The Home Poultry Flock
Thacker, G. H.
This leaflet will help you start a flock at home, from information on how to obtain chicks to disposal of the flock. Information on shelter, equipment needed, feeding, and caring for the birds and the eggs. Diagrams of chick brooders and simple, inexpensive, convenient housing for the hobby flock are included. Since the publication was updated last in 1996, readers would be well advised to check current costs of feeds and chicks with current market prices.
