I’ve Cracked up and there are Chickens Involved


So a while back an author whose social media presence often involves various critters from her farm (which I hugely enjoy) threw out an idea. Quarantine is boring. Life is stressful. We should do something

Being authors, she proposed we write. With chickens. And humor. 

I was all in. 

What came out of that prompt was an anthology full of twenty authors, and a whole bunch of funny chicken stories. They are fiction, non-fiction, science fiction, fantasy, you name it, it’s probably in here. 

Besides, it has chickens in funny stories. Need I say more? 

My story contribution to this involves a massive technical glitch on a space station, the entire flock of chickens on the run, and I got to write the line “as a vortex of chickens swirling…” 

So what are you waiting for? This is so much better than watching the news *shudder* or dwelling on the ‘new normal.’ Grab a copy of Cracked and let us whisk you away into a world where humor and disaster walk hand in hand! With chickens underfoot. 

When you’re done, leave us a review. If enough people like it, we’ll do this again. I have some really awesome ideas. 

Oh, and it also inspired the art I’m using as a header image, which you can get on T-shirts through my shop! I love chickens, can’t you tell? (and if you can’t see the sarcasm dripping there, do read my story in the anthology!)

    1. All my chickens are in the past now. I go visit my Mom’s chickens when I miss them! Sex-links are great layers, you should be very happy with them. We had a lot of heritage breeds, but you can’t beat them for consistent egg production.
