Tips For Kids Raising Backyard Chickens

Although there are many, many informative and interesting books for adults about keeping hens, this is the first one I have seen specifically aimed at children aged 3 to 8 and I absolutely loved reading every page.

This is a great book for children to read alone or for adults to read along with younger children; it is fully illustrated in colour with photographs on every page to illustrate the points being made. It is a really attractive book and the information is explanatory and clear. It covers all the basics from preparing a suitable home to receive your chicks, watching them grow up, how to care for them in order to keep them healthy and happy and how to handle them without scaring them.

Sheer magic, and a great way to introduce children to the incredibly fun and rewarding world of keeping hens!
