New book on adopting ex-caged hens is out now
The updated and revised 2nd edition of Starting From Scratch – the ex-commercial hen keepers bible – is now available.
Starting From Scratch approaches the adoption and care of ex-commecial hens in a unique way by bringing together a collection of keepers personal experiences. The book is compiled by Eirlys Goode, who is a regular contributor to Pocket Farm and the force behind the cages2coops forum, with foreword by Phil Lymbery, CEO, Compassion in world Farming
The book contains chapters covering every aspect of battery hen husbandry. However, you will find that while some of it’s content is necessarily specific to ex-commercial hens, much of the advice and expertise within could just as easily be applied to other breeds of hen too.
The book is available now for £9.99 including postage and packing from Eirlys Goode. You can pay by Paypal or bank transfer. If you wish to pay by bank transfer (preferred) please contact Eirlys at email@example.com for details. Paypal transfer is to the same email address.
