    A few nights ago I was going through the nightly ritual of reading to my 2 girls before bed. Usually Emily gets to do this (since I'm on the computer putting out forum fires) but it was a slow night on the forum so I got to. [​IMG]

    Alana picked a story and so did April. I can't remember who picked the first one I read, "Good Morning Chick", but I began reading. About 1/2 way into the book I read:

    "His mother's name was Speckled Hen and she looked like this"

    No way!?! I wonder if this is where our very own SpeckledHen got her name?

    Here is the page and the book cover!

    Very cute! No, the reason I picked speckledhen is because I originally wanted guineas and Speckled Sussex, but what a cute book!

    Weird. I found it for around $10 on amazon this evening. I think it normally is about $20 at the bookstore because it is a hardcover, large picture book.

    The price is starting to come back down

    Please note that the price of Louise, The Adventures of a Chicken has decreased from $14.03 to $12.23 since you placed it in your Shopping Cart.​
