Bantams and Small Poultry: by Dr. Joseph Batty (Author)

This guide to the Bantams and Small Poultry is written in concise fashion, and each bird is shown , where practicable, in a photograph or drawing. The selected color plates show the beauty an diversity of these fascinating birds. A thoroughly useful guide for anyone interested in collecting, exhibiting or breeding bantams. 

Bantams have been known for hundreds of years, but, have lived in the shadow of large poultry.  Gradually, though, they have grown in numbers had have now a larger following then their larger brothers and sisters.  the reasons are not difficult to understand; being smaller, they eat less food, are easier to transport to shows, make ideal pets for children and can become quite tame.

This modern book presents popular breeds, rare breeds, some that are extinct, and some that are in some countries, but not in the UK. The breeds are arranged in alphabetical order, are described, and are illustrated, in black and white and in color.
