Synopsis

First published in 1920, this book describes in detail all of the elements necessary to become a poultry breeder. Poultry men and women alike should appreciate the details of how to pick and choose their chickens and how to run a larger-scale operation. Whether they are producing exhibition stock or birds with heavy egg-producing ability, readers will discover that poultry breeding provides both challenge and interest for the breeder. Breeding also serves as an outlet for artistic expression by allowing the breeder to mould shape and colour combination to meet his or her ideal. This guide covers a vast range of topics, including: the principles of breeding, breeding for increased production, classes of poultry and preparing fowl for show. Complete with numerous line illustrations, this book provides you with all the information and know-how you should need to become an expert poultry breeder and caregiver.

HARRY M. LAMON and ROB R. SLOCUM were the Senior Poultrymen at the Bureau of Animal Industry for the US Department of Agriculture.
