Originally part of "The Smallholder's Pocket Guides" series, this volume contains a simple guide to producing eggs from hens during the Winter months in a garden or on a smallholding. "Winter Egg Production" contains simple, clear instructions and useful photographs intended to inform the reader about the simplest and most effective methods of raising hens, with a particular focus on housing, health, and care. Contents include: "Problem to be Ironed Out", "Here's a Good Garden Set-up", "Can we Improve on it as a House for Winter Layers?", "Now What About These", "Intensive Houses", "Batteries", "Keep the Birds Dry Under Foot", "Maintaining a Good Grass Run", "Some Points to Note from These Nests", etc. This handy volume will be of utility to anyone with an interest in keeping hens at home or in the garden. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on poultry farming.
