Her book is stuffed full of practical advice on keeping the garden both gorgeous and productive and hens happy and healthy. In addition to answering questions about coop construction, year-round egg production and whether or not a rooster is really needed, she covers the best breeds for backyards--from the winter-tough Chantecler to peewee bantams to blue-egg producing Ameraucana. Langford includes dozens of simple and elegant recipes from her own kitchen, as well as contributions from celebrated chefs. Illustrated with beautiful photographs, illustrations and garden plans, Happy Hens and Fresh Eggs is sure to become a favorite of avid and aspiring backyard farmers alike.

Visually impressive. The author is adorable and funny. The recipes are not very interesting, and most of them are nothing new, but the stories that go with them are cute.
