Books Info:

Beyond the Chicken free pdf In Beyond the Chicken, author and lifelong poultry keeper Kelly Klober turns his attention to alternative poultry ventures. The newfound interest in heritage breeds of chicken has created a unique opportunity for small farmers to reintroduce consumers to other types of poultry. Ducks, pigeons, and guinea were all once ubiquitous on the family farm, and the market is opening to them once again among influential chefs and foodies. From geese to quail to peahens to turkeys, Klober discusses the pros and cons of each and how to best fit an alternative poultry venture into your farming operation. Filled with humorous personal anecdotes and practical advice on feeding, housing, pricing and marketing, this book is a must-read for the small farmer interested in an alternative to the ever-present white egg-laying chicken or any lover of poultry

About Klober Kelly

KELLY KLOBER was raised on a small, mixed-livestock farm in Middletown, Missouri, where he began a lifetime of experience with various livestock species - including a range of poultry species. His grandparents, real country folk, raised White "English" Leghorns and sold three hundred dozen farm-fresh eggs along their weekly egg route in St. Louis County, Missouri. Klober has been active in poultry and livestock breed preservation for more than thirty-five years. He holds a state farmer degree from the Missouri FFA and has long been involved in 4-H Clubs in a leadership role. Klober is the author of hundreds of articles and multiple books on small-scale farming, including Talking Chicken and Dirt Hog. Klober and his wife continue to farm about twenty miles east from where Klober was raised, with much love and attention to their heritage poultry flock
