The iLr. Nint to keep in view is to
Ilen y c fowls in the shortest
tr.ne Possible. To do this they should
be in a coop or pen, where they can
not take much exercise, for by exer.
cise they work off flesh and keep
down fat. A good way is to confine
them to small, light coops made of
lath or wire netting. These may sit
out in the back yard or barnyard, on
well-drained ground. In case of rain
or damp weather cover them with
oilcloth. Keep the pen dark during
the daytime, except when the fowls
are eating, by throwing a thick cov
ering over the coops, such as old
carpets, blankets or quilts. This will
prevent the fowls from stirring about
between neals. In the morning give
them boiled potatoes, mashed while
hot and thickened with corn meal,
with a little salt and pepper for sea,
They should be ted three times a
day, and their bill of fare varied as
much as possible, but with a large
proportion of starchy heat and fat
producing articles. Very little green
stuff should be given them, though
pumpkin or .squash may take the
place of boiled potatoes occasionally.
Fresh bedding should be supplied
frequently, and the coop and spot it
occuiles shouid be kept clean. The
coop should rest on cinders, or on
gravelly or sandy soil, with a bedding
of hay or straw. The coop being
light, it will be easy to move it to
a new place occasionally by a man
getting at each end and lifting it an
inch or so off the ground, gently push

coop as it is moved, having prep~ared

about a million books in these libra
