OLD & RARE BREEDS OF POULTRY
by J. Butler
Published by Beech Publishing House. 1st thus. 1997
Nearly fine condition. New Edition. From the 1840s old and rare breeds flourished being kept for poultry farming and as a hobby, often being shown. Then came the decline, the noble birds being replaced by birds which laid the maximum and ate the least amount of food... Now it has been discovered that these battery cages cause pain and suffering. There is a good chance that these standard breeds will now return to their rightful place in supplying eggs... Blue cardwraps. B/w illustrations.
