Jno of the most Important step3 j

1 proper selection of breeding stock. I
liatehob'.e egge, weak poults, and ! t
all, scrubby turkeys nre largely the ! j
ult r? carelessness In the selection ?
the parent stock. In selecting torMi
for breeding purposes, strength _
I vigor are the first points to be
istdered. To Indicate this the body

Inbreeding Is harmful and If carried

each year to obtain a new torn
'i 'unrelated blood, but of the same
h'pe. Nothing is to bo gained by
I tossing varieties, as such practice
loon reduces purebreds to mongrels.
,The most satisfactory time of year

cumber to choose from, but the birds

with their new surroundings

a top of them and then jump down
n the other side. In the case of a
ire fence, however, there is no place
n which to alight, and under ordinary
'Ircumstances they do not make the
Lttempt. For this reason steel posts
Jre better than wooden posts for a

sharpened at the tops.

i'he case In the southern portion of the

to keep the birds In good condlton.
During the winter northern turkey
raisers usually feed twice a day .
