Backyard Poultry- NaturallyBook - 2014
The perfect micro-livestock for the edible backyard, the popularity of poultry is not surprising. But good information about natural poultry care can be hard to come by. This book has become a natural poultry bible for the chemical-free raising of your feathered friends. From housing to feeding, from selection to breeding, from pets to production, and from the best lookers to the best layers, the book covers everything the backyard farmer needs to know about poultry husbandry - including preventative and curative herbal medicines and homeopathic remedies for common problems. What to plant in poultry yards, following permaculture principles, is also covered; the author being a permaculture farmer who is passionate about preserving the heritage breeds, many of which are in danger of extinction. This new 3rd edition has been updated and revised, is now in full colour and has new breed photographs as well.
