This is a classic guide to incubating and brooding ducks, being a collection of carefully-selected articles dealing with such subjects as incubating, hatching, caring for young, and much more. Written with the beginner in mind, it simply explains each step of the processes with the aid of helpful diagrams, making it ideal for modern readers with a practical interest in keeping ducks or other varieties of poultry. Contents include: “Natural and Artificial Duck Culture”, “Incubators”, “Best Place for Incubators”, “Suitable Buildings”, “How to Keep Eggs for Incubation”, “How to Choose and Use Thermometers”, “How to Turn Eggs”, “Domestic Geese and Ducks”, “Ducks Breeding Rearing and Management”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on poultry farming.
