    We've been reading "Still Life with Chickens: Starting Over in a House by the Sea" by Catherine Goldhammer and it is very funny. [​IMG]

    We enjoyed "Hen and the Art of Chicken Maintenance" by Martin Gurdon.

    Anyone else have good chicken book suggestions?

    Thanks![​IMG]

    I just finished "Still Life with Chickens" and loved it! I could so identify with her chicken stories, especially the part when she went to the feed store to picj up her chicks! I must not live too far away from her, in southern NH, and so much of what she wrote seemed familiar. I started the book last night and finished it today-I couldn't put it down. Now I need to do a search and see if there really is a "Wes in Texas" here on the forum.
    Cheers,
    Terry

    I'm a quarter of the way through "the Chicken Book" by Paige Smith and Charles Daniel. It's a wonderful intellectual treatise about the much maligned, humble chicken. Wonderful read so far!!!
