I have some pretty big news. We have been working hard here to write a book about chicken coops. Yes, chicken coops. Why? When we got started with our flock, we couldn’t find much information on Building The Perfect Coop. It seems a minor issue but over the years we’ve spent a small fortune correcting those early mistakes. And now that we’re serving as mentors for other folks getting started with their flocks, we realized that they have the same questions we did. So instead of answering all those questions, one at a time, over and over again, we’ve written The Chicken Coop Manual. And now it’s available for purchase through our website.
For now, it will only be available in PDF format, full color, 81 pages in length. We’re having the file formats created to convert it into an e-book that will work on things like Kindles and Nooks. That process takes awhile but we’re hoping those versions will be ready sometime in February. We also plan to eventually offer the book in full color print format. But for now, we’ll dip our toe in the self-publishing world by offering it in PDF format while we await the e-book conversion.
For anyone on the list who are curious about possibly owning a small flock, but you weren’t sure where to start, this book is for you.
On a related note, for anyone on the list who is stuck at home with kids or animals or other caretaker duties, but who wants or needs an additional source of income, book writing and publishing may be an option to consider. I wrote this book in between all my other duties, and we’re going the self-publishing route which will keep the vast majority of any sales, coming in to our coffers rather than into a publisher’s wallet. If anyone is interested to know how I went about researching, completing and now marketing this product, please feel free to email me off-list. Or I can provide general information on-list if enough folks are interested.
