        Comments about The Contented Chook:

        Purchased the book for a gift for a friend who was pestering husband about building a chook house. The book gave him ideas, got him motivated and negated a lot of his issues he was previously putting forward to his wife as to why he should not build one. No more excuses for him !!!
