FOR SUCCESS WITH POULTRY
Practical Way of lulldfni Up Laying
Strain f Htfta la to ft' Those
With Best Records,
Trap nests are the best guide-post
to success. They point out the hens
that are doing good work, and expose
the drones. They not only tell you
how many eggs each individual hen
laying in a year, bnt they also point
out the color of the shell and the
shape of the egg.
The time is near at hand when hens
will be sold on their egg records, and
prices governed accordingly.
It Is an eccepted fact that the only
way to build up a laying strain of
hens is to breed from those giving the
best records, says the Farm Journal.
By annually picking out the beet of
the flock. It is possible each year to
Increase the average of the flock.
In line with the introduction of
trap nesting came the question of the
laying hens giving a better percent
age of fertile eggs, as well as receiv
ing an extra allowance of feed. It is
more difficult to overfatten a ben
that is doing steady laying than it
it one that is not laying. It remained
for a man by the name of Albert
Angell, Jr., to strike the proper idea
in this direction.
Briefly stated, this system consists
of a houBe and yard divided into two
unequal parts. One side Is large
enough for 1 hens, and the smaller
side is for the cock. In the house are
trap nests with two openings. Every
night the hens are put in the larger
house. The cock stays permanently
In his own quarters. Every hen that
lays an egg .or enters a trap nest
goes out into the apartment with the
male. When night cornea, the laying
hens are all with the male and they
then are returned to their own side of
the house and yard, to go through the
same process each day. In the morn
ing the male bird Is alone. The trap
nest is made by simply fashioning
two light doors, using one-inch mesh
wire netting. The door to the nest
which the hen enters to lay is hinged
from the InBide, and Is pushed open
by the hen, and closes behlng her.
The door in the rear of the nest open-
a . . v i.. vi j
1! out into the cock s yard, is hinged
from the outside. When the hen en
ters the cock's pen she can not re
turn, as will readily be seen. These
doors, or gates, are light, and work
easily, and should be the size of the
entrance of the next box and hinged
to the top.
The illustration, a popular make of
trap nests, such as is used on many of
the large poultry farms. A shows
trap nest turned to open nest
B' shows nest closed after hen
has entered. C shows trap set
When a hen is through laying she
will stick her bead out of the nest
and cackle, and should then be re
On the leg of each hen is placed
an aluminum band on which Is stamp
ed a number. Upon opening the door
of the trap the hen Is picked np and
her number ascertained. This is then
written oa the ext. a4 at night a
