Have you ever had visions of a lush, bountiful garden complete with chickens pecking around perfectly ripe tomatoes?  I know I certainly did, but I quickly learned that while chickens can be great for a garden, there are some things you must understand before you introduce them.  Thankfully, today we're joined by a true expert in the field, my friend and esteemed author Lisa Steele.  Listen as Lisa and I dive deep into how chickens can help cut down on waste, how they help feed your garden, how they cut down on bugs and weeds, and so much more.  Lisa is a 5th generation chicken keeper and has a wealth of knowledge and experience working with these amazing birds.  There is truly something for everyone in this episode, including Lisa's advice on how to pick out eggs at a grocery store.
