Review by Lee Lynn.
A girl moves onto her deceased uncle's poultry farm. She finds a few strange chickens that definitely have an aura of mystery about them. I really enjoyed this book and think the GCBA nomination it was given is 100% deserved. I would especially recommend this book to the fifth through seventh grade age group.
