City Chicks
Keeping Micro-flocks of Laying Hens as Garden Helpers, Compost Makers, Bio-recyclers and Local Food Suppliers
Patricia Foreman
ISBN: 978-0-9624648-0-5
460 pages.
$ 22.50
Chickens have become the mascot of the local food movement. A desire for sustainable, clean, wholesome food and superior soil quality has led more and more suburban and city dwellers to keep laying hens in their backyards and gardens. City Chicks is not just another book about chickens, although it does describe how to keep micro-flocks of laying hens. It has the ambitious intent of exploring three subjects: urban agriculture systems, recycling food and yard waste, and using local resources to preserve and enhance the environment. This is a book that sees chicken-raising as much more than an avian hobby interest. It’s a book for our times.

COUNTRYSIDE is the truly original country magazine (established 1917) serving that branch of the Voluntary Simplicity movement seeking greater self-reliance (homesteading), with emphasis on home food production. This includes gardening, small-scale livestock, cooking, food preservation, resource conservation, recycling, frugality, money management, alternative energy, old-time skills, home business, and
much more.
COUNTRYSIDE features reader-written personal experiences and photos straight out of family albums, making each issue just like a long letter from friends who are living the good life, beyond the sidewalks.



  Toil, feel, think, hope; you will be sure to dream enough before you die without arranging for it.
