Corinne Tippett


I am Corinne Tippett and I wrote “Just A Couple of Chickens” about my family and our poultry adventures in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was going to be a light, funny story about an urban transplant wannabe homesteader family and my blown egg and natural feather business, Then the economic crash of 2008 turned it into a very real grapes-of-wrath style memoir. My family and I moved to Portland, Oregon and we went to work turning trouble into hope, and putting it out in self published book form.

I am a writer and a mom, and a wife, daughter, aunt, niece, sister, friend… I started writing dubious poetry and wild stories at age 8, and finally began submitting material for publication in 1992. “Just a Couple of Chickens” was my first book, and my second book is an aviation history biography featuring my grandfather, Col. C. J. Tippett. It is almost ready for release. I am currently working on the chicken-book sequel, possibly titled “Just a Couple More.”

“Just A Couple of Chickens” is a genuinely enjoyable read. Laugh out loud funny, informative and utterly timely. Getting a couple of chickens was Andrew’s idea, but Corinne took it over the top with thirty fluffy pheasant, five and twenty chickens, over forty chukar, and fifteen ducklings. There were twelve smelly quail, nine girl geese, two roosters, and a partridge in a pine tree.
