I have had chickens for a long time, and please post this again in your own words: The best way to get your chickens to love you is to get chicks, roosters and hens, and cuddle them and hold them when they are little, and they will grow up to love you!

The Chickens As Pets 2016 Calendar is the second special calendar to celebrate keeping pet chickens all year round and features pet chickens belonging to members of the online Chickens As Pets community.

The new calendar has a specially commissioned poem - The Chicken Calendar Poem - written by the author of the Chickens As Pets book, Andrew Hinkinson. Each month features a two-line verse, all of the verses building into a poem that takes you through all the seasons and changing behaviours of your pet chickens in response to the time of year and weather.

The Chickens As Pets 2016 Calendar is printed on high-quality, luxurious-feel 170gsm gloss paper. It feels beautiful and substantial in the hand, and is strong and durable to last the whole year whether you have it on your kitchen, bedroom or shed wall.

The calendar is just £7.99. A bundle of the calendar with a signed copy of the Chickens As Pets book is only £19.99. International orders welcome.

The definitive guide to keeping pet chickens
Introduction

Over half a million UK households keep hens as pets and numbers are rising.

Chickens As Pets is a warm, humorous and accessible guide to everything the urban chicken-keeper needs to know. This new, updated and expanded edition includes 100 photographs and the author shares many of his own chicken stories to illustrate and advise. Includes a new foreword from Mama-Hen Mladek, founder of The Nut House, a leading Northern Ireland charity that finds homes for thousands of ex-factory hens at the end of their working lives.

Chickens As Pets Interactive Edition for iPad, iPad Mini & Mac is an immersive and entertaining experience for adults and children. There’s never been a chicken book like this before. It includes ‘test your knowledge’ quizzes, zoom-in diagrams, Web links and videos, and photographs.
