The Small-Scale Poultry Flock: An All-Natural Approach to Raising Chickens and Other Fowl for Home and Market Growers

by Harvey Ussery

Foreword by Joel Salatin

If you are inspired by the core vision of this website—greater food independence on the integrated homestead through imitation of nature—you will find my new book indispensable.

This book is unique in the literature of poultry husbandry. It is not just another backyard how-to, but strives in every topic to open out to the Big Picture—to greater food independence, sustainability, and respect for the ecology.
