"Goes beyond telling us merely how to raise chickens ... [Jessi] shows how to integrate poultry into the garden."

-Toby Hemenway, author of Gaia's Garden: A Guide to Home-Scale Permaculture

Many gardeners fear chickens will peck away at their landscape, and chicken lovers often shy away from gardening for the same reason. But you can keep chickens and have a beautiful garden, too! Fresh eggs aren't the only benefit — chickens can actually help your garden grow and thrive, even as your garden does the same for your chickens.

In this hefty and beautiful handbook, award-winning garden designer Jessi Bloom covers everything a gardener needs to know to get started with chickens:

* Chicken-keeping basics

* Simple garden plans to get you started

* Tips on attractive fencing options

* The best plants, and plants to avoid

* Step-by-step instructions for getting your chicken garden up and running

Named one of the Top 10 Home & Garden books of 2012.

For anyone who wants a fabulous garden where colorful chickens happily roam, Free-Range Chicken Gardens is the guide that will bring the dream home to roost.
