This Chicken Life is a heart-warming and playful celebration of chickens and the Australians who love them. Striking photography and inspiring stories show the diversity and eccentricity of Australians who adore their chickens. You'll meet Jareth Bullivant, an animal liberationist who takes his rescue chickens to the beach; Nik Round, an advertising executive who is focused on saving a heritage breed; Summer Farrelly, a 12-year-old with autism, who connects with the world through her chooks and has started a chicken therapy program; and Holly Snowflake, a comedian who performed her show, Crazy Chicken Nerd, with her silkie bantams. There are also essays on all-important topics, such as how to name your chook, the pecking order and chicken maths. This Chicken Life unpacks an obsession and a love affair. Chickens and humans, heart to heart, face to beak. This is no fad, it's a way of life.
