Once Upon a Flock

If you've ever had a flock of pet chickens or suspected that you might one day want to build a chicken coop in your backyard, or if you enjoy stories, photographs and drawings of adorably fuzzy chicks, then you should scoop up a copy of Lauren Scheuer's Once Upon a Flock. Scheuer adopts four tiny chicks and immediately begins to pamper them by building them a palace of a coop and by teaching her dog to see himself as flock leader rather than flock eater. During the months that follow, she invents recipes to use dozens of eggs, learns to identify the meaning of various chicken grunts and coos, discovers how deep human-chicken bonds can go, and participates in a wide range of crazy schemes to ensure that her chickens remain safe and happy. Once Upon a Flock is quick read, each page supplemented with whimsical hand-drawn chicken caricatures and photographs of Scheuer's pets.
