      Comments about Jackie French's Chook Book:

      I had purchase this book for our grandson as he had just purchased some chickens from his local fete. My wife had always admired Jackie and her ideas on how to enjoy ones backyard so her book was ideal and while he is only 7, the whole family enjoy reading it.
      Thanks Jackie
