I wasn’t sure if we could talk about eggs for an entire podcast episode, but I was wrong! From producing eggs in your own backyard to the many ways you can include them in your diet, there is plenty to discuss about this amazing superfood. Lisa Steele is an expert backyard chicken keeper and has just released a cookbook all about using eggs in your kitchen, so I knew she’d be the perfect guest for this conversation. You might be surprised at the many directions our conversation takes! Whether you are raising a backyard flock of chickens or just want some new ideas for incorporating eggs into your diet, there is something for everyone in this episode.
It’s that time of year! The time when backyard chicken keepers and full-blown homesteaders alike start thinking about expanding their flocks. My conversation with Kathleen of Oak Abode covers everything a new or prospective chicken owner might want to know. We address the four main aspects of chicken keeping: food, water, shelter, protection, as well as many other questions we are frequently asked. Whether you are considering getting chickens or have been keeping them for years, this episode is full of practical tips and lessons we have learned along the way.
