Description
For those who think their small plot of land would prevent them from ever raising livestock, this companion volume to The Backyard Homestead makes it clear that you can raise chickens, turkeys, ducks, rabbits, goats, sheep, bees—even pigs and cows—on as little as one tenth of an acre. Illustrated with drawings on nearly every page and a foldout color breed chart, this guide offers detailed instructions on such topics as keeping chickens in brooder boxes, determining the freshness of eggs hidden in the backyard, roasting a duck or goose to perfection, making goat-milk yogurt, interpreting everyday sheep behavior, harvesting honey safely, raising your own Thanksgiving turkey, and managing your beef cattle to produce the best-tasting meat.
