    Looking for people to list the chicken related books they have that they really like. A sort of whats worth buying list. From how-to books to kids stories.

    Links to them at bn.com or amazon.com or where ever would help a lot too.

    An I'm sure Rob's 2 books will make someones list.

    The only two I have that are helpful are Storey's Guide To Raising Chickens and The Chicken Health Handbook, both by Gail Damerow. I honestly don't think I need another book since I have those two, and BYC.

    I don't have Rob's book, so I can't comment on it, but I would think it would be great as well.

    The Chicken Health Handbook is a new name to me. I will look that one up....

    I know more people on here read, or have we covered the extent of books that are worth having?

    Hen, and the Art of Chicken Maintenance was a good one. Enslaved by Ducks is another one of my favorites. Those are more novels, but good none-the-less!

    I also like the Extraordinary Chickens. It has beautiful pictures!

    There are a few more, but I'll have to check my collection when I go home. I got several of these during a BYC swap from a BYCer!

    Chickerdoodle, thanks so much for mentioning my book "Enslaved by Ducks!" I'm glad you enjoyed it. There's a sequel called "Fowl Weather" that's got lots about ducks, geese, and hens. And I just finished a new one that's mainly about our six cats called "The Funnel of Happiness." It will hit the shelves around March 2012.

    [​IMG] Bob. You must have your books names saved as a Google search or something cause that was quick.

    Quote:Bob, I didn't know you were a member on here! I absolutely loved your book. It's been a few years since I read it, but I remember it like yesterday and you had me cracking up hysterically! I will certainly have to get my hands on Fowl Weather. I'm sure it will be just as good as the last! I can't wait for your new book. That sounds wonderful! Be sure to keep us updated about when it hits shelves!
