Imperfectly Happy is one of the lucky blogs on the Fresh Eggs Daily Book Tour! I was blessed to have a chance to talk to Lisa Steele about her book on the Imperfectly Happy Homesteader on October 14th.
Lisa is sponsoring a giveaway of her book as well. You can enter here until October 25th.
I finished reading the book myself over the weekend and I am excited to share my review with you!
You’ll recognize Lisa’s “look” from her blog and Facebook page as soon as you see the cover. I love that it is a hardbound book and the perfect size to carry anywhere.
Let me say that Lisa is truly a wealth of information. She knows chickens but this isn’t your average chicken care book; it is so much more! As you open the book you feel, from the start, that you’re having tea and scones with your down-to-earth friend. Your friend is sharing some of her “chicken story” and knowledge and you’re along for the wonderful ride.
In other books I’ve read either the advice was too clinical or too impractical for me to put to use in my suburban backyard; NOT the case with Fresh Eggs Daily. It is not only achievable but practical ways to care for the needs of your chickens. What makes her advice stand out even further is the natural systems she uses – from herbs in the nest box to her “molt muffin” recipe.
I am a great believer in natural care and health for people. Why wouldn’t we want to give our chickens a healthy life through natural care too?
You’ll love her chapter on spoiling your chickens with healthy treats! I also found the chapters and summer and winter needs extremely informative. Do you know how to keep your hens from suffering winter boredom? Well Lisa does!
Beautiful pictures, herbs, nutrition, treats and fun…just the tip of the ice burg in this delightful chicken book. I know I’ll be back to reference it often! Thank you Lisa!
