Excerpt from Wright's Book of Poultry: Revised and Edited in Accordance With the Latest Poultry Club Standards The task of an Editor called upon to undertake a new edition of such a work as Lewis Wright's Book of Poultry is simplified by the fact that in its many successive editions its author kept it so well abreast of the times that the reviser's task consists chiefly of additions concerning new varieties introduced since the book was last published in 1904. Certain statements in the text, it is true, had to be modified in the light of later experiences, and especially was this the case in connection with the references to American poultry plants, for many of those described in the last edition are now defunct, and the space devoted to them has been made use of in other directions. Still, as far as possible, Lewis Wright's text has been supplemented rather than altered. Specialists in each variety have rendered me, as Editor, the same kindly help that they did the author in supplying notes on the different varieties where alterations or additions were necessary, and my friend, Mr. F. J. Broomhead, has assisted me in the book's general revision, and especially in connection with the incorporation in the work of The Poultry Club's new and revised standards of perfection issued in 1910. The addition of these latest standards of perfection, amplified and thoroughly revised as they have been by Mr. W. W. Broomhead since Mr. Lewis Wright's death, mark an important advance in the usefulness of The Book of Poultry. It is right to state here that, except as regards this work and the volume of the Poultry Club, the copyright in these standards is reserved.

When Jacob Biggle first published his book on the management of poultry, there were more than 300 million chickens and 30 million other domesticated fowl in the United States. Today, the trend continues with thousands if not millions of chickens and other fowl being raised in suburban and urban backyards across America. Biggle’s aim was to “help farmers and villagers conduct the poultry business with pleasure and profit.” To that end, this handy little volume contains all the information the reader needs to know, such as: The various breeds of chickens, turkeys, guinea fowl, ducks, geese, and pigeons The most common diseases and enemies that threaten our feathered friends Raising hens expressly for eggs rather than meat The farmer’s flock versus the village hennery The art of hatching eggs and caring for chicks Written for the practical farmer who raises poultry and eggs for market,The Biggle Poultry Book will also appeal to collectors of farm ephemera and anyone else who is nostalgic for a simpler way of doing things. Illustrated with sixteen color plates by Louis P. Graham, and hundreds of black-and-white photographs and illustrations throughout, The Biggle Poultry Book is as beautiful as it is useful and a treasure for the home library.
