Among the Poultry.
Pullets are rarely too fat to lay. Light Brahmas are good winter layers. If earth is used as an absorbent remove it before it become foul. Generally the best turkeys for breeding are those two years old. When you can keep 50hens prof itably you can readily keep more. If turkeys can be given a free range they can be raised very cheap ly Too much corn given to the ducks now may make them too fat to lay well. Early matured stock cost less than those that grow and mature more slowly. In nearly all cases it is best to be ready to set hens whenever they show an inclination. Young chickens will readily eat wheat when two weeks old, and it is better than corn. Chopped onions fed twice a week now will help to keep the fowls in a healthy condition. The principal reason why cooked food fattens more rapidly is that it is more readily digested. A poor hen will not lay at all; a fat one will lay few eggs, and these will not be good for hatching. Millet and sorghum seeds make a splendid feed for young poultry, whether in the brooder or with the hens. A good rule is to use the large roosters of the small breeds and the small roosters of the large breeds. A safe rule is to keep a good hen that has proved herself, unless you are certain you have a better one to take her place. Pullets that are hatched in Feb ruary will usually begin laying in September, in time to take the place of the moulting hens. When the poultry can run out it is best not to feed them too much. If they have a good appetite they will hustle around more. While there is leisure is a good time to make a supply of pens that will restrain the old hens and let the chickens run at large. Ducks have two advantages over chickens. One is that they are much less liable to disease and the other is that they are not troubled with lice. They are also great egg producers. People become tired of eating beef through the winter, and when spring comes and with it the spring chickens there is a demand for them. There is nothing like being prepared for the market. Birds with large combs, such as the Leghorns, are easily affected by cold winds when the weather is severe, the comb sometimes becom ing frozen. When this happens the bird is then in pain and becomes useless until the comb heals. The freezing of the combs is one of the obstacles that cannot easily be over come; but it may be partially avoid ed by anointing the combs with glycerine once or twice a week. The Daaea aa Butter-Makers. The Danes lead the work as but ter-makers. Danish butter has tak en the first prize at most of the World’s Fairs, including the Phila delphia Centennial. Danish colo nies are settling in the United States with the idea of supplying the great cities with Danish-made butter, and it is not improbable that the Danish methods of conducting the dairy may supplant those in use in the United States. From the northern part of Pennsylvania, where large quantities of potted butter are made for the city markets, and where the question of better methods and better results is always a pressing one, a number of dairy men have gone to Illinois for the purpose of inspecting the Danish improved system of butter-making, and with the idea of introducing the system in Northern Pennsylva nia. If more farmers would engage in such investigations, farming would be a more prosperous business than it is. ■irklei’a Arulra Halve. The Best Salve In the world for Cuts, Bruises, Bores, Ulcers.
