The Biggle Poultry Book

A Concise and Practical Treatise on the Management of Farm Poultry

Author: Jacob Biggle

Publisher: Skyhorse Publishing, Inc.

ISBN: 162873437X

Category: Nature

Page: 176

View: 608

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.

Reproduction in Poultry

Author: Robert J. Etches

Publisher: C A B International

ISBN: 9780851987385

Category: Technology & Engineering

Page: 318

View: 6058

This book describes the biological basis of reproduction in poultry and places this information in the context of poultry production. The author has collated and integrated recent information from a variety of sources in order to highlight the principles of the reproductive biology of poultry. This is achieved through a well-illustrated and tabulated text which emphasizes integration rather than comprehensive literature citations. The book begins by considering the egg, proceeds to a brief description of embryonic and chick development as they relate to poultry production, and describes the physiological processes that lead to formation of the fertile egg. It concludes with a discussion of the relationship between measurements of reproductive success that are commonly used in the poultry industry and their ability to reflect the physiological processes that contribute to successful reproduction. The book is aimed at advanced undergraduates or graduate students studying animal reproduction or agriculture, as well as scientists working in the poultry industry.

The safety of poultry, meat, and eggs continues to be a major concern for consumers. As a result, there has been a wealth of research on identifying and controlling hazards at all stages on the supply chain. Food Safety Control in the Poultry Industry summarizes this research and its implications for all those involved in supplying and marketing poultry products. The book begins by analyzing the main hazards affecting poultry, meat, and eggs, both biological and chemical. It then discusses methods for controlling these hazards at different stages, from the farm through slaughter and carcass processing operations to consumer handling of poultry products. Further chapters review established and emerging techniques for decontaminating eggs or processed carcasses, from physical methods to the use of bacteriophage and bacteriocins. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Food Safety Control in the Poultry Industry will be a standard reference for both academics and food companies.

Across the ages, it has been an all-purpose medicine, sex symbol, gambling aid, inspiration for bravery, and of course, the star of the world's most famous joke. Only recently has it become humanity's most important single source of protein.

The poultry industry continues to expand in the warm regions of the world at a much faster rate than in temperate zones. Not only can it be quickly and easily developed in these hot climates but poultry meat and eggs can serve as important sources of animal protein in those areas of the world that have protein insufficiency. Fully revised and updated, this new edition describes how the detrimental effects of heat stress can be reduced through the manipulation of housing, breeding, nutrition and management, and includes new contributions on controlled-environment housing, waterfowl, and breeding fast-growing broilers.
