A Chatty Guide to Chickens, by Jane Furnival
Keeping Hens gives you the benefit of a decade of Jane Furnival’s experience looking after chickens in her back garden. It covers all the questions you might have: How many hens to keep? What to feed them? What about a cockerel? Will they get on with the dog or destroy the vegetable patch?
Jane Furnival was, as her son Will says in his foreword, a firework. An independent, driven and exceptionally bright woman, she threw herself into life. Reading this book is like having a chatty conversation with Jane – sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and always entertaining.
The hilarious and heartwarming stories of life with Winchester the cockerel, Princess the Buff Orpington, and Boo the hen-herding dog will entertain animal lovers and inspire anyone who is thinking about keeping chickens.
For every paperback book sold through our online shop, we will put 40p towards sponsoring a hen through the British Hen Welfare Trust. We want to raise £48 to sponsor a hen for a year – or hopefully longer!
