Poultry Management

Date: 1907
Creator: Bell, George A. (George Arthur), b. 1879
Description: "This paper is confined entirely to the chicken industry, as it was found that to treat thoroughly all phases of poultry raising would make a bulletin of undue length, and furthermore, turkeys, ducks, geese, guinea fowls, etc., are covered in a satisfactory manner by other publications of the Department.

The methods used on some of these farms are described, and some of the houses and appliances are illustrated." -- p. 2
