The Food Administration tells u.

I want to insist that all pou1 try keep
ers begin to raise the pure-bred poul
try. Pu re-bred poultry Is more pro
(Itable for supplying eggs and chick
ens than the mongrels. The pure-bred
chickens of the general purpose type
will, dliring the growing period. make
a more rapid and economical gail in
weight than mongrels. At no age are
mongrel chickens so salable as pure..
breds, and, for satisfying the demands
of the critical egg and poultry markets
that require a iiniform production of
high duality chickens, mongrel poul
try Is not satisfactory. Of the general
utility breed the llarred Plymouth
Ilocks, the Rhode Island Reds and the
WyanIottes are recommended.

be kept in a basket in a cool room, and
