Here’s a funny, poignant, wry look at the backyard phenomenon of raising chickens for eggs, meat or just plain pets. Additional stories by Jane Hamilton, Michael Perry, and Ben Logan. "The Return of Big Tiny" copyright S.V. Medaris Read about Big Tiny, the rooster that made the hens swoon; Buff Orpingtons and Welsummers named for poets and writers; and scary creatures of the night that strike terror into many a feathered breast. Chapters include The Joy of Chix, Tastes Like Chicken, Wicked Roosters This Way Come, How to Hypnotize a Chicken, The Zen of Hens, and many more. For animal lovers, pet owners, and art enthusiasts who enjoy tales well told. “Susan Troller’s clever prose, in a series of essays about various aspects of raising and appreciating chickens, is enhanced magnificently by beautiful art from S.V. Medaris.” —The Capital Times, Madison, Wisconsin Big Tiny had the confidence of a born leader, he never seemed to be in a hurry, and he had a calm, capable demeanor in all kinds of company. As other, lesser roosters squabbled, fluffed, and fought, Big Tiny strolled on by, magisterial and measured. "Let them sort it out. I have more important things to do, like find some bugs for these fine hens," he seemed to say. Naturally, as Sue tells it, the girls couldn't get enough of him. "When Big Tiny came out of the coop, there was always this kind of a thrill, and it just looked like the hens were swooning. It was always, 'Ooooooooh, Big Tiny, here he comes. He's soooooooo cool.'"
