This early work on Pigeon Keeping is an engrossing read for any pigeon enthusiast of historian of the hobby, but also contains much information that is still pertinent and practical today. Extensively illustrated with explanatory diagrams and text photographs, forming a complete how-to guide. Contents Include: The Loft and Aviary, Management-Breeding, Rearing, Feeding, Selection-Crossing versus In-Breeding, The Moult, Judging, Showing, Preparation, The English Carrier, The Dragoon, Barb, and Antwerp, The Pouter, The Norwich Cropper, And The Pigmy Pouter, The Frill Family, Show Homer, Exhibition Homer and Genuine Flying Homer, The Tumbler Family, Other Varieties, Sporting Pigeons, Squab-Rearing for Table Purposes, Diseases, and Pigeons As Messengers. 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.
