Although, in the beginning, the expression ‘farmyard' described a farming zone, it has evolved and is also used in modern times, particularly regarding animals raised by peasants.

Traditionally, the farmyard consisted of poultry, that is, chickens, ducks, turkeys, geese, even ostriches, quails, pheasants, guinea fowls and pigeons. Chickens are generally first on this list, because they contribute to the peasant economy in many ways. Daily with their eggs and regularly with their meat.

Other types of poultry are also raised for their eggs and their meat, but in a less systematic manner.

A farmyard often has other animals, such as rabbits, which are of interest to the peasant because of their meat and sometimes also their fur.

They are accompanied by pigs which, depending on the country and tradition, are often full members of the ‘farmyard'.
