much for the success of the. industry

are tonics for delicate hens; Incuba

egg crate fillers—-but these are more
for the. poultrymen than the hen; and
of course many kinds of brooder stoves.

BIHN HATCHERY THE
LARGEST IN THE WORLD
Chicken raising has reached what
foreigners call "American proportions''
at the Bihn Hatchery at Petaluma.
where every month 155,000 chicks
break their way out of their shells. W.
H. Bihn, the proprietor, has built the
business from an insignificant start
until now it Is the largest hatchery in
Chicks hatched at Plhn's have a
much better time of it, if anything,
than If their hen parent continued to
look after them. Nothing has b*»en
spared to add to their comfort, and it Is
easily true that the feathered young
sters receive more care than the aver
White Leghorn chicks are a specialty
at this mammoth place, and there is
hardly a poultry raiser of prominence
in the Western States who hasn't at
one time or another received a ship
ment of White Leghorns from Bihn'-".
Incubators embodying every improve
ment calculated to add to the health
and vitality of the chicks are built on
th«* grounds, and they are so arranged
that eggs can easily be, handled on h
large scale. Kach machine holds from
2,000 to 7,000 eggs.
The most successful poultrymen of
Petaluma provide the hatching eggs.
and as the big interest of these men's
lives is Improving their stock the
birds secured from the Bihn Hatchery
are certain to be the finest to be had
