Keeping Poultry and Rabbits on Scraps


by Claude Goodchild & Alan Thompson


A delightful edition of an English wartime favorite.
First issued in 1941, when the food shortages of World War II made it essential for every scrap of kitchen waste to be used to feed the nation, this book enabled the meager wartime rations to be supplemented in thousands of homes by a regular supply of eggs and meat. Reissued specially for the growing number of people interested in organic and locally grown food sources, this quirky volume contains everything that the small-scale raiser of rabbits or poultry needs to know. Egg-production, buying, housing, feeding, breeding, and diseases are all fully dealt with by experts, while simple and practical instructions are charmingly enhanced by the original illustrations.

About the Authors
Claude Goodchild spent the first thirty-five years of his life on an Essex farm and bred rabbits from the age of fifteen. He went on to run the largest rabbit farm of its time in England.

Alan Thompson kept poultry from the moment he left school. He was editor of the Poultry Farmer for fifteen years and was a frequent contributor to the BBC's poultry talks.
