HATCHING & BROODING YOUR OWN CHICKS
Author: Gail Damerow
This is the guide you need if you want to incubate, hatch, and brood chicks yourself rather than buying them from a hatchery. Filled with beautiful illustrations, poultry authority Gail Damerow explains how to hatch healthy baby chickens, ducklings, goslings, turkey poults, and guinea keets.
She addresses everything from selecting a breed and choosing the best incubator to ensure proper set-up and sanitary conditions, understanding embryo development, and feeding and caring for newborn chicks in a brooder.
