Importance of Clranllnraa la h
l'oltrr Yarda.
Ferfect cleanliness Is of the highest
Importance la the jwiltry yards and
houses during the entire yeur, but 1b
especially necessary In the sultry sum
mer months, when every detail should
be carefully attended to which may be
of any possible benefit to the growth
and development of the young stock.
Fowls which have the very liest of food
and care lu other reMiect8 will not
thrive when confined In unclean and
111 ventlluted houses and pons, writes
IV. II. Works In American Poultry
Journal. Cleanliness Is highly neces
sary In the rearing of young chicks, no
matter whether they are Intended for
exhibition stock, for breeders or for
the market.
Ity cleanliness Is not meant the use
of a large ijuantlty of disinfectants
which may give the appearance of
cleanliness, although these are undoubt
edly good to use hi connection with the
care of the poultry quarters. Cleanli
ness Is of such great account In the
summer that In many cases It may
mean the saving of the life of a chick
as well as the health and growth, for
cleanliness Is the foe of vermin, and
vermin Is the cause of a majority of
the poultry losses nnd diseases.
The houses for the young stock should
be dry and well ventilated, and the
chicks should be kept from crowding
and taught to go on the roosts as soon
as possible, so that there will be no
danger of deformed breastbones caused
by overcrowding. The brood coops and
brooders should receive much of the
poultryman's attention during the hot
season, nnd the little chicks should
bavo clean, dry straw on the floors of
their coops and also plenty of fresh air
and shade.
Lime Is one of the best things to use
In the houses, either In the form of
whitewash or sprinkled about the floor
as a powder. Carbolic acid Is also a
good disinfectant, and kerosene should
be used In the fight against lice and
mites. The chicks need to be dusted
with Insect powder and their dusting
places sprinkled with It. The ynrdit
should be dug up often and disinfected
with lima nd carbolic nctd, so that
the ground will not become old and
full of disease germs.
Handling Egs.
la cold weather gather the eggs often
In order thut they do not get chilled,
says Dr. I Watson In American Poul
try Journal. Keeping eggs lowers their
vitality. If kept at too. low a tempera
ture the chilling injures them. If, on
the other hand, the temperature Is too
warm development begins. Just the
proper temperature to hold the eggs at
Intended for hatching Is uot known,
that generally recognized as best being
between 65 and 05 degrees F. If kept
In too dry a room eggs evaporate mois
ture very rapidly. They should, there
fore, not be exposed to a direct draft
of air. They should be turned dally In
order to prevent the yolks adhering to
the shell, In which case the vitelline
membrane may become ruptured when
eggs ure turned. Eggs should prove fer
tile and may he saved for hatching
four days after the male has been
placed lu the breeding pen.
The Iliial Iliith.
A dust bath should be provided lu
every breeding pen and should consist
of a shallow box 5 by 4 feet, In which
you place sand, ashes and some sul
phur and n little Insect powder. This
should be shaded lu the summer time.
Keep dry and have a cover to take on
ami off In the winter months. Neglect
of the bath means an Increase of the
fowl liens, which, unlike the blood
mites, which are only found out t
night and hide away during the day,
live on the body of the hen and drain
It of much of the egg forming ele
ments. These parasites lay countless
small white eggs on the downy part of
the feathers, especially under the wings
and near the vent. In the early au
tumn, when the birds usually lose their
old feathers, these eggs ure carried nil
about the farm, are duly hatched and
return to the houses.

(iiaiiulated Meat V hr Poultry,
For those who hove neither time nor
opportunity to prepare meat In other
forms for their poultry the prepared
granulated stuff Is an excellent substi
tute and Is so cheap thut It should nev
er be left out of the diet for growing
chickens and for winter layers, says A.
V. Meersch lu Western Poultry Jour
nal. It is made either from horseflesh
or from tho offal of cattle and is a com
position of (lesb aud bone boiled up
and dried and theu pressed Into blocks,
afterward belug passed through a mill
to be broken up Into convenient sixes.
It Is so prepared that it will keep fresh
and sweet for some considerable Ume,
and when chickens are fed entirely on
dry food It Is convenient to give them
their meat in this form. The amount
to bo given depends largely upon the
slxe of the birds, but a little every day
to each one will make a great difference.
