When is the right time to shear a sheep? Is there a market for manure? What time of day is best to collect eggs? What is the correct way to milk a goat? What does a duck eat? Can a cow and a sheep share the same pasture? Which types of rabbits are easiest to raise?

The perfect book for anyone who has ever dreamed of having that little place in the country, Barnyard in Your Backyard offers tried-and-true, expert advice on raising healthy, happy, productive farm animals: chickens, geese, ducks, rabbits, goats, sheep, and dairy cows.

Each chapter focuses on a different animal, discussing the pros and cons of raising the animal, housing and land requirements, feeding guidelines, health concerns, and a schedule for routine care. Species that are easy to raise, hardy, and companionable are profiled. First-time farmers will discover simple, clear instructions for caring for animals throughout the year, as well as guidelines for processing barnyard products such as milk, wool, and eggs. Combining practical advice from real experts, easy-to-use checklists and charts, a seasonal care calendar, and detailed black-and-white illustrations, Barnyard in Your Backyard offers a comprehensive review of the ins and outs - the tribulations and triumphs - of living with and caring for a small barnyard.

Review:
'
This book is great for beginners who love the idea of animals in the backyard, as my children do. Having all of the animals discussed in one book is a great saver on money and shelf space, as I don't have to buy 7 books on animals we will probably never own, but my kids can dream of owning. I also greatly appreciate the breakdown of information as to the reason for keeping the animal, whether as a pet, or other purpose. For my children, all animals are pets, even cows and chickens. So having information for "pet" purposes, not just eggs/meat/fur/wool/milk production was great to see. If your kids love the idea of lots of different animals in the backyard, even if it's just a dream, this is the book for you.' - Amazon review
