STARTING TOE LAYERS ON
THE WINTER EGG CAMPAIGN
Keep the Late Moulting Hens, Whicl
Are the Profit Makers of the
Flock-A High Protein Ration
Needed to Make Quick Growth of
Hlens that devote too much attention
early in the season to the fall styles
in feathers are not the kind that
please the flock owner. It costs too
much to support them and they de
iand too long i vacation period. But
the hen that wears her old clothes un
til autumn hrs almost passed is the
best of the flock, for she has kept oi
laying since the previous fall or win
ter. So now when you see a bird that
looks shabbier than the others, do not
conclude that she is of the no-account
kind and that her smartly dressed sis
ters are the ones to keep.
Late Molters Take Short Vacation
Of course some of the hens that
molted earlier, say in August and
September, are profitable enough to
keep, but the cream of the flock is
made up of liens that do not change
their feathers until October or Novem
ber. Their molting will require only
a few weeks and they will probably be
laying again by the 1st of Januarv.
The poor ones, the early-molting loaf
ers, will not begin until about this
time, even though they have been
resting since the middle of the sum
mer. It takes one about two months
and the other twice that long to get
back into production.
The poultry keeper who has an eye
for business will not neglect this worn
looking late layer, for she is the best
profit maker he has. She needs a
highly nutritious ration if she is to
be in the best condition to start on
another year of high production. When
she quits laying an( starts to molt
shc has as much need for a ration
strong in protein as she has when she
is shelling out the eggs, as feathers
are highly nitrogenous in their make
up. They use the materials supplied
by beef scrap, gluten feed, and oil
meal. The oil meal is very effective in
keeping the feathers in a healthy,
Iens that lay eggs late in the fall
an( in the winter are really produc
ing an out-of-season crop, for it is
normal for the hen to lay for a time
in the spring and early summer and
then rest for the remainder of the
year. Profitable hens are really those
that have the capacity to force their
egg-making machinery, but they must
have the right sort of feed with which
to do it. That means feeding well
balanced rations designed for the par
ticular class, and sometimes for the
particular breed. A balanced ration
is a combination of feeds which fur
nish just the necessary amount of
nutrients to produce the highest and
most economical egg yields. The
amount of feed needed to produce a
dozen eggs varies with the kind of
birds. According to exneriments con
lucted by the United States Depart
ment of Agriculture general-purpose
pullets produced a dozen eggs from
6.7 pounds of feed, and Leghorn puil
lets laid the same number from 4.8
Simple mixtures are usually the
most desirable. As the fall advances
and the days grow shorter the birds
should be encouraged to put away as
much feed as possible during the day
so that their bodies will have plenty
to work on for all of the 24 hours. A
good handful of scratch grain for each
bird at night will fill the e. op. It is
not desirable that the liens be made to
work very hard for this feed. Be sure
that the liens go to roost with a full
In making up rations it is necessary
to adhere to standards within certain
limits, but some feeds may be sub
