.SCIENCE IN RAISING POULTRY
Important Problem ls to Ascertain
How Many Eggs Each Hen Lays
Hens Make Best Mothers.
The time has come when more at
tention must be given to high produc
tion in the farm flock. It is not enough
that the poultry fanciers breed up
their layers and attempt to increase
the strain. Farmers should breed up
their own flocks.
We should know what the hens pro
duce and let their stay on the farm
depend upon what they pay. This is
the only business way to look at poul
Trap nesting ls the fancier's way. It
is a good way, but other ways may be
devised to keep records of the hens.
The important problem is to find out
how many eggs each hen lays and
when she lays them.
Summer layers are not near as Im
portant as early spring and winter
layers, for winter eggs always bring
better prices, so do early spring eggs.
It follows from this that a hen that
lays in winter, though she produces
fewer eggs, may be more profitable
than a summer layer.
But authorities tell us not to keep
hens till they are very old. They say
the second season is generally the best
for a laying hen. But there is need of
more records on this subject Anyway,
hens make better mothers when old
than when pullets.
RUNNER DUCKS ARE FAVORED
Especially Adapted to Poultryman !
Who Wishes to Produce Eggs and
Raise Some Meat.
The man who desires a dual pur
pose fowl will find the Runner duck
suitable. This duck is especially adapt
ed to the pouitryman who wishes to j
produce eggs and to raise some meat j
at the same time.
They are perhaps not so good for
meat as some of the other breeds, but:
they make good roasters, friers and
broilers when they have been properly:
They are better layers than the aver
age hen. From 200 to 250 eggs is not
an uncommon yearly average for them
under good cure.
PROFITABLE TO RAISE GAME
Money Can Be Made With Pheasants,
Buffalo and Deer-Feed Cost ls
Not Very Large.
It costs no more to raise pheasants
than chickens, and pheasants sell at
from $5 to $50 a pahr, according to
the variety; the Chinese rlng-nec?
sells at about $7.50 a pair.
It costs no more to raise a buffalo
than a cow, while the former sells at I
about the price of ten cows ; the cost :
.of raising a deer is about the same?
las sheep, while the deer finds a ready
?market at from ?15 to $50.
GULLS SHOULD BE FATTENED
(When Undesirable Fowls Reach Proper
j Size They Should Be Placed In
Pen and Fed Corn.
As soon as the culls have reached a
proper size they should be fattened.
Place them In a pen to themselves and
feed them food that contains a large
per cent of carbohydrates, such as
corn, or its milling products. During
the process of fattening do not give
them any green food at all.

PRIDE IN COLTS AND HORSES
Farmer Can Well Afrord to Feed and
Care for Young Animals to At
(By W. 1>. BLIZZARD, Department of
Animal Husbandry, Oklahoma A.. and
M. College, Stillwater.)
Every farmer should have a pride in
the colts and horses he raises. If the
packer and brewer cnn afford to pay
fancy prices for flashy geldings largely
for advertising purposes, the fanner
can well afford to feed and care for his
young colts in such a way that they
will be attractive to these buyers.
In fact, every farmer should be am
bitious, not only to raise the best
crops, but also to produce the best
stock of all kinds. If he has the best
teams in the neighborhood, they will

farmer's son would certainly become j

likely to leave the farm.
FEED CATTLE FOR SHIPMENT
Pennsylvania Experiment Station !
Recommends Water Be Withheld
In preparing cattle for shipment con
siderable attention should be given to
feeding so as to lower the shrinkage
as much as possible. The Pennsyl

periment station recommends that
water be withheld from animals be
fore shipping and that they be fed tim
othy hay and whole oats to prevent
looseness during shipping. Under such
treatment cattle will arrive at the
market in a more attractive appear
