Deborah has spent a lifetime of working with and raising animals including horses, goats, cattle, dogs and cats. In addition to owning and managing three successful businesses, she is now retired from 35 years in information technology. However, "retired" is somewhat relative since her current business, the Queen D Ranch in New Mexico, is a full-time commitment. At the Queen D, she and her high school sweetheart, David, manage several horses, a herd of American Blackbelly sheep and over 100 purebred chickens. They hatch several hundred chicks each month and work to keep improving the quality of their Rhode Island Reds, Ameraucana, Silver Laced Wyandotte and Delaware chickens.
What you will learn from this book is what fertilizers are, what they do, how to apply them and how to custom make your own fertilizer tailored to the specific needs of your garden. The result will be a garden that has the right soil mechanics and the right macro and micro nutrients to produce top notch, nutrient-rich produce for your table.
Hatching chicks is very rewarding and not difficult but there is a need to pay attention to details. Incubating Chickens gives all the detail needed to a successful hatch. Humidity and temperature are critical. If there are little chickies in your future, this is the handbook you need.
