CARE FOR LITTLE CHICKENS
Do Not Worry Mother Hen by Inter
ference-Feed Bread Crumbs
When 48 Hours Old.
When the e;:c:s begin to pip, do not
worry the hen by interference, but
let her severely alone till the chicks
ure all out and dry. Then remove
to a dry roomy coop which should be
rat and skunk proof. If you can have
a small ruuway attached to the south
side, enclosed by wire netting, so
much the better. The hen should be
kept confined for a few days, allowing
the chicks to run in and out at will.
Lo not be in a hurry to feed the
little fellows, but scatter some coarse
sand or chick size grit in the chaff
or litter that you put on the floor of
their coop. They will pick at this
and begin to learn to scratch for them
selves. When 4S hours old. give some
dry bread crumbs or hard-boiled egg.
Feed, often, but sparingly the first few
days. Vary the food given, usiny
rolled oats, cornbread, curd and stale
light bread ground fine, or soaked in
milk and squeezed dry.
Keep grit, charcoal and clean drink
ing water always before them. Feed
the hen first and the chick feed will
last longer. After the chicks are two
weeks cid turn the old hen loose with
"them to go where she will, always see
ing that they are securely cooped for
the night. At this age three feedings
a day are sufficient Tracked corn,
kallir and wheat is a very good diet,
in addition to what they pick up.

Sutern of feeding should be intro

by supplying the hoppers with dry

chicks will not eat oats, but there is
nothing better for growing bone and
muscle. Hopper feeding greatly les
sons the amount of labor in caring
for chicks and gives the smaller and
weaker chicks an equal chance at the
feed with the others.

BEST TURKEYS FOR BREEDING
Error for Farmer to Feed Stock Fowrs
With Those Intended for the
It is a groat mistake for the farmer
to feed his stock turkeys with those
intended for the holiday markets, yet
so many of thetr> do. It is the worst
thing in the wo.-ld to do. Before
the turkeys are made ready for mar
ket make choice of the turkeys you
expect to keep over for breeding pur
poses and choose your very best. Place
these somewhere away from the rest,
and while you keep them iu fine con
dition by feeding corn, wheat and oats,
the latter, if boiled, forming a healthy
ration for turkeys, do not seek to
lay on the fat you want ou the mar
ket turkeys. This is why stock tur
keys often die in the winter, simply
because they were fattened until the
liver broke doun and became diseased
because of its own fat.
BEST CHICKENS FOR CAPONS
Fowls Hatched in May and June Are
Favored-Cockerels Are Valu
able as Broilers.
Chickens hatched in May and Juno
are better for capens, as the earlier
cockerels are worth too much as broil
ers from two to four pounds to capon

ket opens up, which is from about
the middle ol* January until about the
ndddle of March. At the age of eight
or nine months a capon from larger va
rieties of chickens will weigh from
seven to twelve pounds. For the last
few years live capons have sold from
IS to 25 cents per pound and the
rooster from ? to 0 cents per pound.
Other uses may be made of the ca
pou, for, with a little encouragement,
he will mother a brood of little chicks,
cluck and scratch for them as their
real mother would. A rather queer
sight to see. He has also been made
to sit with good results by some poul
