Simply finding our chicks dead In tho brooder In the morning when they nro all crowded In a corner Is not BilfTlclcnt proof that they died from tod low n tempernturc Sick, weakly nnd Indisposed chicks will always hud dle together whether they nro cold or not They will not huddlo together, how ever, should tho temperaturo bo ex cessively high. Id which event they will spread apart, and when found dead will usually bo llng on their breasts ThU condition, how over.

Tho greatest handicap In mating unrelated birds Is to Unci strjlns with llko characteristics.

In this way they can furnish their pntrons uew blood whenever desired. Many a good strain Is fun down or ruined because, of lack of experience of tho breeder.
