EVERY poultry keeper and every farmer
should produce infertile eggs this summer.
You can do this oy removing all the male
birds in your flock, and now is the time. Now, Mr.
Producer, do you realize that here we have the
opportunity to increase our food supply and your
profits without any increase in cost, labor or ex
pense to you? Simply sell, kill or pen up all male
birds on your farm.
During the Summer Months
a rooster is an alien enemy to our nation's food
sppply and should be treated as such. "Can" the
the rooster and help lick the Kaiser by producing
infertile eggs this year. Will make an extra price
on roosters beginning May 30 and lasting a few
days. Bring all of them, as one rooster will spoil
a lot of eggs.
