Their devotion and exertions for this monograph in their favourite breed of chicken led to this most suitable addition to American chook literature. One needn't be a Dominique fancier to learn and research from this e-book, the type of publication that every henwoman and henman may still get pleasure from. possibly a few reader will be encouraged to do an analogous for the Plymouth Rock, Wyandotte or Rhode Island Red.
After many hours of seek and examine by means of the electorate and David Hyman; Mark Fields placed all of it jointly and composed this significant breed monograph. the coloured photographs of Carol Voter at the airborne dirt and dust wrapper simply places the frosting at the cake.
Dominiques have been first pointed out as a breed of fowl in approximately 1820.

A finely distinct desk of contents is incorporated, the one issues now not integrated are cooping and cooking.
Most interesting to me are the numerous written reviews via and concerning the breeders of Dominiques, from the 1840s to the Seventies. yet my favourite is the only named A Dominique Pastoral through Cornelius Weygandt. Born in 1871, died approximately 1950 in Philadelphia the place he lived all his existence. instructor and professor of English on the collage Pennsylvania until eventually his retirement in 1945. these items he enjoyed; his relatives, the English language, song, Pennsylvania and his Dominiques and crimson Dorkings. no longer inevitably in that order! he's only one of many fanciers quoted during this ebook.
