WHITE LEGHORNS FOR EGGS
Good Strain of Breed With Good
Care and Fed Ration Given Here
with Will Prove Profitable.
(By J. H. ELSTON. Caldwell, Idaho.)
The man or woman who has de
cided to go into the poultry business
will make no mistake in selecting the
Single Comb White Leghorn, es
pecially if he wishes to follow the
branch devoted to egg farming, with
the sale of breeding stock and eggs
There is a decided difference in
.White Leghorns. Those that are
line-bred for exhibition purposes only,
are seldom the large, hardy, persist
ent layers as those selected and bred
for egg production, but standard
qualifications need not and should not
be neglected even if our aim is a
greater production of eggs.
In securing eggs when prices are
high, the housing and feeding plays
an important part. We should have
good warm houses with plenty of
fresh air, with plenty of room for
exercise, as a busy hen is the one that
fills the egg basket. They are inex
pensive, three sides and roof covered

In winter I feed grain morning and
night scattered in a heavy straw lit
ter on the floor. The exercise of
scratching for the grain in early
morning warms the birds and they
are hungry and in good shape for a
dinner of the warm mash. The mash
has for a base alfalfa, chopped fine
and steamed; with this 1B mired
wheat bran, ground oats, wheat and
cjrn to which is added meat meal,
whenever possible milk is also added.
About twice a week boiled potatoes
?re used In place of the alfalfa.
If one has a good strain of White
Leghorns with proper care and fed
the above ration they should have a
good supply of winter eggs.
CULLING MAKES FINE FOWLS
Runts and Deformed Birds Should Be
Disposed of Immediately to Make
Room for Good Ones.
The first great secret in the pro
duction of fine poultry is severe cul
ling. As soon as you can distinguish
between the good and tho bad, com
mence the culling process. The runts
and the deformed, the off-colored and
the disqualified, should be at once dis
posed of, so that the room and feed
may not be appropriated by them to
the detriment of the good ones.
Select fowls of good size, proper
color and correct formation. If the
backs, keels, legs or toes of any are
crooked or deformed, thrown them out
for the table on the market. If there
are any scrubs, small or feeble ones,
it is best to end their existence.
When you cull, cull closely, and re
tain only such specimens as are rea
sonably sure to grow right. It is only
by such systems of severe culling
that one can ever hope to breed rea
sonably uniform specimens of fancy
Spread of Contagion.
Drinking water in poultry houses
is one cause of the rapid spread of
contagious diseases, such as roup. An
affected hen when she places her beak
in the water 'o get a drink, contami
nates all the water. Then, when
healthy heu? drink from this water
supply they become exposed to what
ever disease the sick hen has. Thus,
when one fowl contracts a contagi
ous disease it generally is but a com?
paratively short time until there is a
general outbreak of the affection, un
less precautions are taken.
Prevention Is Cheapest.
Eradicating a contagious disease
from a poultry flock is a tedious and
costly process. The best way ls to
prevent the outbreak in the flrst
place by keeping the buildings clean
and sanitary. When a fowl gets sick,
if it ls cot killed it should be isolated
and the reinaindi r of the flock closely
watched for sigila of further troubla?
