  Breeding chickens
It all depends on what your goals are and what breeds like. I sell eggs and chicks at my local Farmer's market, so I raise different breeds for eggs like Naked necks, ameraucans, rhode Island red, and dominique and others like sex links, olive eggers and marans for chicks. I also like to raise old endangered breeds. I just bought 4 White faced black spanish because I like the looks of them. If I was you, I would find one or two breeds that are your favorite,and stick with those! Bantams are also nice if you do not have alot of space and they make good pets! Good luck on your farming adventure!

Hobby Farms has some excellent books, for just starting out. Growing the family's vegetables is a very good beginning!

  Thank you for your warm welcome!!! I'm at the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, in Greece/Europe.
Yes, worm farm... for now... in my balkony, in the center of the city!
But I plan to get away! I think I'll do a worm farm, and I'll support it also by having some livestock (goats, sheep, poultry). Do you know where I could find the requirements (not regulations, biological requirements) for such livestock? For example, how much space to goats need? (shelter, pastry) How big should a chicken coop be? What if I create a small waterhole for the goose/ducks? Where can I find such information?? I'm really new... I only know how to grow some vegetables for the family during summer!!

Come visit me, escargots & aurelias.
