Clemons Woman Who
Makes Poultry Pay
Mrs. Joseph Eley, wife of a well
known farmer living near Clemons,
has demonstrated that poultry kept on
a farm, and given some degree of
careful attention, can be made to pay.
Mrs. Eley has not been able to give
her birds the care that they really de
served, or she feels she could have
made even a better showing. Neither
has she had the advantages, afforded
to some, in the way of exceptionally
well built quarters.
Mrs. Eley has kept close account of
all eggs gathered during the year just
closed, also the receipts from
Mrs. Eley's figures would be even
more interesting if she had kept some
account, or even made an estimate
of what it cost to keep the chickens
that yielded this income. This is hard
to do on a farm, however, as the birds
forage a good deal in ranging, and
the fxact amount or value of grain
consumed Is hard to estimate. It is
safe to say, however, that a good
protit has been shown.
Mrs. Eley kept last year lr\ '^ie
neighborhood of 300 hens.^fc^^,
Brown Leghorns. Last spr? She
crossed them with Buff Orpingtons,
and she does not expect to do so well
this year. She disposed of over 100
old hens during the year, and the
skunks played havoc with her young
chicks, so that she does not have
the stock of pullets on hand this win
ter that she did last.
