How To Raise Poultry for Fun or Profit on DVD

Poultry farming is the practice of raising poultry, such as chickens, turkeys, ducks, and geese, as a subcategory of animal husbandry, for the purpose of farming meat or eggs for food.

More than 50 billion chickens are reared annually as a source of food, for both their meat and their eggs. Chickens farmed for meat are called broiler chickens, whilst those farmed for eggs are called egg-laying hens. In total, the UK alone consumes over 29 million eggs per day. Some hens can produce over 300 eggs a year. Chickens will naturally live for 6 or more years. After 12 months, the henís productivity will start to decline.

The vast majority of poultry are raised using intensive farming techniques. According to the Worldwatch Institute, 74 percent of the world's poultry meat, and 68 percent of eggs are produced this way. One alternative to intensive poultry farming is free range farming.

Today more and more cities including, New York, Vancouver, Toronto and others are allowing the raising of poultry - a boon for backyard farmers. This collection of 35 vintage poultry raising books lets you easily learn the ins and outs of raising chickens, turkeys, geese, ducks, etc both for yourself or as a profitable money making business!
