    I would appreciate either feed or associated items. Gift csards for the feed store. And yes MOR?E chickens.
    I received a gift certificate for a hatchery to order chickens imn the spring. Nothing like seeing a couple of nbags of feed for you on Christmas morn!

    Gift cards like mentioned and I love checking out the signs on etsy about chickens (money can't by happiness but it can buy more chickens which is pretty much the same thing lol)

    A gift card to either a hatchery or a feed store would be the perfect gift as the chicken owner can use it to purchase whatever he or she needs or wants.

    Yes, the Mini Encyclopedia of Chicken Breeds and Care by Frances Bassom is excellent, and despite having the word "mini" in the title it is very comprehensive.
