North Carolina State College Poultry DeDartment,--WNU Service. Poultrymen who wish to make a profit durlng the period of low egg production must eliminate all unneces- sary feed costs. But the economy should not be carried so far as to further decrease egg production. Removal of unproductive hens from the flock and liberal use of winter grazing crops afford the best means of reducing feed costs and maintain- Ing a satisfactory rate of egg produc- tion. Non-layers and poor layers add Just as much to the flock cost as do the good layers, but add little or nothing to the Income derived from egg sales. Green feeds, which are less expen- sive than other types of chicken feed, tend to stimulate egg production by providing vital nutrients for the flock. Them are certain crops winch will furnish grazing through most af the winter. Italian rye grass and crimson clover, or a mixture of these, have proven satisfactory. Experiments have shown these feeds to be practical from all standpoints. House for Laying Flock Needs Careful Attention One of the first steps In an im- proved system of poultry management is to provide satisfactory quarters for the laying flock. A recent mrvey in the corn belt area, says the Missouri Farmer, showed that the average poul- try house was built in 1912 and that a very small portion, less than one- fifth, possessed the simple features o necessary in a poultry house in order for it to be satisfactory. The average farm was attempting to house 60 per cent more hens than the quar- ters would accommodate. Less than one-third of the farm poultry houses had adequate ventilation, and bout one-slxth were provided qth feed hop- pers and droppings platforms. In over half the houses the fronts possessed no windows or other open- ings. Under such condilons it is no wonder that poultry fails to produce and return the profit one has a right to expect. Usually the extra produc- tion when poultry is properly housed pays liberal dividends on the extra investment as well as paying for the house itself. Types in Cockerels A great many people when picking out the more desirable cockerels they reserve for breeders make the mistake of taking for first choice those which develop sexually before others of the same age. To those who have not learned by observation that these are apt to be somewhat below average size in their breed, such birds are at this season the most attractive. The cockerels which show the best devel- opment at maturity are at this sea- son larger than those Just mentioned, and not so well feathered and self-as- sertive. Until one has learned to rec- ognize the type as that which grows into the best type of adult bird, he is very apt to pass over it and after he has taken the precocious birds take the largest of those that remain. In a stock of chickens in which the stand- ard weight is the medimn, the largest cockerels rarely make desirable breed- ers. Almost invariably they are coarse "or their kind and slow to mature. Moist Mash Moistened mash has its virtues for both hens and growing chicks. For hens that are beginning to slow up on egg production anti go broody rapidly, a feeding of as much moistened mash as they will clean up once a day, pref- erably around noon, will help keep up egg production and make for lower broodiness, says a correspondent in W'allace's Farmer. Growing chicks apparently desire variety, and like moistened mash as a change. Fed plain, moistened wlth water, or better yet milk, it aids both growth and fleshing. Dressing Turkeys In deciding whether to sell turkeys alive or dressed one can safely esti- mate that there Is a shrinkage of ap- proximately 10 per cent In the loss of blood and feathers and 25 per cent in full drawn turkeys. When grow- ers market dressed turkeys it Is nec- essary to withhold feed for 18 to 24 hours before they are killed, It is a good practice to confine them to a laying house at noon the day before any of them are killed. A liberal sup- ply of water should be provided. BLOUSE SERVING DOUBLE PURPOSE Patterns 9132 and 9133 9133 One of the most pleasant things about tile returning vogue of t suit i,s that blouses are again hl style.
