Find encouragement and inspiration with 50 bits of wisdom from adorable, charming, and fluffy therapy chickens.

Life can be profound but also funny, exasperating, and downright weird—much like living with a flock of hens. Drawing inspiration from her own flock, author Tedra Hamel’s charming chicken art will make you laugh and teach you to be a good companion. With 50 bits of wisdom throughout this beautifully illustrated book, you will learn how to explore curiosity, embrace your true self, and let go of what holds you back.


Some bits of wisdom from these adorable chickens include: 

  • Even if you can’t fly, don’t be afraid to stretch your wings. You may just get off the ground after all!
  • Listen to the squawk of others. There really may be a hawk flying overhead.
  • You don’t have to have a huge house and lots of possessions to be happy. Your small coop is adorable, comfortable, and a wonderful home.
  • Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. Connect with others and find your flock.

The book is organized by season and advocates how to live mindfully each day and appreciate the present moment, just like chickens. Smell the newly bloomed flowers in spring, go paddleboarding in summer, start winding down in fall, and nestle in with your loved ones in winter. Live seasonally and tune your body to the natural rhythms of Earth. These bits of wisdom will teach life lessons all year round.


Today’s world is hard. For me, having a strong emotional anchor is a firm prerequisite to tuning in to the collective pain that exists. While it may sound absurd, my anchor is a flock of chickens—“my girls.” – Tedra HamelEmbrace the advice from Therapy Chickens and learn to be a little happier every day.
