Anyone who is interested in keeping birds, poultry and other outdoor varieties of caged animal will know that the most expensive part of their hobby is probably purchasing the housing. However, for a modest financial outlay it is possible to make your own livestock housing and this practical book shows you exactly how to do it. What sets the book apart from others is that the author has taken the time to try his own ideas out. He has actually built all the housing projects that are described and has taken photographs at the important stages of construction.

The ethos of this book is that simplicity of design is the key to helping msot readers to 'have a go'. The projects include a chicken house, a chicken run, a dog kennel, a bantam house, a dovecote, a rabbit hutch, an aviary, a ferret hutch, a brooder box, a duck house, a goose hut and a quail cage. All of the projects are explained in a consistent fashion and the text is fully supported by diagrams and colour photographs.

" Joe Jacobs has done it again. In his third book Joe looks at the construction of small animal housing for poultry and a variety of pets, and shows that, for a modest outlay, you can make something that would cost considerably more if bought commercially. "
