About this book

A growing interest in keeping livestock and living sustainably has encouraged many people to keep poultry as part of a self-sufficiency dream. Traditional British Poultry Breeds is a practical guide for both novice and experienced poultry-keeper alike. It identifies the basic British poultry breeds and assesses the qualities of each, explaining their attributes to help today's hobbyist understand which breeds are most suited to their needs. Detailed photographs clearly show the appearance of each breed and what should be looked for or avoided when selecting breeding stock.

"This practical book is ideal for experienced keepers and beginners about to embark on keeping chickens, and would be ideal to take to a poultry auction so that you are well-informed before you get caught up in the excitement of bidding."
The Landsman
