Poultry Production

The Practice and Science of Chickens

As the poultry industry moved to high-density confinement, practical, scientifically based books for raising modest numbers of chickens became as rare as hen's teeth. Poultry books began to segment into weighty tomes for PhD's and light, well-meaning works that revive all the 19th-century supersitions that our forefathers worked so hard to debunk. Fortunately, we can find what we need by turning back the clock and putting the best books back into print. This book, the 9th edition of Poultry Production, is from 1961: old enough that smaller flocks, free range, and do-it-yourself feed and fixtures were still common, but new enough be relevant today, and grounded in modern science. Leslie Card's descrption of carefully tested methods allows you to move forward with your own flock. Poultry Production contains graphs, tables, and other aids to understanding (for example, a graph showing how a concrete floor affects the air temperature at floor level, warming it by more than 5 F in cold weather and cooling it by more than 15 F in hot weather). This kind of detail means there's a place for Poultry Production on every chicken owner's shelf. Leslie E. Card (1883-1968) was Professor of Animal Science at the University of Illinois, Urbana. Poultry Production is volume 8 of the Norton Creek Classics series. See http: // for these practical, best-of-breed poultry books.

The Beak Trimming Handbook for Egg Producers is a straightforward, practical guide to beak trimming of egg-laying hens to minimise cannibalism. It provides comprehensive information on why birds peck and how pecking can lead to problems like cannibalism; the methods available to beak trim birds; why a particular method should be chosen; and at what age birds may be trimmed. The book addresses quality control of beak trimming, enabling egg producers to be confident that equipment is properly set up, that birds are handled and trimmed according to best practice and farm biosecurity is maintained. Management of birds following beak trimming, to protect of the welfare of the birds and to ensure maximum productivity, is covered in detail. Best-practice, current methods of beak trimming, costs of trimming and ways to reduce the use of trimming are examined, along with expected future developments. The advantages and disadvantages of beak trimming are fully explored, covering both public and industry attitudes to the operation. Alternatives to beak trimming are canvassed to understand how the use of fitted devices, enrichment devices, abrasives, low lighting and the choice of low-pecking strains of birds can reduce the need for beak trimming. Finally, the book discusses strategies for minimising cannibalism and how the chosen strategy may be documented and justified. Please note that this book is spiral-bound.

This publication provides guidance for personnel in governments, development organizations and NGOs to better determine and plan development interventions for family poultry. The decision tools address the situation of four distinct family poultry production systems and their development opportunities: small extensive scavenging, extensive scavenging, semi-intensive production and small-scale intensive production. They describe the poultry production systems, including their required inputs and expected outputs and the techniques and tools used to assess the operational environment, in order to design interventions suited to the local conditions. Practical technical information are provided about genetics and reproduction, feeds and feeding, poultry health, housing, marketing and value chain development, microfinance and credit, institutional development, training and extension, and creating an enabling policy. Guidance is then provided on how to utilize this relevant information to design and develop projects targeted at specific conditions.
