WHITE LEGHORN IS POPULAR
Most Widely Kept of Egg Breeds
Markets Prefer White Eggs and
Pay Premium for Them.
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Egg production doubtless Is the
leading branch of poultry keeping,
and, in addition, is a very important
agricultural activity. According to the
last census the eggs produced in the
United States in 1909 numbered more
than 1,591,000,000 dozens, with a
value of more than $306,000,000. Eggs,
.of course, are produced wherever
chickens are kept, and by far the
greater part of the egg crop comes
from the general farm, yet large so
called egg farms have been developed
with the main purpose of producing
eggs for market. The largest of these
egg farms .and the greater number of
them are located near markets which
pay a premium for white eggs;*and
for this reason, together with the fact
that eggs' are primurily desired, the
breeds, kept are those known as the
Splendid Flock of White Leghorns.
egg breeds, such as the Leghorn,
Campine, Minorca and Ancona. The
Single Comb White Leghorn is un
doubtedly the most popular and the
most widely kept variety of the egg
breeds. These breeds comprise
the Mediterranean and Continental
classes, ns given In the American
Standard of Pr fection. The egg
breeds frequently are found on gen
eral farms also, particularly in those
sections near markets preferring a
white egg, and where considerable
flocks of poultry are kept.
TURKEYS ON GEtiERAL FARMS
These Birds, as a Rule, Are Raised In
* Small Flocks Where Range
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Many turkeys are raised in Texas,
as well as a considerable number in
Mississippi and Alabama and in west
ern Florida. As a general proposition
these birds are raised in small flocks
on general farms, where plenty of
range ls available. Under such condi
tions they usually yield a profitable
income. Not many ducks are raised
in the South, but considerable interest
is displayed in geese production, while
guineas also are raised on many farms.
Guinea eggs are used on the home
table, as well as being marketed, but
as a rule the guineas are allowed to
run wild and are not produced on any
scale for market purposes.
SUMMER FEEDS FOR CHICKS
Fowls in Confinement Must Be Sup

Feed and Meat or Milk.
Chicks and fowls In confinement dur

green food and meat or milk, or both.
If they are on free range they can ob
tain much of their meat food in the"
form of bugs and worms and can add
to their variety of grain the various
vegetable growths that they obtain by
foraging. This ls equally true of the
