FOR FUMIGATION OF FOWLS
New York Man Designs Coop Especial
ly Adapted for Removing All
Injurious Vermin on Bird.
For the fumigating of fowls, to re
move the vermin which are so injuri
ous, a Xew York man has designed an
effective apparatus. In a coop, speci
ally made are guide rails and between
these rails the chicken is placed, with
ite Tvings spread out over bars that
run alongside. Near the top of the
coop Is a hole for the fowl's head, so
that she need not breathe the poison
ous atmosphere. A key Is turned and
the fumes rush Into the coop and
penetrate the bird's feathers, killing
off all lice and other Insects. Little
chicks can also be fumigated In this
device by being placed In a basket
that hangs abovo the place designed
for the old fowl.
