    Interested in owning a small flock?
    Do you already have a small flock?
    Raising a backyard flock can be very rewarding for the entire family. There is an activity for everyone to participate when raising poultry. Poultry is usually classified into three categories: 1) egg layers, 2) meat-type, and 3) dual purpose.
