Framed by the author's personal experience with backyard hens, Chickens: Their Natural and Unnatural Histories explores the history of the chicken from its descent from the dinosaurs to the space-age present. En route, author Janet Lembke surveys chickens in ancient Greece, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the 19th century, and modern times, including the role of chickens in Jewish and Muslim practices. She also investigates the birds' contributions to science and their jaunty appearances in literature. Eggs receive a chapter of their own, as does chicken cuisine, comprising recipes from the Roman Empire to today's favorites. Stories about chickens appear, too, often written by those who keep them, including the painter Grandma Moses, the man who holds Cleveland's Farm Animal Permit No. 17, and Brenda, who had to give her young roosters a talking-to for behaving like sheep.

Chickens have only recently come to a sorry pass in the Western world, where broilers and laying hens are factory-farmed. Lembke investigates the fate of such birds and explores the sustainable, humane alternatives to raising birds for meat and eggs.

A celebration of the chicken in its every aspect, Chickens is sure to delight the chicken fancier, the backyard chicken keeper, and everyone concerned about where our food comes from and how we can treat animals more compassionately.

KEEPING A FAMILY COW

The cow is the most productive, efficient creature on earth. She gives you fresh milk, cream, butter and cheese, and promotes human health and happiness. She helps the homesteaders and small farmers who offer her bounty up to the community with a chance at turning a profit. She provides rich manure for your garden or land, and enriches the quality of your life as you benefit from the resources of the natural world.

Originally published in the early 1970s as The Cow Economy and reprinted many times since, Keeping a Family Cow is the book that launched thousands of holistic small-scale dairy farmers and families raising healthy cows in accordance with their true nature.

This Chelsea Green edition of a nearly 40-year-old classic has been revised and updated to incorporate new information on the raw milk debate, the conversation about A1 vs. A2 milk, totally grass-fed dairies, practical advice for everyday chores, updated procedures for cow emergencies, and more.

The book offers answers to frequently asked first-time questions, such as: "Should I get a cow?" and "How much space do I need?" In addition to answering these important questions, the book provides extensive information on:

  • The health benefits of untreated milk
  • How to milk a cow effectively and with ease
  • Choosing a dairy breed
  • Drying off your cow
  • Details on calving and breeding
  • The importance of hay quality and how to feed your cow properly
  • Fencing and pasture management
  • Housing, water systems and other supplies
  • Treating milk fever and other diseases and disorders
  • Making butter, yogurt and cheese
Keeping a Family Cow not only has stood the test of time, but it remains the go-to inspirational manual for raising a family milk cow-nearly 40 years after its first publication. Joann Grohman has a lifetime of practical experience that has been bound into this one volume and presented in the spirit of fun and learning. She started milking cows in 1975 and says she can no longer imagine life without one. Health and happiness can't be teased apart, Grohman says, and a family dairy cow supports both of these essential life qualities.
