The Junior Blogger's Fresh Eggs Daily Book Review and GIVEAWAY!

This week is pretty special for our Kindergarten Junior Blogger. Lisa Steele of Fresh Eggs Daily asked our Junior Blogger to review her book and then said she would give a signed copy to one lucky winner in a GIVEAWAY! So exciting!  

Please enjoy our 6-year-old's book review and make sure to enter the GIVEAWAY at the end of her post.  Thanks for reading and good luck!

Book Review: Fresh Eggs Daily 
and SIGNED BOOK GIVEAWAY!

Book review by the Kindergarten Junior Blogger





About the Author:
Lisa wrote the book.  She takes care of chickens.  First, she wanted goats and her husband said let's get chickens instead. When growing up Lisa's grandparents had chickens and Lisa wore mitts to protect her hands from the chickens pecking her when she tried to get the eggs.  That's what she remembers about chickens when she was small, but the chickens she has now aren't mean.

About This Book
Lisa teaches people to give chickens herbs like rosemary, mint and lavender instead of medicines. She says to put herbs in the coop, the nesting boxes and their dust baths.  Lisa also tells you how to clean the coop with real orange cleaner and how to make it not stinky with special good smelling sprays.

Lisa tells you to put herbs in the chickens' food that they eat.  She also talks about what foods to give and not give to your chickens.   You shouldn't give them apple seeds!  She says you can spoil your chickens with treats, but don't give them lots because it is not healthy. 

Lisa talks about how to take care of your chickens in the winter, the summer, when they are molting, when they are broody and when they are sick.  She tells you what herbs you can use to help them. She gives lots of good recipes that are healthy and use herbs.

What I Like About This Book:
I really like the pictures of her chickens.  I also like how she made a lettuce pinata for her chickens.  I thought it was funny that her grandma's chickens would peck her when she would get their eggs.



ENTER IN MY GIVEAWAY!  
Win a signed copy of the Fresh Eggs Daily book! Lisa said she would send a signed book to my winner!  To enter my contest just write a comment below my post and tell me how many chickens you have or want to have one day.  That's it!

  4. Thanks for your review! I like the hint about wearing gloves if you have mean chickens. I live in the city now and can't have chickens, but I will be moving to the country next year and hope to get a few. I will also be able to grow lots of herbs, so would love to read this book!

  12. I enjoyed reading your review Junior Blogger. When I was growing up we had all types of farm animals, including Chickens. It was a wonderful adventure and I so loved all the animals. Where I live now I plant a garden and grow Herbs each year. My husband and I are looking for a home with more land which will allow us to have Chickens and other farm animals. I would so love to have a signed copy of Fresh Eggs Daily to guide me through raising my Chickens in the best and healthy way possible.

  20. I liked your picture and review. If I won this book I would give it to my Grandkids (3 and 5), they live in the city are going to get their first chickens this coming spring. I'll be visiting them during spring break to help them build a coop. They love to feed and to collect the eggs from my chickens. I have 16 chickens and 1 rooster.

  24. I enjoyed reading your book review. I am 65 years old and this is the FIRST time I have raised chickens. Can you believe that? When I was very little I was afraid of them (I think my grandma had a mean rooster). I now have 14 hens and I love them. My husband built a beautiful coop for them and we do tend to baby them. I think this book would be full of very good information and since I have 10 acres to live on I think I could grow a lot of healthy herbs for the "girls".

  25. Love this review. we used to have chickens but our rooster attacked my little girls (I don't think he likes skirts and dresses. He really didn't like anybody/anything playing on the swing. One day he popped a swim ring that was sitting on the swing). Hopefully we can get some more chickens this summer. They were a lot of fun, except for that rooster.

  26. Very thoughtful review, and a good writing project for a young lady. We have 12 chickens, I like it this way.

  29. Great review! We just recently purchased a small acreage farm that needs a lot of TLC so it is a work in progress. I plan to have chickens this spring and would love to win this book as my go to guide in helping me take care of my chicks. As a child I remember my mothers chickens with fond memories and am excited to start my own flock!

  32. I loved the review! It's great that you already are raising chickens. I would love to have about 15-20 chickens on a homestead.

  33. Thanks so much for this fantastic review, Kindergarten Junior Blogger! I think you have a bright future! I'm so excited to get chickens next year. Right now our county doesn't allow them, but I've been working with the county to change the law, and it looks like we'll be allowed this year! We want to build a coop for 15 chickens, and we want to choose breeds that will lay every color of eggs. How much fun is that? We would love to have one of these books to help us learn how to take care of them.

  45. This is wonderful - great job, junior blogger! You are adorable! We have 21 chickens right now, including Barred Rocks, Welsummers, Gold Laced Wyandottes, a Buff, and a few "Barnyard Classics" (mixes). We also have 22 dairy goats, 2 big dogs, 3 kitty cats, and four Bourbon Red turkeys. Keep on blogging and it would be awesome to win the autographed book! :-)

  46. I have 12 chickens, 7 laying hens, 3 older non laying hens, 2 roosters, and 5 chickens still in their shells.....due to hatch in 9 days :)

  47. Technically 'I' don't have any right now because we are renting away from home and can't here. But, I've taken on co-coordinating my daughter's school farm where we currently have 12 (6 varieties) that have settled into a nice flock, and we plan to get about 6 pullets in Jan, and 20 or so broilers for the summer. (I turn 40 in Jan and have added 'chicken butchering' to my bucket list...THIS is the year.) Ours is a Biodynamic school farm and we aim to raise all our critters naturally, including letting the chickens free roam our 'compost yard' to cut purchasing feed. I certainly could use some tips to know what herbs to plant for better health, and would love to familiarize myself with breeds.

  48. I had 32 chickens at our last home. I had Buff, Sexlink, Easter Egger, Barred Rock, and a couple 'fancy' chickens. I was able to sell my fresh eggs and meet many wonderful people. Some came all the way from the local hospital 25 miles away, and ended up on the Team who helped care for my Father-in-law when he got the Cancer. We have moved this year back to where we are from, NW Arkansas, and I had to get rid of my chickens. I want chickens back again really bad, I miss them!! I just LOVE your book review!! And because of it I feel I really want this book for references to start a chicken book library. This book sounds so resourceful! Thank you Kindergarten Junior Blogger!! You have a very nice blog that I will now be following! I want to share it with my Grandchildren. Keep up the great work!! ��

  49. Love your review;)! I have 3 hens right now only 2 months old. I also have 3 Serama hens and a rooster. I am just getting started but I absolutely love them! When my husband first brought home the (originally 4) chicks, I thought, "how does anyone get attached to a chicken?" LOL On Thanksgiving one of my girls got out & a rescue dog we have killed her. I was heart broken. So now I know "how you become attached to a chicken!" The Seramas Ive only had for a week. They are so tiny (5 months old) & one is already laying the cutest little egg ever! I would love to win this book to continue to learn to raise my flock (that will continue to grow;) naturally!! Thank you for this opportunity!

  53. Thank you Junior Blogger for your informative review! :)
    We have 5 chickens. Two are Buff Orpingtons that we adopted when our neighbor decided he didn't want to have chickens anymore - and sadly they aren't friendly like yours because he didn't handle them when they were young. I call them Buff and Broody, because one of them goes broody every year in May. We also have one Rhode Island Red named Merida, a Barred Rock named Fiona Zecora, and an Easter Egger named Rapunzel.

    This year we added ducks to the yard: Dobby The Duck and Ducky Barnes are the boys, Herman and Drizzle are the girls.
