Episode 273: Dave Ingham – Backyard Chickens and when is it ‘good’ advice?
Dave Ingham is a henkeeping expert who first started keeping chooks as an impoverished uni student, when he and his mates planted a mega veggie garden – chickens were a natural extension. From there he started a rent-a-chook business that allows people to “try keeping chickens before they buy”. His new book Backyard Chickens: How to keep happy hens explains how keeping chooks is no longer for those with farms or large properties. Savvy urbanites can keep chooks too.
