VEGETABLES IN FOWLS' DIET
Feeding Tests Made With Laying Hens
by United States Department
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Scarcity of beef scrap, together with
its high price, has ied poultry special
ists of the United States department
of agriculture to conduct feeding tests
with laying hens in which cheaper and
more plentiful kinds of protein feed
-are tried. In these tests feeds rich
in vegetable protein have been used in
connection with beef scrap to make up
the laying ration.
' One pen of hens, fed a mash con
taining 20 per rent beef scrap, pro
duced the greatest number of eggs,
but a second pen. fed a mash consist
ing of 30 per cent peanut meal and
10 per cont beef scrap, produced an
average of only 10 eggs less during the
test period of 5% winter months.
Mashes made with soy-bean meal, cot
tonseed meal, and velvet-bean meal,
in combination with beef scrap, have
been fed with fairly satisfactory re
PLAN FOR POULTRY SUCCESS
Suggestions Sent Out From Washing
ton for Benefit of Practical
Government poultrymen are appeal
ing to the American people, both in the
country and in the cities, to increase
poultry production as much as possi
ble. Tire following nine suggestions
have been offered as a means to attain
ing this end :
1. Keep better poultry; standard
brod poultry improves the quality and
2. Select healthy, vigorous breeders
to produce strong chicks.
3. Hatch curly to produce fall and
4. 1'reserve eggs when cheap for
5. Produce infertile eggs, except foi
" C. Cull the flocks to eliminate un
7. Keep a small back-yard flock tc
supply the family table.
S. Grow ns much of your poultrj
feed as possible.
0. Eat more poultry and eggs to con
serve the meat supply.
PULLETS FOR WINTER LAYERS
Weight of Fowl ls Sometimes Good
Indication of Future Egg Pro- ;
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Poultry keepers may plan to hater,
all their pullets early, but it always
happens that a good many pullets are
not nearly grown in September, oi
even by the first of November. Obvi
ously these will never make earls
winter layers. They may make profit
able layers, though not likely to paj
as well as the earlier-hatched hena
With the age of the undersized pullets
known, and by the use of the scales
it is a simple matter at this season
to cull out those that it will not pa}
to feed through the fall and earlj
winter, unless waste feeds are sc
abundant that no feed need be bough!
for any of the poultry stock.
A Plymouth Rock pullet that is fiv(
months old in the early part of Sep
tember and weighs less than foul
pounds is not promising material foi
a winter layer; a Wyandotte or Iihod<
Island lied pullet that is five month.'
Early-Hatched Mature Pullet
old at this season and weighs undei
three pounds is not a desirable bir(
to keep; a Leghorn that is foul
months old and weighs less than tw<
pounds should also be classed as i
cull and used for the table. Birds hav
ing these weights with less age ar<
desirable in proportion to their age
Many poultry keepers who do no
mark their chicks when hatched an<
let broods of different ages run to
gether in the growing season canno
tell the age of a pullet with certaintj
in the fall, and take it for grantei
that the small birds are the late
hatched. This error leads to the hold
ing of many pullets which, if thel
true age were known, woult1 be dis
carded for poultry.

The young turkeys have a wanderin
spirit, characteristic of their kind, s
be sure that the coop is tight aroun
the bottom so they cannot get out ai*
wander away from their mother.
