The Chicken Encyclopedia Giveaway

Mar
6

Storey Publishing, makers of so many excellent handbooks about farm animals, invited me to be part of their “blog tour” for The Chicken Encyclopedia, a new book by Gail Damerow. It’s hard to turn down a chicken book. I have a number of Storey books, including Storey’s Guide to Raising Chickens, also by Damerow. They’re all indispensable on their given topic, and The Chicken Encyclopedia lives up to the Storey name.


Even if you already have a chicken book or ten, this one makes a great companion to other books on chickens because of its format. It’s set up as an A to Z resource, so when you need to know something fast, it’s easy to find, and useful for both the beginner and the experienced chicken owner. (There are also lots of pictures.) I wish I’d had it when I was trying to figure out what was going on with the Crooked Little Hen. Go to the “Cs” and look up crossed beak. Aside from being able to quickly find what you’re looking for, it’s fun to thumb through and find out what you’d never think to ask. Ever heard of a roach back chicken? That’s a chicken with a hump! Like, the Hunchback of Notre Coop! Or what’s a wind egg? (A small, yolkless egg. Also called a fart egg. Ick.) What’s pearl-eyed? (Creamy white or bluish-gray eyes, characteristic of Aseel, Cornish, Malay, and Shamo chickens. Sounds creepy. I haven’t even heard of any of those breeds other than Cornish!)

The Crooked Little Hen, by the way, is doing well. She will be celebrating her fourth birthday this spring, which just goes to show a crossed beak chicken can get along just fine. While I wouldn’t want to hatch chicks from her–the condition is genetic in most cases–she lays quite lovely blue eggs and has a ton of personality. She’s one of my favorite chickens.

If you missed my stories about the Crooked Little Hen, you can find a couple of my favorites here:
The Crooked Little Hen Saves the Day
A Crooked Little Hen Love Story

And here are some other places you can find Storey:

    I would love to win a copy of Storey’s Chicken Encyclopedia! I’ve raised chickens twice and can’t wait to do it again. Moving around in the Air Force means that sometimes you don’t have the most ideal conditions for the things you like to do. But soon I’ll be in a much better place for setting up to raise chickens again. Thank you for the opportunity to win a copy.

    Since I live in a city that doesn’t allow backyard chickens, I would love to have this for my son and his family. They now have three banties with feathers on their legs and a rooster of the same type. They get three eggs a day and are planning on getting some chicks come spring. They would love to be gifted with this book. Thankyou!

    As the midtown mother of 3 hens I definitely would love to win the book. All I know about the chickens I was given by neighbors is that they drive you crazy wanting food. They will sit at the dog door and cluck and fuss until you feed them, and they will come in the house to help themselves to the food. Any guidance is appreciated. BTW, an update on large puppy??? :chicken:

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
