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.


“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.”

“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.”
