Once Upon a Flock: Life with my Soulful Chickens


Another day, another new book! Published last week, Once Upon a Flock by Lauren Scheuer already has reviews flooding in!

“Lauren’s heartwarming and amusing account of her adventures with chickens… Lauren recounts her experience with great warmth and style.” – Practical Poultry Magazine

“Tricky to put down… warm and witty… A must read for anyone who already shares their life with a flock of chickens and those contemplating the idea.” – The Garden Smallholder blog

“A really terrific book… [which] should be read by everyone.” – The Compost Bin blog

Meet the flock: Jenny, a chick who is as easy to love as she is to laugh at, Hatsy, an elegant and adventurous leader, and Lil’ White, a chicken with the respectable comportment of a Southern belle. And then there’s Marky, Lauren’s pet dog who went from chicken tormentor to their devoted protector.

Documenting the daily adventures of her chicken family with her photos and illustrations, Lauren Scheuer comes to realise that love, loss and passion are not only parts of the human experience, but essential parts of chicken life as well.

Once Upon a Flock is a heartwarming tale that will delight any animal-lover, and might even get you measuring up your garden for a brand new chicken coop! Crammed with Lauren Scheuer’s beautiful full-colour illustrations, the book brings Lauren’s little flock to life.
