America will be using them as much

careless the way they drop those

According to Professor Kempster,
one way of doubling the production is
for each farmer to raise 200 chicks
this year. This will average about 100
cs?krels and 100 pullets to the farmer.
Keep 125 hens and puHets during the
winter and take such care of them that
each one will lay ten dozen eggs dur
