This bundle will show you how to grow quality chickens in even the smallest backyards, and how to become a homesteader, even if you live in a city, and have little or no space for agriculture. Here's what you'll learn: How to choose the breed of chicken to farm, based on whether you want to grow them for eggs, meat or both What to look for when purchasing that first flock of birds How to prepare their habitat, and what it has to contain for successful and organic farming How to feed and grow healthy chickens, without drugs and other damaging compounds How to raise chickens in any surroundings, including backyards Numerous professional tips for raising, housing and caring for your flock Everything about backyard homesteading, what it entails and how to become a homesteader How to start this project the right way, by following important homesteading principles How to homestead if you live in the city or own a very small backyard Techniques for gardening and producing fruits, vegetables and mushrooms Building tips for everyone who want to make their own sheds and furniture And much more!
