CHARLTON DuRANT, T. M. WELLS,
,IF SHE IS PROPERLY flANDLED
Nests Hollowed Out on the Ground,
Covered with Straw and Carefully
Protected are Ideal-Cleanl iness
Is Imperative; Care of Eggs.
Checken hens an(] incubators can
be and often are used successfully for
hatching turkey eggs, but the surest
means, United 6tatevs Department of
Agriculture poultry slecialists say, is
to use the turkey hen and give her
proper management. Turkey -hens
are close sitters aini will cov so
there will be no danger of ch ling,
from 15 to 18 eggs, depending ol the
size of the hen.
Nests for setting turkey and chick
en hens are best made on the ground
by hollowing out a little earth, so that
the center is deep enough to keep the
eggs from rolling out of the nest. A
thin covering of clean straw or hay
can then be used to prevent the eggs
from being directly on the ground, and
a large, roony coop should be placed
over the nest to kee) the hen from be
ing disturbed. When a number of
hens are to be set, a long row of nests
can easily be made on the ground,
separating them with board partitions.
If this is done care must be taken to
see that when the henls come off the
nests each returns to 'the right one
instead of crowding into a nest with
another (-hit and leaving some of the
eggs to become chilled. With only a
few hens it is better to set them some
(istance apart, as they will then re
quire less attention.
When a ilen'r in Earnest.
When a hen becomes broody and
shows that she is earnest by remain
ig on her nest for . two or three
iights, site may safely be trusted
with the eggs, provided she is allow
ed to sit in that nest.. If she is to be
set im another nest, as is usually the
cast, then she should be removed to
the new nest, prelerably after dark,
given a few nest eggs ,and shut in to
prevent her from returning to the old
01ne. If she sit', quietly Onl thle nest
eggs she should be taken off on the
evening of the following (i' , and the
eggs to be incubated placed in the
nest. On being freed, she probably
will return to her old nest; if so, she
should be carried back and set quiet
ly on the eggs. She should be hand
led in this maonner until on being let
off she ire turns to the new ntest rather
than to the old one. It sometimes
takes only two or- three days, and sel
(iom more than a week. to break a hen
from returning to her old nest. Tur
key hens dt not ordinaril y come off for
feed and water more than once every
2 or (Iays, but when confinted thev
should have a chance to ( come oil,
every day. Occasionany a turkey hen
does not come off at all, and in such
case she should be taken off once a
day, as otlierwise she will dic on the
Ont coming offi her nest the first
thing a turkey hen does is to stretch
her wings, step ginigerly for a few
steps, andl then she often takes a rt
