Excerpt from Practical Poultry Keeping In this work I have tried to deal with the various problems of poultry keeping from a business standpoint. Poultry keeping must always be a question of conditions, and I do not advocate these methods as the only ones likely to be followed by success, but the principles which underlie them can be fitted to all occasions. It is recognised that every poultry farmer must have the capacity to adapt himself to local and geographical conditions, but he needs some principles to adapt, and these methods are the groundwork of this book. From an extensive experience of poultry under many conditions, I have tried to get out the bed rock factors which conduce towards success when they are steadily adhered to, and the dietaries advised are not merely theoretical, but have been so widely practised since first I advised them that they have become almost standard dietaries up and down the country. In this work fundamental principles have been dealt with, for to give all the details that arise from special conditions would make a work too cumbersome to be of value, but I hope that every one who uses this will be able to adapt its methods, in any case, where he cannot follow them verbatim et literatim.

Excerpt from Practical Poultry Production It will be the effort of the authors to present the basic principles and practices of poultry keeping in such a way as to awaken interest, educate and develop purpose to under take further work. It is natural and necessary, therefore, that some detail should be omitted. For example, some of the finer points of breeding, such as Mendel's Law, and elaborate points of judging are thought to be too extended and subordinate to the main object to be included.

Excerpt from The Poultry Keeper, Vol. 40: A Journal for Every One Interested in Making Poultry Pay, Devoted Particularly to Practical Poultry Keeping; April, 1923 This question is usually answered in a way which is very misleading. It is a fact that one will require more land than is usually given as an es timate. It is a mistake to crowd the fowls and we recommend that one buy more land than he thinks he will need. We believe that 100 hens is enough for one acre of land. We know this is much less to the acre than is usually estimated but we be lieve that in the end it will give bet ter results. We have seen 200 hens kept on an acre with good results but we believe that a smaller number will be safer. We would divide the acre into equal plots and rotate the chickens from one to the other. This would keep the ground in good con dition. It means more work to use more ground but it also means bet ter health for the flock. We would say that ten acres for layers and breeding stock would be sufficient land. We recommend an orchard for growing stock. Five acres should easily grow all the stock one would need to keep up the flock. One must figure in a garden and other extras so that perhaps fifteen acres would be about as small a place as one would want to try and get along with and twenty acres would be bet ter. The question which now arises is whether it would be better to do general farming or specialize. Fruit and poultry go together very well but general farming requires too much capital and at present does not pay especially well.

Poultry and Eggs for Market and Export (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Poultry and Eggs for Market and Export This pamphlet is intended as a handy guide for farmers and others in practical methods of poultry-keeping. It is only in recent years that much attention has been given in New Zealand to poultry-rearing on a large scale, and it is not always recognised that a good deal of know ledge, as well as industry, is required to insure success. It is the desire of the writer to supply this knowledge and prevent beginners from falling into the mistakes which are often made and from spending money unnecessarily. Since the work of instruction was undertaken by the Government there has been a great improvement in the class of poultry kept by farmers, in the methods practised, and in the production of table-poultry and eggs. There is room for much further improvement, and in this direction the officers of the Poultry Division of the Depart ment of Agriculture are always willing to assist with information and advice. The results will depend, as in all business undertakings, upon the skill, industry, and business capacity of those engaged in it. With good management poultry-keeping will give steady cash returns at an early period after embarking in the enterprise, and no other class of stock will give so much profit on the capital invested as poultry will. Poultry-keeping should go hand-in-hand with dairying, also with fruit growing and bee-culture. In addition to their direct profit, poultry are valuable on the farm in enriching the soil or restoring impoverished soil to a fertile condition; in the orchard they search for and devour insects of all kinds, and not a grub will escape them. Poultry-keeping is full of details: attend to these and success will follow. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

A Handbook on Utility Poultry Keeping, Embodying the American Intensive Methods, With Complete Index (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Winter Eggs: A Handbook on Utility Poultry Keeping, Embodying the American Intensive Methods, With Complete Index There can be no two opinions as to the desirability of largely developing the poultry industry in this country, and the reform of the Irish egg trade shows what can be done by adopting a rational system of collection and marketing. But this little book deals with another aspect of the case, giving full details of the American intensive system of poultry rearing, which is now on its trial in this country, in the h0pe that it may lead to a large increase in production. It seems to be generally agreed that - apart from the production of pedigree 'stock and the taking of pupils - poultry farming on the ordinary English lines does not pay when considerable sums have to be expended on food, and a large area devoted to its practice. It is of course a most valuable accessory industry, regarded as a means of utilising certain forms of waste, and is sufficiently remunerative on a small scale. The American system enables an enormous reduction to be made in the space required, and claims to reduce the cost of production so that satisfactory profits can be made even when large quantities of food have to be bought. The author has made a careful theoretical and practical study of the subject, and the numerous poultry-keepers who desire to test the intensive system will find this book a thoroughly practical guide. But even if American methods are proved to be suitable for Britain, success in their application cannot'be expected without co-n stant supervision, and strict attention to detail. J R.

Excerpt from The Eastern Poultryman, Vol. 4: August, 1903 There is an extremely common notion among the rank and file of poultry keepers, market poultrymen and fanciers, that nearly every one who writes for the poultry papers is a theorist, a dreamer, a paper poultryman, or, in other words, a person who lacks practical experience in the matters about which he, or she, writes. While there is plenty of evidence that a few writers have no practical knowl edge oi their subject, it is still true in poultry keeping, as in other pursuits, that deep-dyed prejudice, impregnable ignoro ance and monumental self-conceit are the main springs from which comes the pop ular idea that the majority of writers are unpractical. The present writer does' not wish to offend anyone, but there are some things having a great bearing upon this delicate subject that every reader of a poultry paper should consider. The fact that a person has kept hens five or fifty years does not of itself prove that he is, a practical poultry keeper or that he has any but an excessively ele mentary knowledge of hens. The writer knows a man who used to frequently boast that he was a practical musician and would not take a back seat for any man in the state of when it comes right down to business. The fact was that while this man has had some experience in what some might call 'musical organizations' for thirty or more years, he was not a musician at-all in any proper sense of the term. The more he practiced music the worse he became for he started wrong and had no use for theories (facts). The more experience that type of person has the less they know for they are either going backward or treading up and down in one place, making no progress whatever.
