How to Raise Poultry

By Christine Heinrichs

How to Raise Poultry by Christine Heinrichs

The wondrous world of poultry encompasses chickens, ducks, geese, swans, turkeys, guinea fowl, peacocks, pheasants, quail, partridge, pigeons, ostriches, emus, and rheas.

Poultry expert Christine Heinrichs lays out the distinctions between waterfowl (ducks, geese, and swans), turkeys, gamebirds (peafowl, pheasants, quail, and others), ratites (ostriches, emus, and rheas), and pigeons. She then clearly details the very different requirements for raising each species, from feeding and housing to husbandry and health, to showing and marketing and legal concerns.

Whether you want eggs, meat, feathers, hide, or simply beauty, this indispensable resource explains all the helpful dos and don’ts. From gourmet foods to goose down, from ostrich leather to peacock feathers, poultry expert Christine Heinrichs covers it all.

These birds can also be raised to restock hunting grounds or preserve historic breeds.

Easy-to-follow advice helps you to:

  • Select breeds
  • Feed and house your flock
  • Keep your birds healthy
  • Breed poultry
  • Hatch eggs and raise young
  • Harvest and sell products
