*I would like to thank the publisher, author, and NetGalley for providing an ARC copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*
Who said the barn yard wasn’t glamorous? These hens, roosters, and chicks will seriously have you reconsidering your perspective of farm life. From the Instagram famous Chicken Chick comes this lovely and heartwarming coffee table book featuring stunning photography of her famous feathered fowl.
This book was everything I want in a collection of photos, and even a little bit more. The pictures are vivid, and genuinely exude the attitude of the chicken subjects. The coop and surrounding pasture the chickens roam in are a masterpiece of their own right, and lend themselves to gorgeous backdrops in each image. I am not an avid user of Instagram, yet I made it a point to follow Mormino’s account immediately. What really put it over the edge for me was that there was a section of the book devoted to snapshots of chicken butts. It was absurdly adorable.
If you are looking for a care guide for chickens, this is not your book. Though fear not, Mormino has already published on that front (The Chicken Chick’s Guide to Backyard Chickens). This volume solely features snapshots into the lives of the flock, and I am left a bubbly mess desiring nothing more in life.
Overall, 4.5/5 moose
