ABC Gardening Australia magazine is the top selling gardening title in Australia.
A must-have magazine for gardeners, it was launched more than two decades ago in conjunction with the popular ABC TV show Gardening Australia. Gardening of course is much more than growing plants, and this broader picture is reflected in every issue of the magazine. Gardening includes all those elements that make the backyard a vital part of the home, which is where the chooks come in.
With more and more people returning to the basics of growing vegetables, fruit and herbs, the chook shed and a backyard flock are as much a garden essential as a good compost heap. Inspired by one of ABC Gardening Australia magazine's most popular reader competitions, to find Australia's best 'poultry palace', The Contented Chook is full of ideas to create a show-stopping, heart-warming home for your chooks. Features:
Dimensions (L x W x H):

- Expert advice on feeding and caring for your flock
- Real stories and photographs from chook owners around Australia
- How to build the perfect chook pen
