Jackie French loves chooks: “There’s nothing more beautiful than a mob of White Leghorns like sailing ships flying with the wind, comfortable Australorps in their fluffy black knickers dedicatedly sifting through the old tomato bed for insects and titbits, or a tribe of Isa Browns scratching under the lavender. There’s no sound as domestic, either, as a mob of chooks clucking in the backyard. It gives you a feeling of safety and security.”
Use this book, and you’ll love chooks too:
- love to keep them, scratching about in your own backyard, and
- love to eat them, prepared from one of Jackie’s many mouthwatering chicken-and-egg recipes
