Originally published in the early 1930s, this extremely scarce early work on poultry keeping is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. We are now republishing it, using the original text and photographs. Two hundred and thirty three pages deal with every aspect of poultry keeping from egg to table, and will prove invaluable to both the backyard beginner and the larger commercial enterprise. Twenty detailed chapters contain much expert advise on: The Beginner; Breeds and Strains; Houses and Appliances; Foods and Feeding; Hatching; Rearing; Backyard Poultry Keeping; Intensive Poultry Keeping; Winter Egg Production; Day Old Chicks; Ducks; Turkeys; Geese; Guinea Fowls; Diseases of Poultry; Vermin; Egg Preserving; Killing and Shaping; Plucking, Drawing, Trussing; Marketing; Accounts. Etc. The book is well illustrated with photos of breeds and equipment. This is a fascinating read for any poultry enthusiast, and contains much information that is still useful and practical today. Many of the early farming books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
