Incubation:A Guide to Hatching and Rearing Book for poultry, chickens, ducks etc

Availability:In Stock Product Code: 00015

We've been using this book for reference for many years now in our own poultry enterprise and would recommend it for any poultry keeper.


Katie Thear was formerly editor of the monthly magazine 'Country Smallholding', and is a life-long poultry keeper. She is the author of many books on poultry, livestock and smallholdings. This is the third edition of her best-selling book on incubation.


To many breeders of poultry and other birds, the need to incubate eggs successfully is vital. Traditionally, broody hens were used - and this is still one of the best methods- but as they are not always available when needed, artificial incubation is the answer. This book covers the techniques and equipment needed for using small to medium sized incubators and brooders, as well as the larger systems for more exotic species. The material is presented in a clear, concise way, with an emphasis on practical techniques and DIY tips throughout.


It is relevant to poultry keepers, waterfowl and game breeders, and indeed to anyone with an interest in domestic and exotic species of birds.
