Author Melissa Caughey originally purchased chickens in order to have fresh eggs every day and to teach her children about sustainability. But when she slowed down enough to really pay attention to her feathered friends, she realized they were communicating far more than she ever expected. In How to Speak Chicken, she recounts her observations in deciphering the various squawks, tweets, peeps, and trills her chickens make (they even have a "name" call that they use just for her!), and delves into chicken biology and behavior to explain "why your chickens do what they do and say what they say." And now you can get the accompanying 2023 Wall Calendar, too, for a year's worth of impeckable fowl photography. Measures 12"x24" when open.
