Living in the city or on a smaller property means that keeping a breeding flock of chickens is difficult. Often urban homesteaders don’t have the space or the legal ability to become more self-sufficient with traditional poultry. You may want to consider raising Coturnix Quail. Quail produce both meat and eggs quickly and efficiently. They can even be kept in a garage or indoors if you are severely limited on space for livestock.
