MY CHICKEN FAMILY
Author: Melissa Caughey; Illustrated by: Oana Befort
This beautifully designed keepsake album is perfect for chronicling chicken-keeping adventures, tracking the growth from chick to flock elder—with spaces and prompts for distinctive personalities, names, photos, and amusing anecdotes.
Backyard chicken keepers have a deep affection for their animals and interact with them like any pet, as Melissa Caughey, best-selling author of How to Speak Chicken, knows well from her decades of chicken friendships. With My Chicken Family, Caughey has created a unique keepsake album that invites chicken owners to create a lasting record of their chicken adventures, with spots for adding photos of their favorite flock members and write-in prompts customized to every phrase of the chicken-keeping experience.
Featuring charming chicken-themed art borders, every page invites users to chronicle an aspect of their chickens’ lives, beginning with chicks and progressing to laying hen or rooster to flock elder. Spaces are allocated for recording amusing anecdotes and practical information about the selected breeds, health care, flock dynamics, and individual chicken names and personalities. The hardcover format features an egg-shaped die-cut cover that every owner can customize with a portrait of one of their feathered friends, making it a perfect gift for any backyard chicken enthusiast.
