Overview
Excerpt from Western Poultry Book: Tells You What to Do and How to Do It; The Chicken Business From First to Last; With Questions and Answers Relative to Up-to-Date Poultry Culture
In the hope of helping beginners and others of my friends in the poultry business, and in response to urgent requests for a book on poultry culture from my pen, I wrote a small volume three years ago. The whole edition was sold in a year, and on account of the interest taken in it and the demand for something more, I have re-written it and added chapters on breeding in line, fireless brooders and other new features in the poultry business.
The book is a synopsis of many chapters of my "Woman's Work in the Poultry Yard" and other talks on poultry, and embodies the personal, practical experiences I have been through myself in many years of pleasant work in the poultry yard. Its object is not necessarily to urge anyone into the business, but to encourage and help beginners and especially newcomers on the Pacific Coast, where conditions differ materially from those in the East and where there is an increasingly large demand for both poultry and eggs; where the poultry business is about as profitable as any that can be undertaken and a good living may be made in the pure air and sunshine by any industrious man or woman.
Having for many years been lecturer at the Farmers' Institutes in the Extension Courses of the University of California, for four years instructor in poultry husbandry at the poultry school of the University of California, and having been editor or associate editor of four agricultural and other newspapers on the Pacific Coast, many questions have during this time been compounded to me relating to the poultry business, its difficulties, the troubles of poultry raisers and the ailments of fowls. Some of these questions will be found in this book with the answers to them, also remedies for the diseases or ills of fowls in this climate.
Hoping and feeling sure that my little book may prove a help to all its readers, I am, very cordially your friend.
