For Egg Production
Department Of Agriculture Tests l p
hold Claims Of Leghorn Breeders
That This Breed Eats Less And
Produces More Than Any Other
TELEGRAPH NEWS OF THE WEEK
Leghorns produce eggs cheaper Uiiin
hens of the general purpose breed
Plymouth Rocks, Wynndotles, Kluxl
Island Reds, and Orpingtons. Thi
fart, which confirms the belief and
experience of commercial poulu
farmers, was one of the results obtain
ed in a rather extensive feeding tes
recently reported by poult rymcn
the I'nited Stales Department
Agriculture. Retails? they lay a
many or more eggs, eat only about
pounds of feed per head, as compared
with 70 to 85 pounds eaten by the
general purpose breeds and because
their egg yield very materially ex
eeeds that of general-purpose breed
during their second and third laying
years. Leghorns, the specialists say
undoubtedly are more profitable to
keep for the production of eggs only
Feed Cost Per Dozen Eggs
In this test the feed cost of n dozen
eggs for one of the Leghorn pens was
7.34 rents in 191li. wh;le the average
cost of all the pens of the general
purpose breeds was 111. 6 cents. In
1914 the feed cost of a dozen eggs for
the same pen of Leghorns was S
cents as against an average cost of
15.1 cents for the second laying year
of the general-purpose pens. During
their third laying year the cost of
dozen eggs was 8.8 cents compared to
18.6 cents for the general purpose
fowls. The total value of eggs pel
hen over feed cost in the Leghorn pen
pen for three years was $ii.8-l against
$4."0 for the general-purpose hem
The h'ghest egg production obtained
in any of the feeding experiments up
to 1915 was by a pen of Leghorns
which laid 157.6 eggs per hen, at
feed cost of 6.7 cents a dozen.
Average Weight Of Eggs
The Leghorns produce smaller eggs
than the general-purpose breeds. The
average weight of the eggs of a pen
of Leghorns during the first laying
vear was 1.42 pounds per dozen as
against 1.53 to 1.58 pounds for the
other pens. However, Leghorns lay-
'ng eggs weighing 1.50 pounds per
dozen or even more, the specialists
' say, have been selected and bred by
many poultrymen. An examination
in May, 1915, of 500 eggs from three
Leghorns pens showed that 31 per
cent weighed more than 2 ounces
each, or 1.50 pounds to the dozen.
The value per dozen of the eggs
produced by the Leghorns was from 1
to 3 cents less each year than the eggs
of general purpose hens. This differ
ence is due to the fact that the general-purposes
breeds are better winter
lavers than the Leghorns, while the
latter give a higher production in the
spring and summer. Very few Leg
horns become broody which probably
materially affects their egg yield as
compared with the general-purpose
breeds. Retter fortuity In the eggs
especially wilh stock confined to the
yards, Is more often secured with Leg
"s than with the general-purpose
or any of the heavier breeds.
An unusual sentence was given by
a judge recently i,n southern California
to man who had left an unextinguished
camp fire in the Angeles National
Forest. Upon pleading guilty to the
charge sworn to by a Forest Rang
he was given a 50-day jail sentence
which was suspended on condition
that he would slay out of the Angeles
National Forest for a year.
