LAKEVIEW POULTRY FARM
The accompanying illustration is of one of the best
equipped and most modern poultry plants on the coast —
that of Mr. J. R. Walthew, secretary of the Puget Sound
Poultry Club, at Seattle. It is known as Lakeview Farm,
and is located on the shore of Green Lake, a suburb of
Seattle. The large illustration shows a birdseye view of
the place, with the Olympic Mountains in the distance.

arrangement, appears in the small illustration. This build
ing is in the shape of an "L" and faces east and south. The
inside measurement, including feed and cook room at

size, Bxls feet. A three foot alleyway extends around the
south and east sides, there being a door in each end of the
building. All partitions between pens are of board to a
height of three feet, the remaining portion extending to
the ceiling, being of wire netting. Soft food is fed in
troughs from the alleyway, the front of pens to a height of
18 inches being composed of iron bars set vertically 2 1-2
inches apart. Above these bars and extending to the ceil
ing is wire netting. Water is placed in stone jars just out
side of the bars in the alleyway. The dropping boards are
about three feet above the floor in the back part of the pens
and have a slight incline. The roosts are about 12 inches
above the dropping boards. The former are cleaned every
morning and a thin covering of dry sand placed thereon.
