If you see someone holding an egg to their eyelid, don t think that person is performing an unknown ritual of some kind. He or she might simply have read Poultry, the latest revised edition in the Tropical Agriculturalist series. In this issue the above-mentioned trick is described. Fertile eggs are slightly warmer than unfertile ones. The eyelid, being a very sensitive part of the skin, is a good tool to check this out. Poultry is a concise and comprehensive guide on hatching, raising, keeping and marketing eggs and poultry. Besides that, it carries chapters dealing with diseases and disease prevention and maintaining hygienic standards in poultry production. A must read for anyone involved in poultry production.
