As much as we'd like to cluck and crow along with our feathered friends, understanding what our chickens are trying to tell us is usually much more nuanced than that. In this how-to guide, best-selling author, Melissa Caughey, breaks it all down, explaining equine behavior and answering the questions that keep flock-keepers up at night. You'll learn firsthand how chickens use their senses, establish pecking order and interact with one another. This INDIES Silver Award Winner uses scientific facts and interviews to explain the quirks that make chickens so unique—like, do chickens have names for each other? How do they learn? For a chicken-farmer, "speaking chicken" can help you bond, communicate and create a trusting relationship with your flock.
