Originally published in 1867. The well illustrated contents include early information on all aspects of poultry including: - Housing - Management - Hatching and Rearing - Table Poultry - Breeding for Show - Cochins - Brahmas - Malays and Indian Game - Game Fowls - Dorkings - Spanish, Minorcas and Leghorns - Hamburghs - French Breeds - American Breeds - Bantams - Turkeys - Guinea Fowl - Ducks - Geese - Swans - and much more. Many of the earliest poultry books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Home Farm Books are republishing many of these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
