Tilings to Consider When Buyi ng an Incubator—Some Details of Care and Management. By Prof. J. S. Jeffrey. fTlHE QUESTION Is sometimes I raised whether the incubator should be used on the farm or not; w’hether there is a place on the . average farm wrhere poultry is one * of the smaller farm products, for a machine that has been very generally considered a3 belonging to the spe cialist. There are several points to be considered in deciding this question. The market conditions, the number of chicks wanted, the purpose for which the chicks are raised and the temperament of the person who has the poultry in charge. In some markets there is little or no advantage in price according to the season, but in most the early crop brings the best price and finds the readiest sale. If the chickens | are wanted early in the season, the incubator must be used as while a few hens will occasionally set early, they can not be depended on to any extent for this work. If oaly a few chickens are raised each year, the cost of the incubator will take most of the profit, while if a large number are to be hatched, the saving in labor by the use of the incubator will be an important factor. If the farmer is raising pure-bred stock to sell for breeding purposes, I would not recommend the use of the incubator unless one of the non sitting varieties are kept. For hatching and raising the breeding stock there is something about the old hen that we have never been able to get in any incubator or brooder. The person taking charge of the poultry must also be considered in deciding this question. Some people like to w'ork with, the hens and have a knack in handling them which gives the best results; others dis turb and frighten them every time they come near them. On the other hand, there is a difference in peo ple handling an incubator. A few years ago two ladies bought the same make of incubators on my re commendation. One made a suc cess of hatching with the machine from the very first, and the other never had a satisfactory hatch, and after three or four attempts, decid ed that incubators were a failure. | and sold hers. My advice in regard to the incu bator would be: If you have a mar ket for early chicks at a profitable price use the Incubator as that is the only way you can depend on having any quantity of early chicks. For your breeding stock use hens until you are satisfied that you are hatching as good chicks with the in cubator as you do with hens. If you decide to get an Incubator, get a good one. The cheap machines are mostly single-wall machines and need a great deal more attention to keep the temperature even than the better-built machines do. The three chief requisites for good hatching are, heat, moisture and ventilation; of these the heat is per haps the easiest to get and regulate. Most beginners worry unnecessarily if the temperature varies a degree or two either up or down. It is ne- ; cessary to have an average tempera ture of 103 degrees on a thermome ter hung Just above the eggs, but It is not necessary, or perhaps not even best, that the temperature remain just at this point throughout the hatch. in some maxes or incubators pro vision is made for supplying moist ure during the hatch, while other makers claim that with their ma chines this is not necessary. Our experience has been that even with the so-called non-moisture machines better results can be obtained in most cases where moiBture is sup plied. Thorough disinfection also helps. For the paBt two seasons we have disinfected all our incubators Just before the hatch begins. The ma chine is heated and regulated, and then when we are ready to put in the eggs the tray is washed with a 5 per cent solution of Zenoleum or Chloro-Naptholeum, and the eggs put in it. Then wash the inside of the machine thoroughly, top, bottom, and sides, and then put in the eggs and close it up. We supply moist ure by the use of a tray of wet Band in the botton of the incubator. If your machine ventilates through the bottom, care must be taken to avoid cutting this off. In this case the tray should be 3 or 4 inches smaller each way than the inside measure ment of the machine. Place two strips an inch Bquare across the bot tom from back to front and place the sand tray on them. The pan need not be more than one inch deep. Leave the tray in until the eggs be gin to pip, which should bo on the twentieth day. For the first day do not touch the eggs. After that time turn twice a day. it is not necessary to turn each egg over, but simply to shuffle them in the tray, to change their position. When the tray is full some of the eggs should be taken out. to ■ Intake room. Take the eggs from Rose Comb White Wyandotte* wllh a »how record.
