Chickening Out!




As promised, here’s a sneak peek at my forthcoming book on chickens, entitled “Keeping Chickens with Ashley English: All You Need to Know to Care for a Happy, Healthy Flock.” I love, love, love this book, and not just because I wrote it. It’s such a beautifully presented guide for getting going, and remaining going strong, with “chicken tendering.” It’s full of hand-holding instruction and delicious recipes developed right here, in my kitchen.


This book, along with its companion in the “Homemade Living” series, “Canning & Preserving with Ashley English: All You Need to Know About Jams, Jellies, Pickles, Chutneys & More“, hits bookstore shelves April 6, 2010. Both are available online now for pre-order. Then, in Spring 2011, the next two books in the series, “Home Dairy” and “Keeping Bees” will make their appearance. You’ll love them. I guarantee it.

I’m so thrilled to offer these books to you. Not only are they beautiful to look at and chock full of tactile information to guide you, they show a real person who pursued these endeavors, messing up at times, scoring victories at others. It’s a relatable, approachable, fully human story. I look forward to sharing it with you.

*The rooster above is Elvis, cradled carefully in the ever-capable hands of my friend Lance Graves. Lance and his wife run a fantastic farm here in the Asheville area, the Double ‘G’ ranch. They also serve as suppliers of organic chicken feed, among other poultry and animal products. They graciously allowed us to photograph on their property last year and have been helpful in so very many ways.
