How to Raise Poultry
Christine Heinrichs
ISBN: 978-0-7603-3479-9
192 pages.
$ 6 SPECIAL PRICE (Limited Quantities)
The wondrous world of poultry encompasses chickens, ducks, geese, swans, turkeys, guinea fowl, peacocks, pheasants, quail, partridge, pigeons, ostriches, emus, and rheas. 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 want eggs, meat, feathers, hide, or simply beauty, this indispensable resource explains all the helpful dos and don’ts. From gourmet foods to goose down, from ostrich leather to peacock feathers, poultry expert Christine Heinrichs covers it all. These birds can also be raised to restock hunting grounds or preserve historic breeds. Easy-to-follow advice helps you to: select breeds, feed and house your flock, keep your birds healthy, breed poultry, hatch eggs and raise young birds, harvest and sell products.

COUNTRYSIDE is the truly original country magazine (established 1917) serving that branch of the Voluntary Simplicity movement seeking greater self-reliance (homesteading), with emphasis on home food production. This includes gardening, small-scale livestock, cooking, food preservation, resource conservation, recycling, frugality, money management, alternative energy, old-time skills, home business, and
much more.
COUNTRYSIDE features reader-written personal experiences and photos straight out of family albums, making each issue just like a long letter from friends who are living the good life, beyond the sidewalks.



  Toil, feel, think, hope; you will be sure to dream enough before you die without arranging for it.
