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: Origin Of Fowl, Management, Breeding, Incubation, Rearing, Nutrition, Culling and Selection, Diseases Of Poultry, Housing, The Egg, The Moult, Ducks Geese, Turkeys, Heads and Eyes, and a Glossary of Technical Terms. 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.
