3. Reich Fibel
Raising chickens during the Third Reich
A Fibel in German is the name attached to a very basic handbook or primer which gives the reader a brief but thorough overview of a specific subject. During the Third Reich the government produced handbooks or Fibel on subjects ranging from how to drive a tank to how to stop a tank with a Panzerfaust to raising all sorts of small farm animals.

The 5-3/4 x 8-1/4 inch, 32-page Fibel was published by the Reichsverband deutscher Kleintierzüchter eV or the State Society of German Small Animal Breeders Registered Society. The booklet was published in 1941 or 1942 and in a funny way explains all about the various kinds of domestic chickens, how they are raised, the circumstances under which they live, how to feed them and care for them and how to get the most consistent egg or meat production from them.

It is the basic story of raising chickens from eggs to adulthood and the products that require chickens and eggs for human sustenance, and it is all done is a lengthy humorous poem, beautifully illustrated with lovely period drawings. The back cover lists and shows other similar publications from the Deutsche Landwerbung GmbH in Berlin. Good used condition.
