DRINKING WATER FOR FOWLS Sufficient Supply, Frequently Renewed, Is as Necessary as Proper Amount of Pood. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) If your flock of poultry has not been doing as well as you think it ought to, perhaps it is because you have not been providing the chickens with a supply of fresh, pure drinking water. Of course, lack of thrift and low egg yields may be due to a number of other certain causes, such as poor stock, poor feed (both quality and quantity), bad housing conditions, diseases, presence of lice and- mites, and lack of care. But for some reason many poultry raisers who give attention to these items sometimes neglect the water supply. A supply of pure drinking wa ter frequently renewed Is as necessary for poultry as sufficient amounts of food. There are two different types of drinking vessels for poultry in com mon use: Open vessels—palls, pans, crocks and the like and drinking foun tains so constructed that dust and dirt cannot get into the water except by way of a very small exposed surface. These quite opposite types of drink ing vessels are about equally popular with poultry keepers. Open vessels catch more dirt and dust, but are more easily cleaned. Closed fountains may be used much longer without cleaning, but if allowed to become foul are hard er to clean thoroughly. Placing open drinking vessels on a shelf a foot or more above the floor prevents the hens from scratching coarse litter into them, but does not keep out the dust which flouts fh the air and settles in the water. Thoroughly rinsing open vessels once a day and scalding drinking fountains once or twice a week will usually keep them as clean as necessary. VARIATION IN BARRED ROCKS Pains Must Be Taken to Keep Fowls Typical of the Variety They Represent. To see the many flocks of chickens over the country, varying in size, shape and color, yet all dubbed pure bred Plymouth Rocks, or Reds, or Wy andottes, as the case may be, leads one to wonder if breeders, aside from those who breed for the showroom, know what the type of' their breed Is. The variation in a Barred Rock, or Barred Plymouth Rock Cockerel. Bed, or "Dotte," from the type of bird accepted by the standard, is great. Unless some pains are taken to keep the birds of a breed typical of the va riety they represent, a comparatively short time makes all the breeds look alike. RIGHT QUALITIES OF MALES They Should Be Gallant, but Not Too Generous, and Thus Deprive Him self—Study Nature of Bird. The male should be gallant, ever ready to share his meals with the hens but he must not be too gener ous and thus deprive himself, or he will be underfed, become nervous, and not prove to be a good breeder. Tiie glutton male is equally bad. He lie comes overfat while the hens do not get tlieir share, and the consequence is poor fertility. The nature of every male bird should be studied. Or A kkk-k-k 1 SAVE THE HENS. jf (Prepared by tiie United States De partment of Agriculture.) Every pullet and young hen sold for food this winter means a reduction of from five to twelve dozen eggs in the poten tial egg supply of next spring and summer. $ Hundreds of thousands of farmers who have not raised poultry will do so next spring and summer—responding to the demand for more chickens and eggs so that beef and pork will be released to help win the war. They will need young hens. The United States department of agriculture urges the saving of fowls of producing qualities, so that they may be used for stock in the early spring. 7 DR. J. H.
