Aimed at smallholders, hobbyists and enthusiasts, this book is designed to cater for the needs of those who have only limited resources, both in time and money.
It offers comprehensive information on breeds, stock selection, housing and equipment, and shows how the use of controlled artificial lighting can increase egg production.
Advice on breeding, health and disease make the book valuable reading to both commercial keepers and those interested in showing.
