    "Living With Chickens" by Jay Rossier is another good one. Its one of my favorites.

    Quote:Most "chicken" books are going to be basic information, as there are only so many ways you can write about chickens. However, each author writes in his/her own words, so even though one book may be similar to another, the points of views and opinions will usually differ greatly.

    OH! And how could I forget.... "Extraordinary Chickens," and "Extra Extraordinary Chickens." For the life of my I can't remember the author's names, but if you aren't the reading type, these picture books are VERY entertaining.

    Quote:+1 I just finished it and really liked it. It's a great big in-joke, though, so if you're looking for a how-to, this isn't the book. It's really a long commentary on the funny sides of having feathered dinosaurs.
