D. No. 2. - - - Macon, Miss. low TO GRADE UI* THE FLOCK, j - \ f You Think You Can Not Afford s Pure-Breds, You Can at Least Grade Up Your Common Stock. i Messrs Editors: “More and bet- 1 :er poultry” has long been the slo gan of poultry fanciers, but to-day it should be the cry of every house wife and young lady in the South who has a small plot of ground that :ould be devoted to poultry. The general impression seems to be, if one has a few barnyard fowls left to run at large and find their own feed, and roost in the trees or any old out-house, that is all that is necessary. Can you expect to produce long staple cotton from com mon seed, or a good horse, cow, or pig from scrub parent stock? You will say that is impossible, well, It is just the same with poultry. But I hear you say you cannot afford to buy the pure bred chickens, they are too high. It looks that way to start with, but let us do a little figuring: Say you have 20 mongrel hens that average you 80 eggs each a year. At 25c. per dozen, “a good price for the season of the year,” that gives you $1.67 per hen. Now your neighbor has 20 pure bred hens that average her 150 eggs each a year, most of them in the fall and winter when eggs are high and 33c. is a low average. That gives her 12% dozen eggs and at 33c., will give her $4.62 per hen. Feed costs no more ior me sianaara Drea dux see the results. Con you afford to keep the mongrels? I think not. If you cannot afford to buy a pen of standard bred chickens, the next best thing to do is to kill off every cock that you have, get one or two high-grade standard cocks or cocker els right away, for this is the time to start. Keep a record of the num ber of hens you have and the num ber of eggs you get and see what your average number of eggs is per hen for 1910. In September, before they start to moult, sell off all of your old stock, hens, cocks and the young cockerels, and start the year 1911 with the young stock that you raised and two or three new cocks or cockerels of the same breed, keep a record of the eggs gathered and you will note at least a 50 per cent gain in eggs without any additional expense for feed. Go through the same process in 1912 and you will still see a marked gain in eggs as well as the improvement in your chickens, for you will have them up very near standard. If the ladies would consider thir seriously and look into the matter carefully they would find nothing that would pay them so well for the time devoted to it. R. C. STOCKTON. Memphis, Tenn. To Re Sure of Pure Eggs. A correspondent wants to kno ow long it will be necessary to se rate her two breeds of poultry b 'ore she can save eggs for hatchin ith a certainty of having no admi ■re of the breeds. This is an ■ — -- The Useful Guinea Fowl. portant point on many farms wher< more than ono breed is kept. O' course, the regular poultry brecdei knows and takes care to guard igainst mixing his breeds, but the leginner and the careless man, often ell eggs for hatching which are not Tom pure matings, owing to this :ause. For this reason also it is generally wise not to keep more than :>ne breed on the place unless con siderable care is taken to properly restrict the breeding stock. We have had many complaints of dissatisfac tion with eggs purchased for hatch ing, that probably resulted from carelessness along this line. We believe the usual advice is to keep the breeds separated for not A Fine-Looking White Wyandotte. less than three weeks before saving eggs for hatching, and a month would do no harm. Notes on Turkey Raising. Messrs Editors: The turkeys to raise from should be on the yard by this time, in order to get accustomed to their surroundings. It is best to get stock in the fall, as the flock is larger to select from and the price is not so high. . If this has not been done, it will pay better to buy eggs for the next season. I shall not use barrels for nests next spring, as my hens did not like them last year. I am going to try tent-shaped coops that can be used for roosting in, after the hatch is over. The coop should be moved often as cleanliness is necessary to the welfare of the poults. Coops should be kept under sheds in wet weather. If the runs get lamp, cover with dry hay or straw to keep the little ones dry and A’arm while taking the exercise they require. iju not Keep iouu auu which i coops. Let them eat and drink and remove. Dust hen often when con fined and look after the little ones, ^ too. Provide a dust bath at all times. Bread crumbs, biscuit, boiled rice and eggs make an ideal food for young turkeys. Moisten with milk and sprinkle with black pepper on cool mornings. Charcoal put in feed occasionally is a help to keep off bowel trouble. MRS. J. W. SUMMERS. Mississippi. Poultrymen should remember that liens should always be kept busy searching for food, so that they may get sufficient exercise. The fowls should be sent to roost at night with full crops and gotten off the roost in the morning to scratch in straw or leaves for grain during the day. Prof. J. G. Halpin. Dr. S. C. Tatum, Center, Ala., won the special premium offered by The Progressive Farmer and Gazette for the best pen of chickens, any breed, exhibited at the North Alabama Poul try Show, Gadsden, Ala., on a pen of Single Comb White Leghorns.
