5.0 out of 5 stars American in outlook but so what?, 20 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Free-Range Chicken Gardens: How to Create a Beautiful, Chicken-Friendly Yard (Paperback)
I don't often take the time to review my purchases (there are a LOT - especially in the book department) but I am so happy with this one!

As another reviewer stated, it is indeed American in outlook and there is mention of local regulations etc which would not apply this side of the Pond. However, as far as I am concerned, a garden is pretty much a garden and a chicken pretty much a chicken!

It's a great book to leaf through in bed in the middle of the winter when the wind and rain are howling outside and you can plan/dream of what you are going to do in the Spring.

I have a very small garden which is divided into thirds - the Chicken Garden, the Vegetable Garden and the grassy bit! Having read this book I have decided that instead of segregating my two chooks I will adapt the garden to suit them. The book gives lots of ideas about what to plant which will survive their not-so-tender attentions and ideas for those who want to build their own chicken coop etc.
I am currently working on protecting the veggies from the chickens when I plant them - and the chickens are working hard to rake, weed, debug and fertilise the raised veggie beds.

Sounds like a plan? Works for me and this book is a great help and inspiration - American or not.
