Stay tuned for a free download this Thursday, July 12th. My new e-booklet, entitled Best Chicken Breeds, will be offered for free that day on Amazon. This new book makes a great supplement to Backyard Chickens for Beginners, the comprehensive beginner's guide to raising chickens in your yard, which has been a smash hit.
Best Chicken Breeds covers 12 breeds of chickens that lay lots of eggs, have friendly and calm temperaments, and can fit in small, city backyards. There is a lot of information on chicken breeds online, most of it for free, but it took me many hours to research everything, sort through all this raw material, and synthesize it into what I really wanted: some good recommendations for the best backyard egg layers and pets.
Did you know there are 175 different kinds of chickens? I narrowed down this list to 12 breeds that make the best backyard egg layers and have nice personalities. As a BONUS, I am including an overview of 5 additional breeds of exotic poultry chickens that also are suitable for raising in backyards.
It took me a long time to learn about all the various breeds. Rather than make you go through the same trouble, I am sharing my findings with you in this short e-booklet. If your time is worth more than $1 per hour, then I believe you'll find this book is worth its modest price.
And this Thursday, you can get the new e-booklet for free. Just click on my author name at the top of this screen and it should show you my list of titles, including this one. I hope you enjoy the book and find it useful!
