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. The contents are extensively illustrated with both diagrams, text drawings and photographs. Contents Include: Frontispiece; Common-Sense Poultry Plan; Way to Care for Chicks; Building Money-Making Pullets; Battery Brooding; Producing Broilers; Raising Capons; Winter Care of Layers; Getting Eggs in Summer; Handling Breeders; Hens in Batteries; Producing Quality Eggs; Egg to Egg Feeding Plan; Simple Rules for Feeding; Tips on Raising Turkeys; Feeding Ducks; Raising Game Birds; Popular Breeds of Poultry; Easy Way to Cull; If Chicks Die, Find Out Why; How to Perform a Post-Mortem; Poultry Diseases and Parasites; Check Up on Egg Production; Poultry Sanitation Products; and Purina Poultry Chows. 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.
