Interest in free-range poultry is increasing, as consumers turn away form tasteless, battery-reared birds and toward hand-reared ones. An increasing number of people are keeping and rearing fowl themselves, in small allotments, urban gardens, and small-scale farms. This book is the place for anyone wishing to raise poultry - for feathers, eggs, meat, beauty - this book is an essential resource and perfect place to begin. Poultry expert Christine Heinrichs lays out distinctions between waterfowl - ducks, geese, swans - turkeys, game birds such as pea fowl, pheasants, quail, partridge and others, ratites such as ostriches, emus, rheas, and pigeons. She clearly details the very different requirements for raising each species, from feeding and housing, husbandry and health, showing and marketing. Whether you are starting a flock, or keeping a handful of birds this guide tells you everything you need to know, and is written in a clear, logical, practical manner.
