Domesticated small animals, from the cow to the rabbit, have been enjoyed by human owners around the world since the dawn of civilization, nearly 12,000 years ago. From pets to beasts of burden and even just a friendly face in the barn, animals like these produce thousands of products you use around the house every day and can be a great addition to your home, property, or small farm. For anyone looking to raise such animals though, the realities of their new furry and feathery companions can be jolting; from the care they need on a regular basis to the food they eat. This book was written for anyone considering purchasing and raising domesticated animals for family pets, producers of eggs and milk, or a friendly creature in the backyard.
