9780760334799: How to Raise Poultry

Prized for their feathers or eggs, raised for their meat or their beauty or simply for fun, poultry of  a dazzling array of sorts and sizes have a place in the heart of farmers, ranchers, and bird fanciers alike.  If you want to raise fowl—of whatever kind and for whatever reason—this book is the perfect place to begin.  Poultry expert Christine Heinrichs lays out the distinctions between waterfowl (ducks, geese, and swans), turkeys, gamebirds (peafowl, pheasants, quail, and others), ratites (ostriches, emus, and rheas), and pigeons.  She then clearly details the very different requirements for raising each species, from feeding and housing to husbandry and health, to showing and marketing and legal concerns.  Whether you’re thinking of starting a flock or acquiring a few feathered friends, this handy guide tells you everything you need to know to raise healthy poultry for pleasure or profit—or both.
