Now in it’s 3rd edition, Backyard Poultry- Naturally has become the bible for the chemical-free raising of your feathered friends.

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.
