Today I talk about the benefits of poultry.
*Meat – Not the primary use but definitely something that can be considered and accounted for.
*Eggs – Probably the #1 reason to keep poultry.
*Variety – Whether you have a lot of room or none, you can find the right species and breed for you. From quail to ostriches you are only limited by imagination.
*Manure – Some of the highest nitrogen fertilizer you can’t buy.
*Pest/Weed Control – From quail eating small beetles out of your garden to guineas eating ticks to turkeys eating insects too large to handle otherwise.
*Pets - Some of my best friends have been birds.
*Financially – Find out how two country bumpkin teenage boys were able to turn a profit year after year.
