Excerpt from Practical Poultry Keeping: As I Understand It The successful farmer or fancier of to-day is the one who accepts the fact that stock perfectly acceptable ten years ago, is not accept able to-day. The demand for something better comes every year. Especially is this the case in regard to poultry. For this reason many are now keeping good fowls carefully bred, and selling at high prices. The call for better stock, and for information as to what is good stock, and the best mode of handling, comes from all sections.
