When Lisa Steele from Fresh Eggs Daily asked me if I would like to participate in The Fresh Eggs Daily Blog Tour for her new book, Fresh Eggs Daily: Raising Happy, Healthy Chickens… Naturally, I didn’t have to think twice. Instead, I jumped at the chance to receive a copy of the book to review along with an autographed copy to give away to one of our lucky readers.
Lisa has been a trusted friend and mentor for well over a year. I have been following the progress of her work on this book since it became a reality last year. I have often joked with her that I was as excited as she was to finally see her book in person!
Last week, these beautiful books were waiting for me in our mailbox. From the moment I saw the cover, I couldn’t wait to read it from start to finish. As I read, I recognized the hallmark style that I have come to expect from Fresh Eggs Daily. The whole book was warm in tone and presented the information in an encouraging manner.
The information was extensive, covering a range of topics from planning your first chicken coop, natural strategies for the daily maintenance of your flock and discouraging pests of all kinds. Common chicken keeping challenges such as molting, coop cleaning, and potentially dangerous foods and plants are also covered in detail.
If you’re a Fresh Eggs Daily fan like I am, then you’re already familiar with their collection of posts containing tips and suggestions for raising and tending your flock naturally. I am constantly learning new techniques from their blog and Facebook page and sharing their content on our own page.
Now Lisa’s natural chicken keeping knowledge has been assembled into a beautiful book. Fresh Eggs Daily: Raising Happy, Healthy Chickens…Naturally will teach you how to implement effective and simple strategies like drying herbs fresh from your garden for use all year long. Lisa offers common sense tips for helping prepare your flock for Mother Nature’s extremes and handling inevitable chicken keeping challenges. She also includes several recipes for natural concoctions and several DIY projects including creating your own brooder. This book covers such a wide variety of topics that it is sure to be your go to chicken keeping resource for years to come.
I wish that I had been able to add Fresh Eggs Daily: Raising Happy, Healthy Chickens…Naturally to my bookshelf when I was beginning my journey as a chicken keeper. Within the pages of this book, I would have found the information I needed to ensure that our first flock had the very best chance of thriving here on our farm.
Luckily, I can add it to my chicken keeper’s library now and so can you. Whether you are in the beginning stages of planning to become a chicken keeper, tending to your first chicks, or have already earned your chicken keeping stripes, I know that you will enjoy reading this book as much as I did.
To make this giveaway even more exciting, I’m adding one of our 1840 Farm handmade fabric coiled egg baskets to the prize pack. While all of our baskets are unique, this one is a true original. It was designed in the color scheme of Fresh Eggs Daily: Raising Happy, Healthy Chickens…Naturally and features fabrics in Wedgewood blue, chocolate brown, tan, and garnet red with butter yellow stitching.
