    I loved this book so much. Having been dreaming of getting chooks (in Australia) for a couple of years I have devoured countless books & articles on the subject. None have given me such a wonderfully satisfying book length account of the chicken owner’s journey, filled with a wealth of information, some of which I had read nowhere else. Now I know why some eggs smell fishy! I felt so much empathy with the feelings expressed at different times, but must confess I almost cried when I read of the dispatching of Ruby. I concur that we should be able to face up to realities of what we eat but fear I would need the whole bottle of wine to cope as well as you did!
    I will recommend this book far & wide, one read is not enough, I shall soon start it again.
    Thank you.
