I read this book last summer and I think anyone who loves chickens would enjoy it. It is fiction. It is wonderfully written and a quick enjoyable read. The chickens are wonderful in the book. I read another book a few years ago that is great and has chickens in it. It is called "A Can of Peas" The woman in this book raises meat birds and it too is a wonderful! I really identified with the main character. I am a true city girl that move to the country. We moved back to my husband's large family potato farm from Los Angeles, CA. We both had high paying corporate jobs but decided that isn't how we wanted to raise our children. I love books that embrace my passion for chickens and life! Am I nuts? Anyone know of any other good books you can suggest?
