Bantams: A Complete Pet Owner's Manual
In her book, Bantams: A Complete Pet Owner's Manual, Helga Fritzsche (translated by Dr. Helgard Niewisch) provides the reader with a great place to start planning for raising a flock of bantam chickens. This 72-page book includes 30 well-shot and beautiful color photos of bantam breeds. Fritzsche covers over 50 breeds of bantam chickens, many very rare, and with a focus on breeds from Great Britain.
Bantams: A Complete Pet Owner's Manual also fully covers care, housing, feeding and nutrition, disease prevention and care, and breeding and incubating in a concise and easy-to-understand and implement manner.
Some of the breeds that this book covers are not available yet in the U.S. and some of the standards discussed are based on European or British ideals.
