Thanks for posting this! I have been trying to convince my wife that we need chickens for over a year...maybe this book could help! :)

That sounds pretty cool. I think too that part of being able to have chickens co-exist with a garden is how many chickens to how much space. Obviously an area with a large amount of space and just two or three chickens will do much better.
