This special re-print of Edward Farrington's "Home Poultry Book" contains a treasure trove of information on chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, guinea fowl and other types of backyard poultry.

Written in 1913, this classic text includes all the basics needed to get started in poultry, be it for a hobby, home production of meat and eggs, or as a business proposition.

Chapters include How To Make A Beginning, Selecting a Breed To Keep, The Kind of Poultry House To Build, Feeding A Little Flock, Hatching Chicks With a Machine or a Hen, Brooding the Newly Hatched Chicks, How To Get Eggs in the Winter, Keeping Poultry In Town, Breeding Fancy Poultry, Ducks, Geese and Guinea Fowl, Some Open Poultry Secrets, Insect and Other Poultry Pests and more.

A must read for those interested in Poultry of all varieties.

One of the more informative books of its kind, in our opinion.

Note: This edition is a perfect facsimile of the original edition and is not set in a modern typeface. As a result, some type characters and images might suffer from slight imperfections or minor shadows in the page background.
