    Are we talking fiction or nonfiction?

    I only have Storey's guide to raising chickens and their basic Country Skills book. Other than that I get my info from this and other sites.

    So what is your favorite book?

    I like Storey's Guide to Raising Chickens, too. It seems to cover pretty much everything.

    Book? I dont know of an entire book, but my favorite story that I site often is the story of the Little Red Hen. My dating life has played out that story over and over again. I cant seem to find a guy who does not seem so put out when I ask him for a little help.
     
  6. I have read "Storeys Guide to Raising Chickens", and I have also ready "Hen & The art of Chicken Maintenance." Both are eggsellent reads.

    I also like the Extraodinary Chickens and Extra Extraodinary Chickens photo books.
     
  7. Sorry it was "Living with Chickens" by Jay Rossier that I read.

    I WANT to read "Hen And The Art of Chicken Maintenance."
