Publisher Comments:

Baby chicks can anything be more adorable? So cute, so soft, so helpless Give your baby chicks a great start by reading the only book devoted to them, Success With Baby Chicks. Robert Plamondon had to read over a hundred poultry books to discover the sure-fire techniques in Success With Baby Chicks, and he tested them on his farm to find the ones that will work for you. Learn how to choose a good hatchery and a good breed, what kind of heat source to use, how to prepare the brooder area for your baby chicks, what to feed them, and how to avoid common mistakes. All of this is explained so clearly and completely that it has received praise from children, hobbyists, farmers, and poultry scientists alike.Whether you brood five chicks or five thousand at a time, this is the book for you, because its practical methods work with flocks of any size. And it will save you money. Learn how to build an insulated brooder in two hours for $20, keeping your chicks warmer and more comfortable than with overhead heat lamps, and saving two-thirds of the electricity into the bargain Robert Plamondon is a writer/farmer/engineer who has been awarded 17 U.S. patents and raises free-range chickens on his farm in Oregon.

Synopsis:

Lost Secrets of the Poultry Masters! In this engaging, practical book, Robert Plamondon describes how to raise baby chicks, using brooder-house techniques that, though now largely forgotten, were once used on millions of American farms. Anyone can raise baby chicks successfully by following these simple, proven methods. Robert Plamondon keeps a flock of 600 free-range hens on his farm in Blodgett, Oregon. His wife Karen Black raises 2,000 pastured broilers a year.
