Disturbances oultry Ya.d.
It is admitted by all poultry breed
ers that anything which tends to
frighten the chickens will decrease
egg production. in the large poultry
plants visitors are either refused ad
mittance or admission is charged to
make up in part for the disturbance
to the hens. A strange dog running
through the yards, children noi,ily
hunting for eggs and chasing the birds
for feathers--any cause which excites
iThem-will do them harm. It some
times happens that hens will void one
or more egg yolks from extreme
fright. This is sometimes accompanied
by a discharge of blood. and Is known
as abortion. Such an accident may
entirely destroy the value of an other
wise good bird. Luring favorable
weather the farm flock is not apt to
be so disturbed, scattered as they are
over good range, but when winter
