Description
Originally published in 1895, this delightful little volume extols the virtues of keeping a few chickens, ducks, or geese in the backyard, and includes 16 color plates along with the usual complement of black and white photos and drawings. Jacob Biggle's aim was to "help farmers and villagers conduct the poultry business with pleasure and profit," and here he describes various breeds of chickens, turkeys, guinea fowl, ducks, geese, and pigeons; the most common diseases and enemies of our feathered friends; how to raise hens expressly for eggs rather than meat; and the art of hatching eggs and caring for chicks. First published at the turn of the 20th century and prized ever since for their practical tips and sage advice, Jacob and Harriet Biggle's well-illustrated books are classics of farm literature. Their humane instructions and warmly amusing maxims are timeless, particularly for those who have decided to start their own small farms.
