One of the things that I am most known for on Instagram is the beautiful eggs that my chickens lay. (You can check out the hash tag #theforestcantinaCHICKENS to see more). When we first got chickens for their eggs, I didn't think I would love them as much as I do as animals. They are lots of fun and a real pleasure to keep. We have 13 chickens and 10 different breeds. There is a 'how to guide' to keeping keeping backyard chickens in my book 'The Forest Cantina - Home'. The guid covers choosing a chicken house, choosing breeds, what to feed chickens, general care, egg production and how to look after mother hen and her baby chicks. Below is an example of this section from the book.
