Excerpt from The Call of the Hen: Or the Science of the Selecting and Breeding Poultry for Egg-Production

It was also tested'in New Zealand' by D. D. Hyde, Chief poultry expert for the New Zealand Government, and Prof. Brown, of the New Zealand Poultry Experiment Station. I have repeatedly been requested by my friends in different parts of the world to publish the full matter in book form, but poor health and lack of sufficient funds have prevented me from doing so until now. As this work will be copyrighted, I do not anticipate the literary pirates will raid_it as they have my former work. In justice to the poultry fraternity, I want to say that while I have been and am now a member of the American Poultry Association, and have raised poultry fifty-six years, and now raise them by the thousand, I have never in the past classed myself as a poultryman in the strict sense of the word. Neither do I claim that I am the only one who has discovered the facts set forth in this book. I Only know that I have never seen them in print before. I know what the results of fol lowing this method have been with me, and I feel safe in assuming that the things I have discovered have not been known. Hundreds have known me as an inventor and woolen manufacturer where one would know me as a poultry crank; and the only apology I have for offering this book to the pub lic in a field already crowded with poultry literature is the earnest solicitation of my friends.
