Practical Poultry Keeping: by Dr. Joseph Batty (Author)
Practical Poultry Keeping: by Dr. Joseph Batty (Author) (9781852590710)

Poultry Keeping has developed tremendously over the last 50 years or more only to find that the advanced methods being used were reaching the point where the health of the birds was deteriorating and their produce was suspect; salmonella and other dangers became apparent.  There has now been an examination of methods used and the philosophy behind them.  As a result alternative systems have been developed and more rational approaches are now possible. 

This is a practical book which should appeal to agricultural students, poultry farms and others who are concerned with efficiency; but, who also wish to have an appreciation of the welfare aspects related to this important industry

The methods used for successful rearing are explained and there are many illustrations of equipment which may be used.  There are 16 plates in full color showing the stages of development and some of the species/breeds which may be hatched.  It can be recommenced to poultry fanciers or to students who must have a grounding in the practical applications of incubation methods and embryology.

In this edition a special color plate section has been specially prepared form photographs by different people. Where still in copyright acknowledgement has been given.

Aratingas: by Herman Kremer (Author)
Aratingas: by Herman Kremer (Author) (9789073217041)

Aratingas belong to the group of South American parrots.  Together with the Macaws and the Amazons they are the best known parrot likes from this region.  They are familiar to every birdkeeper, albeit in varying degrees, yet until know no easy reference book about this genus had appeared on the market.  

The author has successfully attempted to satisfy this need; he has chosen for the same layout as in his previous book "Australian Parakeets and their Mutations", a publication which has been received with extreme enthusiasm by aviculturists.  

"Aratingas" therefore, also contains high quality photographs of all the species and most of the sub-species, which once again have virtually all been taken by Cees Scholtz. 

The photographs accompany practical and clear description in which all the important characteristics of each species are given:  sub-species, origin of name, parents and you, sizes and weights, habitat and habits, diet, nesting sites, breeding process, general remarks and mutations.

      This is the most comprehensive coverage of the parrot family n captivity to have appeared in any language.  In recent years there has been a necessary shift of emphasis amount aviculturist, who, since importations have been severely restricted, now concentrate their efforts on breeding from their birds.

      AS pets, parrots have been popular for centuries for their intelligence, affectionate nature, engaging personalities and their ability to mimic.  The parrot owner who is interested primarily in this aspect will find information on individual species' characteristics throughout the book. 

      Ninety full colour photographs illustrate widely varying species of parrot and include some extremely rare specimens. 

      This is a HEAVY BOOK - with 600+ pages!  With 28 chapters - Species, Management, aviaries, feeding, the pair bond, breeding, hand-rearing, mutations, parrots as pets, sick birds, causes and care..... just to name a few!!!
