Audience: General/trade. local foods movement is mushrooming and chickens have become its mascot. City Chicks brings fresh, innovative and new information about keeping backyard flocks of urban chickens. City Chicks describes in detail how chicken s skill sets can be employed in a Hen-Have-More Plan for food production systems. Instead of using oil-based chemicals, chickens can help produce fertilizer and compost; they can turn yard waste into garden soil. Hens can also be used as mobile, clucking, (organic and non-toxic), pesticiders, herbiciders, and insecticiders. And chickens can be of civic service. One chicken eats about 7 pounds of food waste a month. A few hundred households keeping micro-flocks of laying hens can divert tons of yard and food biomass waste from trash collection saving municipalities millions, even billions of tax payer dollars. To quote City Chicks: What if a city had 2, 000 households with three hens (or more) each? That could translate to 252 tons of food waste diverted from landfills each year..Add to that number the tons of yard waste (grass clippings and leaves) that can hens can help convert into compost and the amount is as enormous as the tax-savings of NOT having to handle, transport and store all that biomass waste. (Page 20 to 21) This 460 page book has over 100 photos, sketches, and tables bringing visual clarity and simplicity to complex concepts. To see two examples click here: Chicken Skill Sets (page 18) and, Chickens in Recycling and Food Production Systems (page 19). City Chicks ushers in a new paradigm of how to use these versatile, clucking, feathered bi-peds in a variety of roles that help decrease carbon foot-prints, save tax payer dollars and support local food supply production. City Chicks shows how you can: * Have fresh, heart-healthy eggs, daily from your backyard home flock. * Employ your chicken s skill sets as garden workers, organic pesticiders, herbiciders, fertilizers, compost creators and top soil enhancers. * Take the best car.
