I used to work with this chap. He was a bit rough but I enjoyed our conversations and his mindset in this regard. He did the allotment gig and kept birds: pigeons, birds of prey. He used to tell me random out of the box thinking stuff like he'd collected aquatic snails, farmed them in a tank and sold them in the past, and insects. I can't remember which ones though. Think he'd done aquarium fish as well. Basically like micro-'livestock'. I got into the gardening/food growing meme last year. I made my back yard basically a garden allotment. Grew a couple of buckets of potatoes, some beans, and other stuff. I sold a few plants too like tomatoes, apple saplings too. Didn't make a lot but it was a cool experience playing 'homesteader' - that's the dream. Was thinking about Quail, possibly chickens. What are some good niche/small creatures / animals I could 'farm'?
