The Problem with Chickens
by Bruce McMillan
Illustrated with paintings by Gunnella

The old ladies of Iceland need eggs for their recipes, but the eggs are located on a cliff. They go to the city to buy chickens so that they will have eggs. Everything is fine until the chickens start imitating the ladies. The more the chickens are like the ladies, the fewer the eggs. Ladies don't lay eggs, after all. When the eggs stop, the ladies need to devise a plan to get the chickens to start acting like birds again.

This is a fun chicken story with nice odd paintings.
