Domestic Poultry Keeping
This early work on poultry husbandry is a fascinating read for any poultry enthusiast, but also contains much information that is still useful and practical today. It will prove of much interest to the amateur poultry keeper. Illustrated with 14 diagrams and photographs. Contents Include: Making a Start, Breeds and Crosses, Housing the Layers, House Fittings and Scratching Litter, Rearing the Chicks, Hen and Chicks, Broody Hen or Foster Mother, Rearing the Layers, Feeding on Scraps and Rationed Meals, Sex-linkage and Sexing, Common Ailments, Egg Preservation, Questions and Answers, and Rationing Scheme Explained. Many of the earliest 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.
