This vintage book contains a detailed guide to breeding and rearing chickens, with information on different systems, construction of accommodation, feeding, breeding, rearing, and many other related aspects. Although old, the information contained within this book is timeless and will be of considerable utility to the modern reader with an interest in raising laying hens. Contents include: "Accommodation", "Breed and Strain", "Feeding and Management", "Breeding and Rearing", and "Counting The Cost". Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on poultry farming.
