Description


Where other chicken breeders failed, Professor James Dryden in Oregon succeeded when "Lady MacDuff" laid 303 eggs in 365 days in 1912-1913. How did he do it? Through the methods described in this book, which can be divided into two parts: his successful breeding techniques and his simple yet effective management techniques.

Poultry Breeding and Management, first published a century ago, was an immediate hit with farmers and breeders alike, and remained in print for nearly thirty years. It was the best, most popular, and most influential poultry book of its time, and remains well worth reading today.

James Dryden (1863-1935) was Professor of Poultry Science at Oregon Agricultural College (now Oregon State University) and was the first to demonstrate that egg production can be in-creased through selective breeding. He is the only poultryman ever inducted into National Agricultural Hall of Fame.

Poultry Breeding and Genetics is volume 6 of the Norton Creek Classics series. See http: //www.nortoncreekpress.com for these classic poultry books.
