Study the Points of a Good Layer
Robber hens and cow cause enormous
losses eery year, and it is amazing how
little effort is made to detect and dispose
of them. When a chicken thief enter
a poultry yard and manages to go off
with a few valuable hens, a great cry
goc up and local authorities are made
to search diligently to find the thief;
yet the very same poultryman will kee
be visited every hour during that period
of the day when the hens are most apt
to lay, and a careful record kept of the
eggs laid. This may seem like a good
bit of extra work, but if it helps to weed
out the poor layers, the time is well
spent. The most baneful result of har
boring poor layers is not from the hena
themselves so much, as from unknow
ingly using their eggs for hatching and
thus perpetuating a race of poor layers.
If every poultry raiser would make m
hard and fast rule never to raise chicks
from hens laying less than 2)0 eggs
year, the return from poultry would no!
only be doubled, but trebled. It may b
that some men are too busy to attend
to trap-nests for more than a month or
two, but even that will detect some of
the worst offenders. However, an effort
should lie made with the help of other
incmlsTs of the family to keep up tba
good woik lor four montlis at least.
After a few months' use of the trap-
nests, a difference will begin to be Been
