POULTRY KEEPING. [Newspaper Article] — Evening News — 7 February 1870
POULTRY KEEPING. It is a popular idea that poultry kept especially for profit, will yield a loss. There never was a greater error. Poultry, properly managed ; economically fed ; and judiciously selected, so far from proving a loss to those who enter upon the speculation, must prove of very profit. In Europe— in all countries save England — poultry farming is carried on extensively. It is a special department, necessitating special study, and at tention. Like every other enterprise depending upon the production of Gods creatures for profit, it does aot fail, save through the ignorance or neglect of those who embark in it. ! Whence come the enormous quantities of poultry and eggs_ which are consumed in this city 1 A great pro portion comes from the small farmers adjacent to Sydney, and who keep poultry, without paying special attention to what they find, is, unattended to, a very profitable portion of their productions. But not an un considerablc quantity of eggs and poultry, is broug...
