    I am wanting to visit our local library and get a couple of books on chickens! I was wondering if any one had any suggestions of books they have read and really enjoyed? I want a good book with good information about different breeds! If any one has read a fiction book and would like to suggest that as well that would be great![​IMG]

    Not much on fiction books.....

    I did just finished Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. Very good read.
