Belgian Bantams / Veronica Mayhew.
This book covers all aspects of the breeds, including their history and management. The author has bred Belgians for over 40 years and she was the Secretary of the Breed Club for many years. She now has just a few of the feathered-legged Barbu d'Uccles.
Belgian bearded bantams first appeared in England in 1911. The different breeds, in an array of beautiful colours - millefleurs, porcelaine, quail and others - made an immediate impact. These friendly bantams never fail to give pleasure, whether they are kept by poultry fanciers for show, or just to provide interest and life in a garden.
Pages: 90; illustrated (some colour).
