This special re-print edition of Homer Jackson's book "Artificial Incubation and Brooding" is a complete guide to artificially incubating poultry eggs in an incubator, as well as raising chicks. Written in 1910, chapters include Selection of Breeding Stock, the Management of Breeding Stock, The Hen's Egg and How it Is Formed, The Chick Embryo and Its Development, The Operation of Incubators, Mistakes In Incubation, Day Old Chicks, Practical Incubator Houses, The Selection of Brooding Equipment, Care of Chicks in the Brooder, Feeding Chicks In the Brooder, Brooder Houses and How To Build Them and Ailments and Diseases of Chicks. Though written a century ago, the sound advice contained in this small book will put one a step ahead when it comes to hatching and raising your own chicks, ducklings or poults. Lavishly illustrated with over historic photos, line drawings and diagrams. Note: This edition is a perfect facsimile of the original edition and is not set in a modern typeface. As a result, some type characters and images might suffer from slight imperfections or minor shadows in the page background.
