      I read this book as a child. I didn't remember the story line, but remembered it was so captivating for me. I wanted to live in the barnyard. My daughter somehow found a copy of this book for me for mother's day and I read it in one sitting it was so wonderful. Warm fuzzies is all I can say!

      This is a wonderful book, which I read in my childhood. I saved it from my parent's home and read it to my children. They love it as well. I was surprised to find that it is out of print. The story is simple, endearing and true to life. It was a favorite then and now.

      I read this book as a little girl. I loved it and when my copy died from repeated use, I started hunting it downI went as far as contacting the publisher to see if they were going to re-print it any time soon. This is a wonderful book that tells children how they can start out as enemies,and become friends. It also showcases the way that Flossie always stays good and sweet and it gets her things that no one else can believe. It is a relevant story in today's society as when it was published in 1 [...]

      This was one of my favorite books growing us as a child. Two hens. Two different hens. I escaped through books. I thought I was Laura Ingalls in Little House. Flossie and Bossie were my hens. When school was out for summer, the bookmobile was again like a fairy tale bus. It pulled up and I could enter and check out my favorite books. Pippi Longstocking and of course Flossie and Bossie. Flossie and Bossie prepared me for symbolism before I ever took college English.

      I read this book over and over, when I was around age 10 or 11 (and I am now 60). As a young girl, I obviously adored this story about two hens, who were very different from each other--but who both wanted to be mothers. One was egotistical and vain, the other was selfless and humble. I was sad to see that it is no longer in print--but I still have my beat up copy of it down in the basement (because I could never get rid of it--it made such an impression on me, in a positive way.)

      I read this book over and over and over again in the 4th grade. Loved it then. My sister found a copy for me and sent it for Christmas three years ago. I enjoyed it all over again. It is a well written, heart warming story about quality of character versus vanity.

      I LOVE THIS BOOK! It is about two hens, a miniature and a standard. They are both hatching eggs, and they have to live together even though they hate eachother!

      Thank you to the reviewer who put in the words "Bantam hens" so that I got the hit on a Google search! Have been trying to remember this title for over 20 years now.

      One of the most charming children's books ever written. It is truly a shame that this book is not back in print!I found an old copy of this in the library as a kid, and read it over and over (until it disappeared). I searched for it for years as ad adult and finally found a copy (yes, I admit it, I obsessively tracked down a book for children—about CHICKENS!)Yup, this beautifully written book is about two Bantam hens, Flossie and Bossie. Flossie is scrawny and missing some of her dull-black fe [...]

      Recommended by a colleague, this was a book I had as a kid. Two chickens are featured in this gentle read about compassion. Flossie is scrawny and timid, while Bossie is beautiful, full of herself, and the rooster's favorite. The Hands care for the flock, relocate first Flossie, then Bossie as well, into separate coops when they have a brood. Flossie gains confidence, Bossie becomes nicer, and it all ends satisfactorily.

      I read this book as a child and loved it. It was part of the classroom library one year and I must have read it once a month. :) I used to look for it when we went to the bookstore so I could buy a copy, but never did find it.

      I absolutely love this book! It is a fantastic book that gives you a funny and heartfelt story about life in a henhouse from the hen's perspective. If you like fiction and you can get your hands on it this book you should definitely read it!!
