"We have a small farm with about 60 goats, 12 wool sheep, about 3 dozen chickens, 4 cows, and 3 meat-rabbits. We keep a small library of Storey's Guides for reference. These books are very good. All books that we have (chickens, rabbits, goats, sheep) are very practical and are written for the farmer and producer rather than solely for the pet-owner. They contain butchering information in most of the books and also some very good-sounding recipes (I've tried one for rabbit that was very good). Anyone starting with a new species would do well to read over one of these books; it might save some costly mistakes at the outset."
