get your own copy

'Cause Gibson is hogging mine...Chick Days released today in bookstores. It's my new paperback on beginner chicken care. Think "What to Expect When You're Expecting" but with chickens. It's a day-by-day guide for the new chicken keeper. Starting with day one to laying age, it follows three birds from fluffball to bonefide hen with Mar's amazing photography and advice from my experiences at Cold Antler. There are also songs, recipes, stories, and more inside. This aint your grandmother's chicken book, son.

Edit: So I found out that the Release Date and Publisher's Date are different. The Release Date means the books are printed and on their way to stores and it's going to be up on shelves. It doesn't come out until Jan. Sorry, I was confused too.

We've kept chickens for a few years, yet I still plan to buy this book. Good luck with it, Jenna.

Wow! A working sheep farm and two books under your belt. How old did you say you were?

Seems to me you're doing something right.

Congrats!

Congratulations Jenna! As someone who still plans to publish as well, I can imagine the pride. Looking forward to investing in both your books as I draw closer to my dream :)

Sadly, no one near me has it. They all still show a Jan 11th release date and can't order it either... guess I'll have to wait. Bummer.

Does it matter to you where we buy it? As in, is there a particular channel that benefits YOU more (or less, for that matter)?

YAY! I've had this on pre-order at Amazon since you announced its completion!! Why is the release to bookstores before Amazon? Aren't they usually the same?
