Commercial and backyard poultry production: Bringing two worlds together for better biosecurity

Extension Professor
Mississippi State University Extension Service, Poultry Science Department
Mississippi State, MS

One is the multibillion-dollar commercial poultry industry that supplies high-quality, reasonably priced protein to the US and much of the rest of the world. The other side is the increasingly popular backyard segment found in both rural and urban areas, where small numbers of chickens are kept for meat, eggs, entertainment, exhibition and youth projects.
