Raising Poultry Successfully
Whether you are raising a small home flock of poultry or are investigating small-scale production for your farm, this book presents hands-on, practical advice. Topics covered include: deciding on a meat only, eggs only, or dual-purpose flock; where, when and from whom to buy chicks; incubation and rearing the young; home-grown versus commercially milled feeds; keeping a flock healthy; housing options; and butchering and dressing the birds. While not an organic or free-range book, this edition contains solid information on the basics of poultry raising. Copyright 1985, softcover, 190 pages.
