Cleanliness In tho henhouso and
the poultry yard Is a very 'simple
thing, for the reason that it depends
upon simple things. A few years ago
I experimented with fancy roosts, pat
ent drop boards, intricate nest shelves,
and various other contrivances calcu
lated to make the hen lay, and to
make chicken raising easy. These
have all been discarded. They entailed
too much care, and involved far more
labor than the simple, common sense
methods. I have found nothing bet
ter for roosts than those of the saw
horse pattern. This gives a roost

CURE FOR DROOPY POULTRY

themselves and looking droopy and
shabby, get a largo deep can or buck

water; on this pour melted grease un

water; catch your fowls, take them
one by one, by their wings, and with
the head held straight up, dip them
down, pretty hard, two or three times
into the water; let tho head go com
pletely under onco; do this quickly
to avoid strangling the fowl; then
turn it loose.
After waiting a few hours for tho
water to drip from tho feathers, drive
them Into the shade, so the sun will
not blister them. For a short time

through tho skin and grow in masses
instead of one or two in a place; tho
time of moulting is shortened; tho
fatty greaso kills all vermin on tho

ers are death traps to any vermin that
may get on them.
Keep tho bucket filled with water
and pour more grease oa the water
from time to time.
The fowls should bo dipped early In
the morning and made to roost under
shelter for soveral nights.
By dipping fowls In tho early fall
they become healthy and free from
pesta, hence stand the winter better,
and in the spring have little or no
vermin to annoy them and get on and
kill their llttlo ones.
