All it takes is a quick jaunt out back first thing in the morning to unlatch the coop and set your ladies free.

  1. What fantastic illustrations, the colours are wonderful, I especially loved the colourful little brown speckled hen.

  2. Lauren’s book has become one of my favorites. The loving way she tells their story (stories) and the perfect illustrations combine to create a warm and wonderful tale any chickenista will adore!
