KIRKUS REVIEW

Two books, under the same imprint, which together need the needs of the market interested in poultry farming. The Chapman book is designed for the small flock owners, with limited time, space and money, and emphasizes confinement methods, feed ready mixed, labor saving processes. The text falls into two main divisions, brooding young chickens for broilers and fryers, and maintaining a flock for eggs and meat. There are -- for the purpose -- adequate summaries of investment and costs, concise, clear statements of equipment, care, breeding, etc., as well as preservation and storing of eggs, quick freezing of chickens and so on. An excellent how-to-do-it book, well designed. $2.00. The Hurd book is for the bigger operator, in it for business and profit. There is metioulous coverage of every phase, including the financing and the marketing. Other kinds of poultry are included, turkeys, ducks, pigeons, pheasants, etc: The author is extension professor of poultry and husbandry at Cornell. The book is a complete handbook.
