Review: Chicken Books Part Two

   Last year I wrote a post about the chicken care books I have. (If you missed it you can find it here!) Recently, I realized that I still have some books I didn't write about. I felt I should update this topic, so here we go!

Chick Days: An Absolute Beginner's Guide to Raising Chickens Hatchlings to Laying Hens
By: Jenna Woginrich

   This is such a great book!

   I checked this book out of the library before I got the chicks. This was definitely the most useful book I looked at for raising chicks. I does have some good general information about raising chickens (such as breeds and housing). However, what sets this book apart from others is it's "Growing Up" and "From Chicks to Chickens" chapters. 

   These chapters go day by day and tell what you can expect. Everything from signs of roosters to when feathers come in. Later the chapters go week by week, then month by month. This is extremely helpful!

Once Upon a Flock: Life with My Soulful Chickens
By: Lauren Scheuer

   This is not a informational book. It is a novel about this woman's flock. It is absolutely fantastic!

   The stories are wonderful and the author's creative drawings add so much!

This book is filled with cute pictures...

..and even cuter drawings!

    Some stories are a little sad and some are hilarious! In my opinion, this book is definitely worth buying!

   I highly recommend both these books! Chick Days is one of my best chicken resource books and Once Upon a Flock is great for a fun read!

    I have both and I agree, they are great books!
    Have you ever visited Lauren Scheuer's chicken blog?

  3. Yes, I absolutely love her blog! It is actually part of the reason I decided to start my own!
