By H. H. AI.P. Poultry Extension Spe cialist. College of Agriculture, Uni versity of Illinois. —WNU Service. Twenty-four questions and an swers cover most of the stumbling blocks which Illinois farmers will have to clear in the successful brooding and feeding of chicks this spring. Samples of the questions and an swers placed In the hands of all county farm advisers are: Q. What are the essential re quirements for successful rearing of chicks? A. Healthy, vigorous chicks in a clean ventilated house on a clean range, not overcrowded, good feed, plenty of feeder space and the lib j eral use of good common sense. Q. How much floor space should a chick have? A. There should be at least one I square foot of floor space for every three chicks. Q. What should the room tem perature of the brooder house he? A. Generally the room tempera ture of the brooder Itouse will vary ; somewhat with the age of the chicks. For the brooder stove method of brooding there should be j little reason for the room tempera ture to be higher than 75 to 80 de grees. Too many brooder houses are kept too hot. Hover tempera ture recommendations do not mean room temperatures. Q. When should chicks receive their first feeding? A. As soon as they are put in the brooder house. Long delayed i feeding is likely to be followed by ’ bad results. ( Q. What are the most common mistakes made by the flock owner In rearing chicks? A. Not providing enough hopper | space, keeping the brooder house too hot and losing interest after the | chicks are six weeks old. ■■■ Coat Sheet Shows Egg Profits in Year 1932 Every poultry flock owner keep ing cost records for the poultry ex tension office at North Carolina State college during the year 1932 made a proilt above feed cost of $1.27 a bird, according to figures ! submitted by the owners and recent ly tabulated by C. .1. Maupin, poul try specialist. There were 214 flock owners who kept these records through the year and made a careful report month by month of the results being se cured. The average for each month shows 40,358 birds from which rec ords were secured. This was an average of 188 hirds for each farm for each month. In October, the number of birds per farm reached 233 and the lowest was in August when records were received from 137 birds per farm. This indicates that some careful culling was done and that the average farm flock had been reduced more than 40 per cent in the first eleven months of the year. The gross income from the eggs received from the flocks reported upon amounted to $102,281.20 or $477.94 a farm. The gross value of eggs for each bird was $2.53. The average price received for eggs was i 19.9 cents a dozen and the average feed cost for each dozen eggs was \ about 10 cents. Add Linseed Meal Five per cent of linseed meal added to the mash is useful in pro | moting ttie growth of feathers and in adding luster to the plumage of fowls. More direct results can be obtained by preparing a linseed Jelly. Just ordinary linseed—not the meal —is allowed to simmer slowly until it ‘‘jells.” Given in wet mash in small quantities, it benefits growing chickens or adults. The treatment should not he over done since it may he the cause of crop trouble, it is claimed. Many Like Turkey-Growing When the revival of interest in I turkey growing began shortly after the war, authorities on poultry agreed that it was a passing fad— a rich man’s game. So far events have discredited their judgment. Rich men who took it up have not tired of it as was expected, and their success encourages others to grow turkeys. Turkey growers gen | erally find a certain fascination about the birds —in many ways so different from other poultry.—Bos ton Herald. Combating Poultry Diseases The best way to combat poultry diseases, asserts an authority, is to prevent their occurrence. Cleanli ness Is one of the best preventives. Place new litter in the poultry house as often as practical. Screen the droppings and remove them as often as possible. Water fountains should be cleaned dally and disin fected at least once a week. Keep the most material clean. With these precautions many of the common diseases will be easily prevented.
