Wonderful book! Entertaining read and very well written, and as any chicken owner will tell you their personalities and character are unique to each one. Read this book and fall in love with delightful tales of what it's like to raise chickens, albeit some verY, very quirky girls!

This warm and funny book about the antics of backyard pet hens is just lovely, and made me smile throughout. I keep my own pet chickens and know how individual they are, and fussy and moody and full of life and love of the good things, so this was a little treat.
Don't look to this book for any in-depth knowledge about hen keeping and you'll find it charming. I could've stood more context to the hen-world portrayed as the author seems to live in a very pretty place, with plenty of other animals and wildlife around and certainly has a style of writing that would make it all interesting.
Anyway, I always dipped into this little book when I was feeling a little blue because it could easily make me smile.

what a fantastic read! Trish Colton writes in a way which is so easy to read, she brings the charaters of the chickens to life , and made me laugh out loud in some parts.
I couldn't wait to pick it up again to see what they had been up to.....
Completely recommended to animal lovers, whether you keep chickens or not!
Can't wait to read more by Trish!
