Cocky Doodle Doo: My Sordid Life in the Hen House

Rate this book
Not all chickens are created equal...
Stuffed in a grab bag and transported to a farm via the US Postal Service, Reginald discovers he's far more than a mail order rooster. His fondness for reading, adventure, humans and hens attract attention- both wanted and unwanted. Bullies, babies, predators and paramours are just a few of the things he has to navigate in this zany, coming of age, "rooster 'rotica."

This is Book 1 in the Cocky Doodle Doo series, with plenty of adventures to come!

Note: While most of the story is family friendly, this book contains "adult chicken situations".

70 pages, Kindle Edition

This is one of those things that, on paper, sounds like it shouldn't work: it's a "memoir" told from the perspective of a rooster recalling his life experiences, told as a coming-of-age story from birth. Overall, it's a pretty silly story that somehow remains grounded in its exposition and exploration of characters. The chickens all have distinct personalities, and the overall narrative kind of revolves around the need to get over yourself and come together in the face of hardship.

My only real complaint is that the story is too short. The ending sets things up neatly for the next book in the series, but I feel like the book actually goes pretty deep into an interesting direction and then stops.

This series is in the process of being updated and all adult content removed. The other books only have mild adult humor. This particular book was the raciest of the bunch because it was originally written as a protest to the Cocky copyright fiasco and ended up in an anthology.

The newest version of Cocky Doodle Doo is up with a new cover, and should have the words "Updated 2021" in the copyright section. It's completely family-friendly. We're working on getting the audio books updated as well, but that may take a few months.

A fun and relaxing story.

The first book of the series deals with the birth and the amusing life of Reginald, a smart and literate rooster in a diverse farm.

Reginald takes us on a fun journey where challenges, friends, and enemies await. The unique subject and the humorous style of narration add to the overall beauty of the story.

I think the woman folk lack diversity here, and I'd like to see a different and strong female chicken in the upcoming stories.

Recommended for anyone looking for a quick read.

This first book in the Cocky Doodle Doo series, funny enough called, Cocky Doodle Doo was not too bad. It may not be one good for really young children, but I think it does a great job of teaching about bullying and how to work together. The animals working together to defeat their bully gives Maggie the strength or courage to deal with hers.

Lawrence Locke does a great job of bringing the different characters to life for you. Lol, although I not too sure about the singing that was attempted. I wasn't sure if I wanted to laugh or cover my ears or maybe both!

A brief beginning exposing how Reginald came to the farm and a family of sorts was created.
I was worried for him, I cheered for him, I laughed. Not only is this a chicken & rooster story, it deals with life and death. Heart warming, The scenes involving coming of age and what happens naturally are written very tastefully.
I look forward to future adventures.

REALLY didn't like this one. I will not be trying anymore of this series. This one spent more time discussing chickens having sex behind a mulberry bush than anything else, to the point I felt uncomfortable and like there was something wrong with me because I chose the book. Nope. I am done.
