No matter how successful keeper become with poultry, they are trying at all time to find how they may In crease their profit. To Increase their profit means to Increase egg produc tion. Poultrymen are now debating whether a hen or a pullet is capable of the greatest egg production. There I good argument on both side. Some claim that while hen lay lea than pallets, they lay larger and heavier eggs and because of the fact the egg command a better price than those laid by pullets. This is true, bat In many sections of the United. States, eggs are sold without grading and consequently the small egg Is able to command as good a price aa the larger ones. Others are In favor of pallets because they lay egg which are claimed to poaaeas a better flavor Prize Winning Plymouth Rock. than those laid by hen. No one disputes the fact that the pallet lay more eggs than hena, but their egg are never so large. Leghorn pullets commence to lay when about six n nth of age, while many of them start at five mottha. Therefore, It Is a very easy matter to raise pullets so that they will be lay ing the winter after they are hatched. Pallet eggr. ao not hatch as well aa those of htns. Not only that, but the chicks do not seem nearly so strong and lively aa those hatched from hen's eggs. For this reason, the writer would advise pullet for market eggs r.ud hens for breeders. The question of which is the better, depends upon whether you are ualng your eggs for market or for breeding purpose. Bet ter Farming.
