Frank Hyman - 'Hentopia: Create a Hassle-Free Habitat for Happy Chickens; 21 Innovative Projects'

More eggs, less work - and more enjoyment for both the chickens and their keeper! That's the promise of Frank Hyman's Hentopia.

From the Vending Machine Feeder to the Refilling Rainwaterer, Hyman's innovative building projects are designed to save time and money while keeping chickens safe, healthy, clean, and well fed. Featuring easy-to-follow instructions and colorful photos, the 21 of the projects for the chicken yard range from creative doorways, nest boxes, fencing, and roosts to a predator-proof pen, a "Chunnel" chicken run, and a sturdy but inexpensive coop made from wooden pallets. With a lively, humorous voice, Hyman generously shares his expert advice on all aspects of chicken-keeping. Requiring no previous carpentry experience and using many salvaged or found materials, Hentopiais within reach of every aspiring chicken-keeper.

“This is the book I wish I'd read when I started keeping chickens. Hyman is so funny and personable that he has managed to write an extremely handy and detailed chicken-keeping manual that is also quite entertaining to read. ” — Amy Stewart (The Drunken Botanist and Wicked Plants)
