Books About Chickens and Poultrykeeping
We have also reissued three classic poultry books: The Dollar Hen, Genetics of the Fowl, and Feeding Poultry. It is impossible to praise these books too highly. The Dollar Hen had more influence on us than any other poultry book. It set us on the path to successful and profitable free-range egg farming. Genetics of the Fowl taught us a great deal about poultry breeding -- enough that we are often mistaken for experts. Feeding Poultry is the best book we've found on practical poultry nutrition -- accessible enough to be read by the practical farmer, but detailed enough to be used by professionals.
All these books recognize the value of folks with small operations; they were written before factory-farming took hold.
