    Thank you for the recommendation, I just put a hold on it at my county library.

    One of my all-time favorite books is The Egg and I by Betty MacDonald. It's a hilarious account of a lady living on a chicken ranch in the backwoods of the Pacific Northwest.

    Another funny chicken book is Hen and the Art of Chicken Maintence: Reflections on Raising Chickens by Martin Gurdon.

    Sounds interesting!

    I just put it on my wish list on Paperbackswap.com

    If you haven't been there, you post the books you have and you get credits for each book you send to someone. For each credit you have you can request a book from someone else.

    One credit=1 book

    All you pay is the shipping on the books YOU send.

    If they don't have the book, you can put it on your wishlist and they'll tell you when it comes in.

    If you refer your friends to join, you get more credits for free. So tell em I sent ya! [email protected]
