H Inoxperlonccd poultry rnbisrs nro H tempted to feed chicks Immediately H after thoy arc hatched, but this should H not bo dono. No feed should bo given H boforo tho chicks aro 36 or 48 hours H old. During tho first week feed them H stale broad, plnhcad oatmeal, rolled oats, hard. boiled eggs, or Johunycnko Crumbly, but not sloppy mashes, niodo by mixing with milk, aro considered vnluable. During tho second week ndd cracked wheat, finely cracked corn and hulled oats to tho chicks' ration. After the chicks ore ten days old n gooil growing mash, composed of two parts by weight of bran, two parts middlings, ono part corn meal, ono part low.grndo wheat flour or red. dog middlings, and ton per cent beef scrap, may bo placed In a hopper and left beforo them all tho tlmo. The mash may be fed either wot or dry; If wet, only enough moisturo (either milk or water) should bo ad ded to mako tho feed crumhly. If this moisturo Is not used a hoppor containing bran should bo accessible to tho chickens nt all times. After tho chickens aro two months old they may bo fed four times dally, with good results. When they nro tnreo months old thrco feedings a day arc enough. ' ,.Use .Hoppers In Feeding Chicks, vS At noon as.tho chickens will oat tho whole- whdftt, cracked cornVtirid other grains usually In about 8 weeks tho small-sized chick feed can bo eliminated In addition to tho above cods Bour'mllk, skim mllki'or butter; milk will hasten tho chickens' growth. Growing chickens kept on a good range may be given all their feed In a hopper, mixing two parts by wclgtit" of cracked corn with ono part of wheat, or equal parts of cracked corn, wheat, and oats In ono hopper nnd the, dry mash for chickens In another. Tho beef scrap may bo left out of the dry mash and fed In a separate hopper, so that tho chickens can eat nil of this feed thoy dcslro. It the beet scrap Is to be fed separately it Is ndvlsnblo to wait until tho chicks aro 10 days old, although somo poul trymen put tho beet scrap before Ike young chickens nt the start without bad results. 'Chickens confined to small yards should always bo supplied with green feed, such as lettuce, sprouted oats, alfalfa, or clover, but tho host placo to ralso chickens successfully Is on a H .

I I I i good rnngo .whoro no extra green feod Is required, Where tho chick, ens are kept In small haro yards, flno charcoal, grit, and oyster shell should bo kept beforo them all tho time nnd cracked or ground bono may bo fed. Tho bono Is1 not noccssory for chickens that havo a good range. o housing onowixa chickens Growing chicks should bo provided with a houso thnt wlll.glvo them a placo to stay In bad weather and at night. No particular stylo of house Is recommended, but it should b'o so built thnt It will provide nmplo veiw Illation, dryness, sunlight, freedom from drafts, and bo so arranged that it can bo cleaned easily nnd fro. qucntly. Tho lumber from plant) and dry goods boxes can bo used in building suJh n house, and whon covered with ordinary roofing paper so as to keep out tho rain, will mako dcslrablo quarters. It Is suggested that such houses bo built, on tho colony plan, so thnt thoy ci.n be moved frqm place to placo, thus providing tho chicks with fresh ground to range over. Ele. vnllng such n houso C Inches above tho ground will holp to' kepp the floor dry, by means of tho circulation ot nlr, and such spaco will" also provide shado for tho chicks. In placing tho chicks in their grow ing houso for tho first time, tt Is best to conflno them for sovcrnl days by erecting a temporary yard wherein thoy can run for 5 or C days, until thoy lcnrn whoro to return when tho fenco Is removed nnd they nro allow ed their liberty. Caro should bo tok. en not to crowd tho chicks" by placing too many in any -ono houso. When the chlkcns cover tho greater part of tho floor at night, It Is an Indication that they nro too crowded. At such a time thoy Bhould bo thinned out nnd placed In another houso. cojnramciAL chick fkeds When ono has only a few chickens, It Is less troublo to purchaso prepared chick feeds, but whoro n considerable number nro reared It Is, somotlmcs cheaper to buy tho finely cracked grains nnd mix them togetner. Some chick feeds contain a largo quantity ot grit and may contain grains of poor quality, so that thoy should bo care, fully oxamlnod and guaranty as to quality secured beforo purchase, o ' SYSTEMS OF FEEDING Thorc nro two systems"7 In use for the..fppdtrig, of foyis.W'Uno of which all tho feed 'is"'glvn''dryLMind'in tho other of which ono or .more 'of the" dally feeds consists of a moistened mash. For convonlenco thoy may be termed tho "dry.fced" nnd the 'mosV systems, although in tho dry feed system a dry mash Is often fed. Dry focdlng la used by many whoro It Is not convonlonUto mako and feed a molstonod mash. The. greatest ad vantages to bo dorlved from tho dry syctcm arc the saving of. .labor and the lessened dnngor of bowel troublo resulting from sloppy or soured mash. CB. IIURRT WITH THE HATCH Early chicks develop rapidly Into provident nullcls that re place the lndustrlouff",hens ait flock breadwinners when the molting season an-Irci'. These early pullqts produce In' plenty during tho period when'eggs are scarce and hence high In price. In order that the laic full and Inler siream of eggs may flow to market uninterruptedly It Ih I osscntlul to Ji-mp the traditional barrier nnd hatch early and j hence nlnely.
