    So I just found this great website that archives public domain children's stories and makes them available for downloading. Most of the books/stories are from the early 20th century and it's cool to see how children's books were done back then. And the best part of all is that there are lots of books/stories about chickens!!! [​IMG] I just read my little guy several and the neat part about them is that they wove some actual chicken behavior into the fictional parts of the story. Chickens weren't as alien to most folks back then, I guess. Anyway, if you or your little human chickies want to take a look, here's the address for the site:

    And here's an extra cute book on it called [Chickies/u]: http://www.childrensbooksonline.org/Chickies/index.htm

    Enjoy!
