Bantams as Layers: by J. Barnes (Author)

Basic guide to the management of Bantams! Signed by the Author!
This book attempts to spread the word that smallness can be useful, as well as beautiful; bantams said to originate originally from a region of that name in Java, have been kepts for generations, but mainly for showing.

Many of the natural or ornamental breeds are primarily exhibition birds, but other, such as the Mediterranean breeds, can be quite good layers.  Moreover, they have many advantages over their large sisters - they take up less space, eat much less fod and are able to be kept without difficulty by children, disabled and elderly people, as well as those who simply wish to provide fresh eggs for the home at low cost, with the minimum of trouble.

Thsi book explains the different types, the breeds to select for laying, their management and many other facets of what can be a fascinating, eyt profitable pastime.

This book is signed by the author on the Title page!
