About the Book

This warmhearted chapter book about an environmentally-conscious family will provide plenty of clucks and lots of chuckles for young readers.

When Daniel’s class hatches chicks as a science project, he adopts them. His eco-friendly family can’t wait to raise their own eggs—until they discover that chickens can get into a surprising amount of trouble. In fact, Daniel finds out that his favorite bird, Peepers, isn’t a hen but a rooster, and therefore illegal to keep in the city of Portland. The Secret Chicken Society is quickly formed to save Peepers.

★★★THE REVIEWS ARE IN!★★★

“A funny story with endearing characters both human and fowl, this is a great choice for readers just moving on to chapter books. . . . Accessible and rewarding.”
School Library Journal

“Lively vocabulary, a jaunty font, silly chicken clichés, entertaining black-and-white spot illustrations, and back-matter recommendations for at-home egg hatching support the success of this early chapter book.”
Booklist

“A great supplement to a science unit as a read-aloud or book club selection. Independent readers who enjoy humorous adventures will find this a good read.”
Library Media Collection
