I just jumped on Amazon and they sell for new from $127.46 so you got yourself a bargain there! This is what Amazon say:

"Trevor Weekes, a person of quite seriously dry wit, has put together, in collaboration with the Society for Rights for Inferior Birds, this definitive guide for training your chickens to fly, much to your and their surprise. For eons, these poor birds have had to watch as eagles soared o'erhead and ducks flew the coop, and they could do nothing about it. Now, with careful instructions and a specially designed exercise machine kit to build up wing strength, the author demonstrates with detailed diagrams and illustrations how to train any chicken to fly. As well, he includes touching anecdotes about flying fowl associations and training academies. Also included is a rare photograph of the first chicken flier, named Gregory Peck. You will likely find this to be an unbelievably interesting book, as I did".

I'd love to read it! Where did you find your copy?
