Keeping Hens: A Chatty Guide to Chickens
by Jane Furnival
Publication date: 1 November 2020
Keeping hens is easy. This friendly, chatty book gives you all the everyday information you need to keep your hens happy and safe. 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 shares her decade of experience with a back garden flock. Jane’s chatty guide includes top tips, no-nonsense money-saving ideas and practical suggestions. Jane’s husband Andy also gives instructions for building your own henhouse.
Jane’s hilarious and heartwarming stories of life with Winchester the cockerel and his hen-pecked retinue will entertain animal lovers and inspire anyone who is thinking about keeping chickens.
Jane Furnival was the author of cult bestseller Mr Thrifty’s How to Save Money on Absolutely Everything, and became TV’s Queen of Thrift as presenter of the BBC1 series Smart Spenders, and a regular on GMTV. Jane passed away in 2012, leaving Keeping Hens unpublished. The manuscript has been updated by her family and chicken experts, and the book includes a new foreword and contributions from her son Will.
