What a fun book. Anyone who lives in the country will delight reading this. Especially if you raise chickens--or turkeys or ducks or geese or even partridges and pheasants. The quintessential city folks, the author and her husband wanted to live-off-the-land so came to New Mexico. Then when the kids came along, they wanted the kids to learn about the cycle of life. And peeking into their lives you’ll laugh heartily as the author makes mistakes, learns, makes yet another mistake, all the while her kids watching and commenting. At times you’ll get to enjoy a good belly laugh.

With the first delivery of chickens, the author, now a stay-at-home mom, decides she needs an income. And chooses to raise exotic birds. There is a market for their eggs and feathers, and the author shares all she learned. Trouble is she didn’t leave much out and the book tends to ramble; in the middle, where books often do, it begins to sag. But the story picks up again, ends on a happy note, and even includes a reference for raising the different breeds of fowl if you’re so inclined.
