Author information

John Harrison has had an interest in chickens since he was a young child but it wasn't until he was able to get his own allotment that he was able to put his dream into reality and start raising his own birds. Now not only does he keep a small flock in his back garden, but he and his daughter Cara provide help and advice to newcomers to keeping chickens on the poultry pages of his popular allotment website, which is the UK's number one allotment website. He is also the author of the bestselling Vegetable Growing Month by Month.
