"A different kind of chicken book." -- Kim from New Zealand
Susan Orlean once wrote raising chickens was a “do-it-yourself hobby at a moment when doing things yourself was newly appreciated as a declaration of self-sufficiency, a celebration of hand-work, a push-back from a numbing and disconnected big-box life.” Many of us long for a renewed connection with the earth and greater control over our food. One might even say we long for a more Zen existence. Chickens, in their simple scratches and pecks, call us back to our true nature.
"Dippy and delightful" - Janet Mawdesley
