PDF File

Poultry can be kept in backyards of many suburban and town homes because the birds are relatively small and adaptable to a variety of conditions. A backyard poultry flock supplies the family with fresh eggs and some meat, both desirable foods of animal origin. A small flock of chickens will consume wastes from the kitchen and the garden, helping to reduce the cost for poultry feed.

Originally published in 1954 by the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, this booklet discusses such subjects as suitable breeds, houses, methods of feeding, and sanitary requirement.
