Chicken Tenders

Oh! I almost forgot to mention that my "Small Measures with Ashley" post is up on Design Sponge. This week I chose to give a "quick and dirty" introduction to keeping chickens (or chicken tendering, if you will!), as the topic dovetailed with the release of my "Keeping Chickens" book (book #1 in the Homemade Living series; book #2, "Canning & Preserving" made its debut this week, too) this past Tuesday.

If you don't yet have chickens, I'd suggest my book as a great hand-holding primer to get you started. And if you've already got a crew of fine feathered friends, there's plenty in there for you, as well!

Happy Weekending, everyone!

Psst...my buddy Jenna Woginrich is giving away a copy of my book over at her phenomenal homesteading blog Cold Antler Farm. The contest runs through tomorrow evening, so stop by, tell her "howdy", and try your hand!

That's a fine looking hen house and covered yard!

Riddle me this: why do the captcha phrases in the word verification box always look like places in Canada?
