Poultry Pointers
For January
In this time of comparatively low
prices for poultry meat and eggs
nearly every day some farmer tells
us that there isn’t anything to be
made with chickens. The men who
tell us that, however, are not those
who are getting 40 to 60 per cent
production from their hens, as a
few owners are doing.
A survey of the poultry manage-1
ment of farm flocks shows that the
majority are not properly housed. A
comparatively small per cent of the
flocks are well fed and where the
owners are feeding much of the
feed is wasted because of poor
equipment. Fewer still have an ade
quate supply of fresh clean water
and next to air that is the least ex
pensive essential to maintain life.
Because of poor housing or insuffi
cient floor space in the houses the
birds are given free range which
means they spend much of the day,
humped up in sheltered spots and
away from feed and water. Many
of the flocks are badly infested with
The bad things named above surely
do not apply to many who receive i
these monthly pointers but do to
some of their neighbors. It might
be a good thing for the better in
formed to talk chickens a little more1
during the next twelve months. Tell
your neighbors that flock of hens
gives some income every week and
a profit over all costs if properly
managed. During January atten
tion should be given the following:
1. Provide clean, fresh, warm wat
er several times daily. Laying hens
must drink lots of water and won’t
drink enough if it is ice cold.
2. Give the hens an opportunity
to eat as much grain and mash as
they can. They must have grain to
maintain body temperature and mash
to make eggs.
3. Confine the hens until noon.
They will eat more feed and pro
duce more and cleaner eggs. If the
house isn’t large enough for the
flock, cull the birds to fit the house
or remodel and enlarge the house.
Crowding doesn’t pay.
4. Treat the birds for lice. Nico
tine sulphate or sodium fluoride does
the work. Lice multiply the year
around. You might be surprised to
find that your birds have lice. Look.
5. Gather the eggs often in freez
ing weather and store them in a
cool room.
6. Do you know whether your flock
is showing a profit or is being kept
at a loss? Keep records. Your
guess may not be right.
7. The information you may need
to be able to make poultry keeping
more profitable is contained in free
circulars which you can obtain from
your county agent.
8. Resolve to do a more efficient
job than you ever did before. Work,
not neglect, is necessary if profits
are made.

Our Want-ads bring best results.
HERE are four bang-up reasons why thousands will
choose new Farmall power partners this year. These
reasons are the four new models in the Farmall family
.. Farmall-M, Farmall-H, Farmall-B, and Farmall-A
hailed by owners as the greatest all-purpose tractors that
ever rolled off an assembly line.
Each of these new McCormick-Deering Tractors hits a
new high in its own field—new highs in performance, com
fort, fuel economy, and appearance!
On the solid foundation of Farmall success, Harvester
engineers have designed and built this entirely new and
modern line of all-purpose tractors. Speed, zip, color and
two-fisted power are the keynotes!
