Saw the preview in Canberra. It looks great! I have given hubby the hint! My birthdays coming up shortly, sent him a copy of the link to the info page about the book, told him it would be the perfect present! Subtle I know! LOL.

As we have had no communication with the publisher since July it appears he may have pulled out. We are looking at other means of publication but current world financial situation is not helping.
E-book is available

Hi All,
As a result of the publisher no longer being in a position to publish due to current world credit crisis, Sigi & I have decided to self publish. Book will still be in full colour but will only be in soft cover. We are going to print 100,sell,re-print etc. being the only way we can fund it. It is hoped book will be to hand within 6 weeks and best guess at price is $100-$110 + postage. All books will be signed by both authors.
If you are still interested could you place a firm order as I have been allocated 30 from the first print. Most are spoken for but I still have a few.
To obtain your copy please PM me,
David

Good news the book is being funded by the Dutch poultry magazine Avicultura, better is that the initial print run will be increased and I am able to obtain more copies for Australia/NZ. The original order book was full but I can now take more if anyone is interested.

Books are now to hand and a little cheaper than I expected. I have contacted all who indicated an interest, but if I have missed anybody or anybody else is interested please contact me.

Blackdotte,

Received a copy of your book today in the mail.

Well done to Sigi and yourself. Excellently written, great pictures and a wealth of knowledge.

It will become my bible come the next breeding season.

Many many thanks

J

Hi Folks,
This is for all those who requested I keep them a copy. I have done so but they are going fairly fast, so if you want a copy autographed by both Sigi and myself you need to get organised.
