Manual for small-scale breeding of broiler chickens, laying hens, and dairy goats

In 2008, Dominic Lamontagne and his partner Amélie decided to settle in Sainte-Lucie-des-Laurentides with their two children, motivated by the desire to escape the city, to take the keys to the countryside, and to learn to feed themselves. To their surprise, the project faced numerous regulatory obstacles. Despite these constraints, they managed to establish a subsistence farm on less than a hectare of cleared land, comprising a small number of dairy goats, laying hens, and broiler chickens.
