    Nevermind, I found it! YAY!

    ----------------
    This may be 'beyond help' but I want to find out the name of this certain book about chickens. I had to get it through an inter-library loan last year, but didn't I get a chance to finish it.
    Here's what I remember about it:
    It has a yellow cover that was simply stapled on in one corner - not bound.
    It is basically a written transcript of a meeting with two students and a professor during a class about poultry.

    Any ideas? Thanks [​IMG]

    Sounds like it's a single publication, likely by a PhD candidate at a college near you. Your librarian can probably help more than we can.

    Good luck!

    I believe it was originally kind of old (possibly a new publishing), and I read about it from some where else.... that is why I chose to get it from the library in the first place.
