If you want to incubate, hatch, and brood chicks yourself, rather than buying them from a hatchery, this is the guide you need.
Poultry authority Gail Damerow explains exactly how to hatch healthy baby chickens, ducklings, goslings, turkey poults, and guinea keets, addressing everything from selecting a breed and choosing the best incubator to ensuring proper set-up and sanitary conditions, understanding embryo development, and feeding and caring for newborn chicks in a brooder.
This is an indispensable reference for any poultry raiser, whether you want to hatch three eggs or one hundred.
