Hot off the Press: Chickens and (Coffeetable) Books

Owning chickens has fast become the new urban chic, with books being written and published frequently on all aspects of the phenomenon.  PG customer, HenschelHAUS Publishing has just published a memoir of Claudia Bruckert’s chicken clan, titled “A “Rooster’s Tale.”

The author tells her story through the eyes of a young rooster named Change, and follows the clan of chickens through a year of life including dust baths, brooding chicks, and awful territorial battles between families.  It’s a great insider view of everyday life, full of enchanting events and intriguing facts, and beautifully photographed by the author.

In this oversized coffee table book, Claudia answers the essential questions:  Do chickens talk? What does a rooster do all day? Would a mother hen attack a hawk? What happens within a family of chickens?

There are charming illustrations and full bleed photographs in this hardcover book.  It’s a reading joy for children, adults, and everyone who takes animals seriously and a warmhearted inspiration for seasoned and aspiring chicken farmers.
