BRONZE TURKEY BEST KNOWN
Male Bird of Breed Sometimes
Reaches Enormous Size-Do Not
Bear Confinement Well.
The largest and perhaps *' best
?known of the domesticated arkey is
the Bronze, sometimes called the Mam
moth Bronze. The male bird of this
breed reaches an enormous size some
times. The standard weight for the
tom is 36 pounds and for the hen 20
Generally the heavier weights are
?found among the breeding birds, and
iare not for sale. As a matter of ex
'perience breeders find that the great
test demand for the holiday trade Is for
;the smaller birds suitable for a din
ner for an ordinary family.
; The plumage of the Bronze is very
; attractive. The feathers are bronze or
dull black with bands of white across.
(The bronze tint gives pleasing color
One common objection has been that

The Bronze turkeys are close de
scendants of the American wild tur
key, which ls still found in some parts
of our country. The young of the
domesticated birds soon show a ten
dency to wander in search of food.
They can fly to an astonishing height
when it becomes necessary.
The young turkeys do not bear con
finement well. For anything like sat
isfactory results they should range in
the fields and pastures. They are very
useful in keeping down insects that
destroy crops, and many farmers'
wives have sold enough turkeys dur
ing the season preceding the holidays
to provide comforts and conveniences
for the home.
HATCHING IS "GREAT STRAIN"
Lice Work; 3 Unmolested While Hen
ls Sitting ls Most Responsible
for Poor Condition.
The average poultry man will say that
hatching is a "great strain" on a hen.
and the condition of some of the birds
on finishing their hatches seems to bear
out this statement. But the harm done
by the lice working unmolested while
her motherly instinct keeps the hen
busy is more responsible for her run
down condition than the energy re
quired in the actual work of Incubating
The dusting with lice powder should
be done not only nt the beginning of
the hatch, but about once a week
throughout the sitting period.
