SUNFLOWER SEEDS AS FEED

Poultrymen?With Grain Make
The fact that sunflower seod? make
good poultry feed is ?ot fully appre
ciated by all. With any grain they
make a well balanced ration These
llowers grow well upon all Irrigated
tracts. The growth is very rapid and
the large broad leaves afford excellent
shade for the young chicks. It 1b al
ways a wise policy to plant the Beeds
so that they can be conveniently used.
The falling seeds are thus Baved and
the shade afforded is very valuable.
Sunflowers grow and produce the
largest heads whev planted In rows
and cared for like corn. It Is always
advisable to allow tho beads to be
come thoroughly ripe before harvest
ing. Cut as little of the stalk off with
the heads us possible. The heads are
conveniently fed whole, especially
during the winter months. When fed
in this way it will bo found that the
i.eeds are relished by the fowls.
When the poultry lb molting there

millet .re sometimes fed with the
sunflower feed. This makes a ration
very valuable, not only because of
Its affording a variety but because of
the valuable feed constituents that
these grains contain. This ration,

EXCELLENT BREEDS FOR EGGS

If eggs alone are wanted, it will be
best to keep only non-sitting breeds,
of which Leghorns, Mlnorcas, Andalu
sians, Houdans, or Hamburgs will do
well on the farm. If necessary, the
eggs may be hatched In Incubators,
which, In careful hands, now do good
work; or a few may also be kept of I

useless for showing, can usually be
obtained at a low price; and after all
is said against "fancy'' birds, as a

fowls. Often, when there is any one
on the farm who cares about It. It
will bo best to make up every year a
special breeding lot of fine birds. No
farmer would expect to make his oth

fowls to pay either, unless he will
give the same ordinary thought and
