Humorous read about chickens who can leave messages
Farmer Otis, his wife Abby, and his children Willie and Belle love their chickens. They also have a rooster named Pedro who protects the hens from predators. They also sell the hens' eggs after writing on it the name of who laid it. But their chickens are special and they have a lot to say.
One day, they found a message written in the dirt that said, "No more arugula." The chickens are the only ones who eat arugula, but it's hard to believe chickens could do that. When it keeps happening over and over again, the family knows it has to be the chickens. They can even determine which chicken wrote what. The hardest part is to get other people in the town to believe.
CHICKEN TALK is a fun read where the chickens tell you what's really on their minds. I love the humor in it, like when the rooster writes, "The fox is not intelligent." I also laughed at the message the chickens leave for the mailman.
Final Verdict: This is perfect for fans of animals, chickens, and humor.
