Chicken Nibbles

Chicken Nibbles is a funny cartoon book about what hens and roosters actually get up to on a daily basis, and how chicken-related words have entered Western culture and language.

This book is entertaining, informative, and very relatable. It has been written for backyard chicken-keepers past, present, and future by one who has survived that experience with all limbs still attached.

Each of the 54 high-resolution colour cartoons was drawn by award-winning cartoonist Mark Lynch, and each has an explanation, should you need it, of the finer points of the cartoon.

As Alanna Moore, author of Backyard Poultry – Naturally, put it in her review of the book, “You’re bound to have a cackle over Alan’s cartoons. You might even fall off your perch laughing!”

Warning: Some cartoons may ruffle feathers!
