"Let the state pass laws to sur

System Gives Rest of Incubator Hatch
a Better Opportunity.
Infertile eggs should be removed
from the incubator not later than the
eighth day, to give tho fertile eggs a
better chance to develop evenly. Lifo
inside of an egg shell develops some
heat when in process of Incubation,
but an infertile egg absorbs the heat
without giving off any.
An infertile egg which touches one
containing a developing .chick will re
di'co the normal heat at that point at
least one degree in the fertile egg.
The eggs should be tested out again
or the fourteenth day to detect any
dead germs, which sometimes occur
Irom low vitality or other causes.
A rotten egg in a heated Incubator
will exude foul gases which lower the
