In Beyond the Chicken, author and lifelong poultry keeper Kelly Klober turns his attention to alternative poultry ventures. The recent 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 and quail to peahens and turkeys, Klober discusses the pros and cons of each and how best to fit an alternative poultry venture into your farming operation.

Filled with humorous personal anecdotes and practical advice on feeding, housing, and marketing, this book is a must-read for the small farmer seeking an alternative to the ubiquitous white egg-laying chicken or for any appreciator of the vibrant world of poultry.
