HOW TO IDENTIFY CHICKENS
Where Fowls in Neighborhood Are
Much Alike lt ls Excellent Plan
to Paint or Dye Them.
Neighbors living close to each other
grow chickens which are very much
alike. Often each party thinks the oth
er is in possession of some of his birds
and trouble begins. In order to avoid
this, one neighbor will get some black
chickens because his neighbor has
L Hens in adjoining yards, if they
get through the fence, often make
their home in the new quarters.

breeding yards are In great danger of
3. All birds in any community which
are apt to range together should be
one variety properly branded. .
A good grade of dye or paint is the
best method of marking the birds to
be detected at sight, different people
using different colors. If all are grow
ing white birds, one person can use
red on his birds, another blue, another
green, etc., placing the color on the
wings and tail so they can be seen at
a distance. This gives quick identifi

own birds, will help control wholesale

FOR SUCCESS WITH POULTRY
Fowls Must Be Kept Comfortable to
Secure Best Results-Afford
No success can be obtained with
poultry unless tue fowls are kept com
fortable. A fowl drenehed with rain
is not comfortable. A mau caught in a
rainstorm can change his clothing and
thus save catching a cold, but a fowl
must allow her clothing to dry on her. ;
No fowl can stand r constant ex

more we prote:i them the better will
be the results. !
