What happens at Nuthatcher Farm when the chickens get tired of the same old chicken feed? The rooster hatches a plan! With a pinch of genius, a dash of resourcefulness, and a little pilfering from the farmer's garden, the chickens whip up a scrumptious snack of chips and salsa. When the rest of the barnyard gets a whiff of the spicy smells and want to join in, it can mean only one thing . . . FIESTA! But when the big day arrives, all their spicy southwestern supplies are gone! Could Mr. and Mrs. Nuthatcher have caught on to the flavor craze? (summary from Barnes & Noble)

It's the day of the big game at Nuthatcher Farm, and the rooster is sure that buffalo wings would be the perfect snack for the football-watching frenzy. But he doesn't quite follow the recipe directions, and before you can say "touchdown!" he heads west in search of a certain missing ingredient. The rooster's quest is full of surprises, unexpected adventures, and of course, the perfect ending to his road-trip saga: the ultimate snack for a football fiesta. (summary from book jacket)
