Ward Lock's Poultry Book - A Guide for Small Or Big Poultry Keepers, Beginners and Farmers
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 as well as those in the field of agriculture. Extensively illustrated with text and full page photographs. Contents Include: The Beginner; Breeds and Strains; Houses and Appliances; Foods and Feeding; Hatching; Rearing; Domestic Poultry Keeping; Intensive Poultry Keeping; Winter Egg-Production; Day-Old Chicks; Ducks; Turkeys; Geese; Guinea Fowls; Diseases of Poultry; Enemies of Poultry; Egg-Preserving; Killing and Shaping; Marketing; Accounts; and an Index. 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.
