    The Orpington Fowl by Will & Dr. Joseph Batty Burdett

    Spur Publication Books Ltd./Beech Publishing House, Midhurst, West Sussex, 1998. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Near Fine Condition/Near Fine. This is the history of the famous Orpington Fowl, from its introduction by William Cook in 1886 and other dates, for different varieties, up to the present time. It covers all the stages, the triumphs and difficulties. Therefore, in many respects, it represents the history of the Poultry Fancy and poultry farming because William Cook was the inventor of poultry farming in the sense that he produced the birds which were profitable, and made them available all over the world. Moreover, many of the leading poultry farmers bred Orpingtons and showed them at major shows, thus spreading the word on the excellent merits of the birds. The old advertisements reproduced are a story in themselves. The two authors have collectively more than 100 years experience in poultry. In deciding the content of the book the authors have steered a middle road and included all important topics which directly affect Orpingtons. Technical matters on subjects like lighting, control of incubators and man management have been omitted because these are available in general books. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. 168 pages.
