So cordially have our previous little books for poultrymen been received by both people and press, that we venture to send out another entitled, low-cost Poultry Houses. For such a publica tion we believe there is an open field. In this little work we have attempted nothing elaborate. The plans presented for poultry houses and poultry house fixtures and conveniences, have been for the most part drawn and engraved specially for this book, and'the descriptions are those of buildings as they now stand, not imaginary air castles. We have kept in mind the fact that the majority of poultrymen are not millionaires and they have no use for structures to house $100 or $200 worth of birds. The plans and specifications herein contained call for low cost poultry houses, none exceeding $100 we think, in cost; the most under $50 or $75. We have tried to make each description explicit so that, with the accompanying illustration, a poultryman may con struct a building after the plan which pleases him best, or he may gather ideas from different plans from which he may formulate something yet more satisfactory than anything herein described.
