Zen and the Art of Raising Chickens examines why keeping chickens has become so popular, as it addresses environmental issues, the locovore movement, and a shift in the way we want to live. The book includes the way in which hen-keeping can easily be fitted into a busy lifestyle. Written in a light-hearted and uplifting style, the book includes anecdotes, tips, and philosophical musings. Perfect for anyone interested in keeping chickens who seeks a more enlightened lifestyle.
Raising chickens is not only environmentally friendly, economical, and organic - it might also be the path to enlightenment. Zen and the Art of Raising Chickens explores the entertaining, rewarding, and - yes - enlightening art of keeping chickens in an urban or suburban garden. Chickens slow us down and ground us. This book demonstrates how raising chickens can easily fit into a busy lifestyle, and why doing so helps keep us sane and focused on the simpler joys of life.
Zen and the Art of Raising Chickens examines the power of urban chicken ownership to change the way we live in the world through spiritual homesteading.
