Avian Nutrition: Poultry, Ratite and Tamed Birds

By Nityanand Pathak

Avian Nutrition: Poultry, Ratite and Tamed Birds PDF. The scope of book has relevant and important informations on some of the popular tamed birds reared as pet in cages. Among these Parrots and Mayana are companion species capable of learning and limited conversation with members of the house. Bulbul, partridges and pigeon are used for sports. Owners of these birds expect guidance for care and management from the experts of poultry science because so far there appears to be no school on the management of such avian species.
Incorporation of these avian species in the book is expected to enrich the knowledge of students and teachers of the Avian and Poultry Science.
