CLUCK Bookshelf: Susan Orlean's ANIMALISH

Just days after learning Alice Walker has a new book about chickens, we now learn Susan Orlean (The Orchid Thief)  is coming out with a new essay/book Animalish that will, among other things, get to her deep connections to chickens. In fact, the New York Times features a picture cuddling a favored hen, Mabel Black Label. The Times article revealed that her latest acquisition of Swedish Flower hens came from Florida, we suspect from Greenfire Farms.
