Most of us want a dog, or a cat, or a pony when we are young - for Arthur Parkinson, it was always hens. Growing up in an ex-mining town in Nottinghamshire, the other kids in the playground called him 'Chicken Boy'. From the local allotments and his nan’s back garden to Chatsworth and an unlikely friendship with the late Duchess of Devonshire, this book tells the story of the love and satisfaction to be found in caring for living things.
