Yes, here it is. In order to save you time (and me breath), I have attempted to answer the most common questions I get from intending poultry neophytes.
These answers are based on over 20 years experience keeping chooks and 12 years selling them (rather than in depth research into the topic). If I’m wrong on something (and you know better) please feel free to raise it with me, but expect a discussion to ensue! Also, there may be a trick question or two in here, be aware.
Please note: the categories were selected while I was hunched over the laptop, late at night, beer in hand, and may be a little counterintuitive.
