Poultry are the most benign farm stock: easy to manage, resilient, and relatively productive under a variety of conditions. Anyone with a small patch of land can keep poultry for eggs, meat, and breeding. There are few greater pleasures than keeping a flock of hens and feeding them from the produce of the garden or surplus food from the house. The more commercially-minded producer will purchase proprietary foods, exploit local markets, and make a reasonable income. Whatever the level of interest, this booklet provides information that will encourage people to become more involved in poultry.
