NEW MEXICO STATE NEWS A Bird in the Hand (Special Information Service, United States Department of Agrlcultitfe.) ninllT rrpno wnn mitll nr llr-m r-n r-i n n ir. C I mum recua run oiyihlu ounnncu rLUurto 111111 1 I jÍJg Water and Feed Troughs, Inside and Outside Houses, Should Be Protected From Dirt and Straw. OBTAIN RESULTS IN FEEDING HENS Only Grain That It Is Necessary to Crack for Mature Fowls Is Corn. GIVE SEVERAL MEALS A DAY Dry Mash Method Is Most Popular and Convenient With Poultry Keepers Who Are Absent From Home During the Day. The best results in feeding liens for eggs are obtained by giving the birds several meals n day In such form that they cot about equal nmounts of soft and hard feeds. When It Is not convenient to hand-feed them In this way, very good results may be obtain ed by nny plan that furnishes enough feed, In the right variety, under such conditions that they do not gorge them selves nt nny time, and take exercise enough to keep them In good condition. Soft feeds for poultry ore ground grains nnd by-products, vegetables, the flesh parts of animal feed substances, nnd tnble scraps, which are a mixture of such things. Hard feeds arc whole nnd cracked grains, and the mineral parts of nulmal feeds. ' Mixture Is Math. A soft feed mixture Is called n mash. Mashes nre fed cither In a moist or In a dry state. The form In which the mash Is given determines tho manner of feeding It, nnd to some extent the method of feeding the hard grnln. A moist mash Is usunlly given ns ono of two or more regular meals, nnd In such quantity that It Is nil consumed within n short time. Tnble scraps With enough ground feed to nbsorh nny ex cess of moisture make a good moist mash. A dry mnsh Is usunlly fed In n hopper from which the birds enn cnt nt will nt nil times or nt least, for sev eral hours dally. The dry mash method Is moRt con venient for poultry keepers who nre nway from home nil day, and In short winter days ennnot nttend to their hens by daylight. With nn ample sup ply of dry mash In a hopper, n day's allowance of hard g'rnln In tho litter of straw or other light mnterlal cov ering the floor of the coop, a piece of cnbbnge or of mnngel wurzel whero the hens can cat what they want of It, fresh water, nnd supplies of oyster shell nnd grit In small hoppers, pro vision hns been mndo for all needs of the hens, nnd they will lay well, though not, perhaps, quite as many eggs as when hand-fed two or three times dolly. Recipe for Dry Mash. A good recipe for n dry mash Is: Equal parts by weight, comment, ground oats, wheat bran, and beef scraps. A good. moist mash may be made of tho same meal Ingredients with only one-third tho amount of beef scraps, because a larger propor tion of concentrated animal feed In n moist mnsh may cause bowel troubles. With such a dry mash about a pint of hard grain mixture (two parts cracked corn, one part oats by weight) to ten birds Is required. With a moist mash ns described above n pint and a half of the grain mixture will be re quired. If tlie moist mash Is fed In the morning, nnd the hard grain given In two feeds, the first consisting of about one-third of the day's allowance may bo given either nt the time of feeding the mnsh or toward noon, and the remainder long enough before dark to let the hens eat all they want be fore going to roost Hlgh-Prleed Feed. Many of tho3e thinking of engaging In poultry keeping nre deterred by tho high price of feed. As they cannot figure a profit on poultry raised on grain costing around $5 a hundred pounds, they conclude that as long ns such prices last poultry cannot be raised at n profit. That Is true In re gard to many cases where n profit could be made with feed at lower prices, but In many more cases poultry will pay even If feed prices should go much higher than now. Most of the poultry produced In the United States comes from general farms where the birds live largely on wastes that would not be used nt all If the poultry did not eat them. As long as a farmer does not feed nny con siderable quantity of snlable grain to his poultry the prices of feed do not directly affect his profits from poultry. Indirectly, high prices of feed tend ing to curtnll production among those who buy most of their poultry feed benefit the fnrmer by raising prices of poultry nnd eggs In tho general markets. When feed prices arc high small buck yard flocks can usually be kept nt n profit by feeding as much waste as can he obtained, striving for the best possible egg production, and sell ing eggs direct to the trade that pnys tho best price. The saine methods mny also enable a specialist In market egg production with a large flock to keep his plant running when with less efficient methods ho would be forced to .Iscontlnuc. Growers of stnndard-brcd poultry for breeding nnd exhibition purposes can usually operate no matter how high the prices of feed mny go. If their profits nre much lower thnn normal un der such conditions, they know that eventually ell her prices of feed will come down or prices on high-class stock nnd eggs will go up, nnd In the long run their profits under different condl tlons will be equalized. TOO MUCH SALT HARMFUL. A typical example of acciden tal poisoning by snlt has been described by a correspondent of the bureau of nnlmal Industry In a letter reading as follows: "A cake wns made at home and by mistake salt was used Instead of sugar. We fed the cake to a pen of nine pullets eight months old. The next morning they were nil found dend. Will you please he kind enough to let me know what you think of It? Will too much salt kill chickens!" Fowls nro very susceptible to poisoning by common salt, ns one-fifteenth of an ounco of salt per pound of live weight Is suffi cient to kill. It Is very danger ous to nllow fowls access to pickle brine of any sort, particu larly that used for salt fish. iifirniiiiiiHiiiiiiinn- Wcitern Nemppr Union Newi Strtlce.
