Today on the podcast we have on the queen of the coop herself - Lisa Steele of Fresh Eggs Daily. Lisa has been raising chickens naturally for over a decade on her Fresh Eggs Daily Blog and shares with us all about how you can get started with your first backyard flock. We love her down-to-earth advice on using herbs and natural means to care for your hens.
If you are a seasoned chicken owner and wondering what to do with all those excess eggs then Lisa's new cookbook The Fresh Eggs Daily Cookbook is full of delicious and fun recipes for you. Not to mention it's 45% off right now. This cookbook has become a staple in my kitchen and I especially love that the index offers recipes by the amount of eggs you have on hand! My personal favorite is the Boston Creme Pie recipe. That pie turns out beyond delicious and incredibly decadent.
Lisa was and continues to be so generous with her knowledge and insight on chicken care - be sure to tune in
