Tens of Thousands of Birds Are

SOURCE OF BEST QUALITIES.
(ew Jersey, New York and Xm Edz
land States Snpplr the Finest Va
rietlea. the Cheaper Knrnlahed by
the West Speculation In Poultry
ly Country Storekeepers.
A wholesale poultry dealer recently
saiil that turkeys, geese, chickens ami
lucks tlesiinietl to grace the festival
board on Thauksiriviui: day are arriv-
inir by the tens of thousands iu New
-Where do the birds come from prin
cioallyV asked the reporter of the
New York Suu.
-Much of the poultry handled here,'
was the reiIy. "comes from up the
state. New Jersey, New Kuglaud ami
the western states. After the eggs are
hatched out in the spring, at which
time worms, insects, sprouting vege
tation and other delectable food are
abundant, the young chickens thrive
without much attention and continue
to thrive with an ordinary amount or
protection from inclement weatuer
through the summer until early fall,
when the natural food on the earth be
comes less. J. lien carerui reeuing is
reu uired. and the real care begins in
preparing them for the holiday trade.
It is difficult to raise turkeys for
the metropolitan market, which is the
most exacting in the country, so I am
informed by dealers from other parts.
Turkeys are natural born tramps and
are apt to stray, no matter now care
fully watched. They will walk or run
many hours over the roafls. pardons
and fields in search of trpetlKing
worms and grubs, practically grass
hoppers, for which they have, an un
conquerable passion. If the season is
a long one, it is necessary to confine the
turkeys to a small area and watch
them closely, otherwise they will run
until they are thin as razorhack hogs
ami tougher than leather. Hesides, in
following this disposition to roam the
bird.-? frequently succumb to exposure,
while many of the young ones lose
themselves and jterish in tall grass
and swampy tracts, as they follow the
olilcr turkeys about in search of food."
'Which are the best selling tur
'Young ones hatched In April or
May and fattened with care and skill
during October and early November
bring the best prices in the Thauks-
iving market and command the readi
est sale. Birds of this description
usually have firm, white flesh, which is
characterized by tenderness and ex
treme toothsomeness. From 10 to 13
or 14 pounds Is the proper weight for
such turkeys. Youngsters weighing a
trifle more often lind ready sale in
New Y'ork. but the tremendous old gob
bler, weighing anywhere from 18 to
2.1 pounds, a size much approved In
New Kngland. is not sold readily.
There is some prejudice against big
birds in this market, for. unless extra
care and skill are brought to bear in
the cooking, they are very likely to a;
pear on the carving table tough ami
And the chickens?"
Well, at the present moment and I
so specify, for nothing is so variable
as the demand for certain products
the Shanghais and the Plymouth Uocks
are the most marketable chickens.
Iloth varieties grow rapidly and are
readily fattened. Moreover, they are
not more than ordinarily susceptible
to climatic changes. Most of those
who raise Shanghais or Plymouth
IJocks for market hatch the young
chickens along about Easter, and in
order that all may not be ready at one
time others are set from time to time
until June. Few chicken? hatched
later than this will mature sufficiently
before cold weather sets In. Over in
Jersey and in Long Island, where more
than ordinary attetition is paid to the
raising of the birds, some farmers
make a specialty of raising broilers.
Chickens so designated are watched
and tended as carefully as the tow
heads about the place all the year
round. This branch of the chicken In
dustry necessitates the expenditure of
much time and is a far more difficult
business than the ordinary farmer de
sires to burden himself with.
"There are two distinct kinds of
poultry brought to this market: First,
the excellent, dry picked birds from
New Jersey and other adjacent states:
second, birds packed In ice which
arrive In great quantities from the
western states. In nearly every
part of the chicken raising east tbe
birds are killed, picked dry and then
sent to market packed in Ihjxcs or bar
rels with straw. The bulk of this stock
is sent by individual farmers to some
commission firm. Few farmers send
on an average more than 1.000 pounds
at one time, while the majority send
100 or 2i0 pounds. At this season
there is always a great deal of specu
lation In poultry among crossroads
grocers and small merchants in vil
lages and towns near chicken raising
districts. One of them will buy up the
poultry of his neighbors or customers
and consign tbe birds in lots ranging
from l.OOO to o.uuo pounds to some
wholesale firm of poulterers in New
York. Much of this sort of speculating
is done in New Jersey, and some men
reap small fortunes annually. In In
stances the speculator contracts for
months ahead with a farmer for his
total otttpnt. paying him part of the
money down, possibly at a time when
ready cash is most needed, thus secur
ing a handsome bargain. Every once
In awhile a ionlTry dealer from this
city will make tbe rounds of nearby
farms and buy np the chickens, ducks,
pese and turkeys, but the bulk of the
psultry from adjacent states comes to
rsiw York in small consignments and
represents iart of the industry of tbe
bard worked women on the small
farms iu tbe New England and the At
lantic states. Such birds are the very
best to be had and command higher
prices than birds prepared with less
care and sent from longer distances.
They reach our dealers by express or
fast freight, and their keeping quali
ties in cold weather are excellent.
"Out west thiugs are run on a slightly
different plaa. As iu the east, the buli
of the poultry is raised 011 small farms,
but in the fall and early winter mouths
the poultry buyers drive around the
count rv and purchase the live stock ct
usually from four to six cents a pound,
The buver shuts his birds up iu ctnips
and carts them off to his killing house.
where they meet the inevitable end.
They are then plunged into boiling hot
water, their feathers are stripped oil.
and after they have become thoroughly
cooled thev are packed in loxes and
barrels, placed on board refrigerator
tars and forwarded to the large cities.
Usually, they are consigned to commis
siou houses, the buyers taking the risk
of any loss. The season for buyiu
poultry is a short one. It begins iu late
i.ti.tu.!. itfki-it itniett until tlti very
"-" ' --w
cold weather sets in, when many or
the roads in tbe west are simply im
passable for weeks at a time."
"Is not the loss on western poultry
in transit considerable?"
"No. It is only when the birds so
shinned are not allowed to cool thor
oughly before being packed that they
stK)il oil the way, and this seldom hap
pens. A great deal of the poultry from
tbe west is frozen after it readies New
York, and is kept throughout the win
ter, and sometimes into the summer
mouths, beiug removed from the freez
ers as it is renuireu. liie ice is never
permitted to touch the tleslu aud the
packed barrels and boxes are removed
from the refrigerator cars tbe moment
fhey arrive and placed iu the cold stor
age houses, where they are rapidly
frozen to a state of solidity, and in this
way they are preserved almost in
definitely. When wanted for use, the
birds are easily thawed out. There is
another sort which is known to the
trade as iced poultry. This is' far dif
ferent, for the birds are packed in ice
in tbe barrels. First a layer of poultry
is put in, then a layer of ice. This
method is principally employed when
tbe birds are shipped from the west
during the summer months and the re
frigerator cars do not generate sutH
cient coolness to keep the poultry
sweet for a long journey across the
country. Its deleterious eliect on the
stock consists in causing the flesh to
become too moist and the skin to
change color as the ice melts. Very
often birds so shipped have a soaked
appearance, and direct contact with
the ice impairs tbe taste more or less,
1 Ins western poultry business is
conducted on an immense scale," con
tinued the dealer Impressively, "aud
there are many great firms with for
tunes back of them engaged In it. Out
in Kansas there Is one firm which
ships every fall and winter hundreds
of carloads of chickens, ducks, turkeys
anil geese to New York. I Hiring the
ten days preceding Thanksgiving this
concern will send here from O to
arlnads a day, and for the same time
prior to Christmas the shipments lroin
this firm will run much larger.
Turkeys, geese, ducks and chickens
will probably be higher this year than
last on account of the early closing of
the fall, which restricted the bird
supply of natural food and compelled
tbe raisers to feed them sooner than
usual. However, this will insure the
retail purchasers plumper and more
succulent birds. From 15 to 1G cents
pound will lie asked iu all likelihood
for the best dry picked turkeys, but at
such prices the prime Jersey and Penn
sylvania birds may be bad. Such
stock Is the best that readies thi
market. At retail chickens will bring
about 12 or 13 cents a pound. The
western stock will sell for from 3 to 4
cents a pound less.
"One tiling which we poultry men
have noticed in recent years with some
interest as well as profit is the growin
popularity of the goose during Thanks
giving or the holidays. Formerly the
demaud was almost exclusively con
fined to the Irish, English aud He
brews, but nowadays all nationalities
geem to subscribe to the undoubted
gastronomic virtues of the bird. Geese
are raised with the other poultry by
the ordinary farmers and come to
market with tbe always popular duck
In tbe same boxes aud barrels which
contain chickens and turkeys."
