Book Description

15 Mar 2007

If you think you are in charge of your chickens, prepare for a change in the pecking order. From Fowl Play to Hen-tertainment, in this hilarious collection by Diane Parker the chickens show us who are really in charge, and what they're really plotting inside their coops!

Don't worry about the morning after the night before. Unmade nests, broken eggs and scattered food -your human will not even notice the difference and they always have spare time to clean up after you.

Free range means you have the right to roam. However you choose to do it, escape on a regular basis and refuse to return until you are ready.

Try to tip your food hopper up so all the corn spills. That way your human will have to refill it on a more regular basis.

More About the Author

I have been keeping hens for several years and it was my exisiting brood that inspired me to write 'One Hundred Ways For A Chicken To Train Its Human' It was a pleasure to do the research for this little book as by watching them I could see straight away how their indiviual characters shone through. When they passed away I got a new brood and now write a fun blog called Inside the Chicken coop, dedicated to them and their daily antics.

My writing is inspired by animals and nature, I love being outdoors and spending time with my horses and chickens. I have written a young adult novel which I am currently trying to get published and shorter stories for young children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Power to chickens!! 17 Mar 2007
Format:Paperback
Having really enjoyed the books in the "animal 100 ways to train its human" series it was really interesting to see one on chickens rather than the "usual" cats, dogs and horses etc. I've found these little books such a great way of buying a small present for family and friends...what better than one on chickens at Easter time! Having bought this one I can recommend that it achieves the same lovely gentle humour as the others and is a wonderful addition to this delightful series - and is another great little stocking filler. An ineggspensive treat!

5.0 out of 5 stars Eggs-actly what it is cracked up to be! 7 Nov 2008
Format:Paperback
100 Ways For A Chicken To Train Its Human is a must have for all chicken owners out there! With chapter titles like 'Fowl Play', 'Eggstra Special' and 'Avian Attitude' this book goes behind the scenes and exposes what goes on in those tiny minds of theirs. This humorous book has hen behaviour sussed, and is the perfect stocking filler for any chicken fancier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hen-tertaining! 19 Mar 2007
By Lynneth
Format:Paperback
My step-children bought me this for Mother's Day and I have already read it from cover to cover. Having previously read "A Hundred Thoughts Cats Have About Humans" I have to agree with M. Perry that this is a refreshing change! Lots of entertaining chicken puns that you can share with the kids. You don't need to be a chicken "eggs-pert" to laugh along with the jokes. A fun read for all the family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfied - thank you! 26 Dec 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought for my dad as a stocking filler for Christmas. My mum's had a flick through and finds it hilarious.
The book came on time and I wasn't at all disappointed. The size of the book is smaller than I'd presumed though! It's just a bit bigger than a pocket guide.
Completely satisfied with the seller's service and would recommend.
