At this season of the year
eggs aro an artic.c of fo-ud (iroucli need

without them for culinary purposes.
Some think that the scarcity of eggs at

being well cared for. If the hens
arc obliired to roost on trees or fences
or woodniles. or wherever they can
get; if they have to wade through the
mud and slush and snow; if they have
to steal most of their living from tho
