About the author - Elise McNamara
Everyone has a passion, and mine happen to have beaks and feathers. It was love at first cheep, 28 years ago.
"Chooks” will always be my love, and I’m lucky have hundreds of years of combined experience at my fingertips through my local exhibition poultry club, in which I’m an active member.
Outside my 9-5 as a marketer, I consult casually for a number of small family-run egg farms in Australia, and have a particular interest in innovative animal nutrition, disease resistance, integrative veterinary medicine, sustainable farming and Permaculture. This book was inspired by the hundreds of people that have attended my workshops over the years, where the same themes come up, again and again. Mastering the basics well will have you on your way to healthy, productive, happy hens.
