Down in a little section of eastern
MaMachusetts, just away from Boston
and near to staid old Hingham. there
w and has been for several yean a
method iv operation which reverses all
the oM time ideas of the chicken busi
ness and which solves the question of
big, soft naeated chickens and big, fat
profita nt one and the same time. To
accomplish these results uearlv all the
accepted rules of procedure'are set
topsy turvy. and the many change* of
the old order of things may prove most
distressing to those who have absolute
faith in the old methods. The hatch
ing is all done iv the late fall and win
ter The incubators are generally first
ailed in October, and from that time
until enough are hatched to till the
room for them there is a continuous
<-utHow of chickens. The first eg^s
used are tln.se from Light Brahmas,
which are the acknowledged best breed
for this purpose. This is so from their
large frame and size and the fact that
the bones and flesh keep tender and
soft longer than other breeds and they
are quick and profitable growers.
To get the best results the best birds
from the strictly fancier point of
view are not used. Too constant and
long breeding for showroom points
often spoils the color of the legs and
skin and may weaken the vigor and
vitality of the stock. What the prac
tical marketnian wants first is form or
shape and next color of skin and legs,
and it is a question whether the color
of the skin is not equally important as
shape. Next after the Light Brahmas
is used a cross between Light Brahmas
and Barred Plymouth Rocks, and this
season there is a decided trend of opin
ion in favor of this cross as offsetting
the too close breeding which has been
resorted to in fixing the feathering of
the standard Light Brahmas. The
eggs have proved more fertile, and the
chickens have been stronger and more
Among the most successful producers
of this region are the Parrar brothers,
who hatch and market from 3,000 to
4.000 chickens per year. They buy their
eggs and consider an average of one
third us many chickens as there are
eggs put into the machine a satisfac
tory hatch. The chickens are accom
modated in one piped brooder building
of 130 feet and one building 200 by 10
feet equipped with lamp brooders. They
have good success with both buildings
and systems. Tbey expect about two
fluids of tke number hatched to live
to market age. They use the regular
progression of Light Brahmas, Light
Brahma and Plymouth Rock cross and
later Plymouth Hocks. As soon as the
pullets arrive at the best age and con
ditioD they are marketed. As they
mature they are killed. When the
cockerels are about ;5 months old,
they are caponized. This practice i>
universal in this district. The cockerels
are not marketed as capons, but simply
as soft chickens. The gain through
this practice comes from the greater
quiet of the birds and the doing away
with the natural pugnacity which ren
ders a pen of cockerels in their natural
state a vejry bedlam of bickering and
In houses (j by 8 feet the Farrars
keep through the winter as many as
50 birds in each. These houses are
about H feet high at the front, have
one window, are shingled and have
gravel floors with no perches. Tin 1
wonder Is how 50 birds, weighing from
seven to nine pounds, can be wintered
in a C> by 8 house without an epidemic
of sickness and death. Mr. Farrar
says they are not troubled with sick
ness, and the facts that they have the
best of market stock and continue sea
son after season in the same way are
ample proof that he tells the truth.
A new house 100 by 10 feet has just
been finished and will be stocked with
laying pullots. One of the Farrar
brothers, who left a steady position
where he received a good salary, says
that in eight months' time spent with
his chickens he can make more money
than he was paid iv a year and be
more independent. They estimate that
they clear at least 50 to GO cents per
head on the average bird in average
seasons. This they believe to be the
lowest tigure consistent with fair con
ditions.— George H. Pollard in Kelia
ble Poultry Journal.
A Chicken Without Wings.
Chickens with exploring dispositions
sometimes come to grief, and such was
the fate that befell a young occupant
of a South Carolina barnyard. The
chick one day found itself on the
threshold of the stable. It began its
usual round of exploration and pres
ently sauntered into a stall occupied
by a mule. This fellow, moved either
by hunger or a bad temper, put down
his head and bit on" the poor little
chick's two wiugs.
Strange to relate, but true, neverthe
less, this chicken lived to grow up. Of
course it was uever as other chickens,
and it had to be very careful about
running too fast. It could tear along
in a straight line without trouble, but
if it turned a coiner on the run, over it
went. In losing its wings it had lost
The poor thing came to a premature
end. One night it fell off the roost
and landed exactly on its back. With
out its wings it could not right itself,
and the next morning it was dead.—

In a great city is nearly as great as
that of the beef eaten in the same city.
This is a startling statement, but It is
supported by the evidence of statistics

Dnless the Parisians arc for some rea

a paper read to the Paris Academy of

on an average 100 grams (1,543 grains),

the food value of one kilogram (2.2
pounds) of meat. A fowl in a few days
