    Has anyone read this book? I got a copy and read it right a way. It is so interesting.

    I don't know if you're a new BYC member or not, but the author is a member... Her name is Heron.
    How about the Hoboken Chicken Emergency or Headly the Chicken Pecked my Eye.

    The book is exceptional....
    I not only read it, I recommend it to anyone who just doesn't "get" our love for our birdy babies...

    I got it for my birthday a week ago.

    I laughed out loud when I saw us described as a tribe, and wes as a respected elder [​IMG] And it was rather similar to what happened with me - I found BYC myself when I was 11 and I know I started quoting it at my dad!
