Did you know that once they get used to people, chickens enjoy being petted?
It’s true! Though not as common as cats or dogs when it comes to being a pet of choice, chickens have been domesticated for around 10,000 years and are enjoying a moment as an increasingly common household animal. Today is a day to appreciate our feathered friends and to spare a thought for the importance of farms providing humane conditions for chickens in a commercial setting. To celebrate the day, we’ve chosen three books set on farms.
