Destruction of Insects by Poultry.
No one who has not made observa-
tion in that direction can form any es
timate of the large number of insects
destroyed by farm poultry in a season.
The guinea is constantly at work, and
carefully searches every square toot
of land. In an orchard a flock ot act
ive hens will do excellent service, as
they will need but little, if any, assist
ance, as they secure more food than
may be supposed. At this season of
the year, where the fowls have a
range, they can secure more than a
sufficiency of food, and they also lay
more lay more eggs than in the win
ter. There is often no cost at all for
the eggs produced in the summer, as
the fowls consume materials that are
of no marketable value to the farmer,
the eggs being all profit. In the win
ter season prices are higher, but the
hens then lay fewer eggs, require
warm quarters, must be fed regular-
ly, and the cost for labor and food is
considerable where large flocks are
kept, especially as a large number of
the hens do not lay their proportion
of eggs in winter. When hens do not
lay in summer the fault may be due
to overfeeding, owing to the abund
ance of insects, grass and seeds on the
range or pasture. It is better to send
such hens to market if they are over
two years old, and depend upon the
early-hatched pullets as winter layers.
All pullets that are to be retained
should be kept in good growing con
dition, not fat, by allowing a variety
of food, meat being much better than
corn or wheat for all kinds of young
Farmers and Poultry.
In proportion to the capital invest
ed it is claimed that there is more
profit to be derived from poultry than
from any other live stock on the farms,
and the exceedingly large prices for
eggs should encourage farmers to
make poultry a specialty. At present
on the majority of farms, the fowls
are given over to some member of
the family to look after, and in many
instances the hens are expected to
pick up enough for their support. The
poultry on farms will pay farmers well
if they will consider the fowls as so
much live stock demanding special
care. There should bo a special place
for the fowls, with comfortable quar
ters, regular feeding being practiced.
Itis not creditable to farmers that
their fowls are induced to lay eggs in
horse troughs, under the barns, or in
locations other than nests in the poul
try house. There should be a place
for all flocks, and the fowl should not
be allowed to utilize plates for large
stock. A large flock of hens will some
times make the stables and barns
filthy, and will roost on wagons, car
riages or implements if allowed the
Well? Suppose life to be a desert?
There are halting places, and shades,
and refreshing waters; let us profit
by them for today. Thackeray.
