Preston Sullivan, of ATTRA, put together an organic farming bibliography
while at NCSU. I have a copy of this online at:
You can download 7 small files or the whole thing as a 1 meg. file.
The database is a little hard to interpret but it contains many good
references with a quantity from the early 1900's.
Its worth browsing and may have useful poultry references.
Here's a sample:
