Poultry are the most benign farm stock; easy to manage, resilient and relatively productive under the most varied conditions. Anyone with a small patch of land can keep poultry for their eggs and meat, and for 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 reasonable income. Whatever the level of interest or scale, this booklet provides the information to encourage people to become more involved.
