Rev. and Ed. in Accordance with the Latest Poultry Club Standards
Author: Lewis Wright
Excerpt from Wright's Book of Poultry: Revised and Edited in Accordance With the Latest Poultry Club Standards The book OF poultry since its first edition in 1872 thus remains unbroken. The inclusion of a chapter on Mendelism by so expert and practical a fancier as the Rev. E. Lewis Jones, b.a., will, I trust, put before breeders new and useful theories. These, if studied in conjunction with Wright's masterly chapter on pedigree or line breeding, will do much to keep poultry-keepers on right lines in raising stock, either for fancy or utility pur poses.
