultry to their lives. Her approach focuses on keeping hens happy using natural methods, so you can spend less time doing the dirty work and more time enjoying your flock.
