"This book is aimed at all those involved in the care, management, breeding and rearing of poultry. Written throughout in a clear, easy to understand style, it shows you first of all how to identify the healthy bird, so that you can recognize the signs of illness and take action to prevent disease, or at least to treat it as early as possible. It advises you on when to call the vet and, most importantly, of what the vet will need to know. Dealing with each of the bird's systems, Peter Laing explains how it works, what can go wrong with it, how to avoid problems, and how to deal with them when they arise. Each system is explained in a concise and logical manner, with photographs and clear explanatory diagrams. All of the major poultry diseases and illnesses are covered, with detailed advice on prevention and cure. With the emphasis throughout on good management practices, prevention of disease and keeping the flock healthy, this book offers sound advice for all poultry farmers and managers.".
