Joel began raising chickens when he was 10 years old and serendipitously fell into the pastured poultry concept a couple of years later when a pair of unused portable rabbit runs became available. Still the centerpiece of the farm, and the engine that drives sales, notoriety, and profit, pastured poultry has revolutionized countless farming endeavors around the world. A hard core how-to book, this includes all the stories and tips, from brooding to marketing. Centered around meat chickens, it includes a section on layers and turkeys. Many would say this book started the American pastured poultry movement. - Publisher.

This book explains exactly how to set up a business raising meat birds for the public. It covers marketing, pitfalls and practical problem solving. It is realistic and very helpful. He lives WAY further south than we do, here in Edmonton, but he covers suggestions for bad weather. He is encouraging and helpful. It is definitely a good place to start if you are thinking of doing this. Warning - the Font is atrocious! makes it hard to read at first but once you get swept up in it it doesn't matter.
