COLONY HOUSES FOR P0ULTR WHAT EVERY GARDEN NEEDS Especially Handy on Leased Land. J. W. KELLER. After he brooder, before the lnylng houe, what then? The colony house Is the answer. Chicks are generally ready to leave the brooder at about six weeks of age that i. when fullj feathered They are then able to take care of themselves .during tho day time, and, except on cold, rainy days, the question of artificial heat is not vital. There are several types of colony house, but all should have the follow lus; fentnrcs: Perfectly dry, freedom from drafts, well ventilated, easy to clenn and move (this latter should be done every H'hwid, and, lastly, thej bhould be attractive, but Inexpensive. Don't crowd the chicks In the colony house, ltemember, they will be nl mot grown liefore they are moved again. Have porches removable, ami do not allow the chirks to roost until their bones have hardened up consider ably, or they may have crooked breast bones. When roosts are given, have them at least two Inches wide. Can Be Mad or Bought. For small Hooks suitable colony houxes may be made from large store boxes by covering tho top and three sides with tar paper, the other hide being made of cellar window wire ex tending six Inches down from the top. which should ordinarily bo left uncov ered, but there should bo n curtain to drop over It in bad weather. The bal ance of the side should be hinged so It can be thrown open during the day. admitting sunshine nnd fresh air. The "A" hhnped colony houo Is qulto a favorite, as It combines roof nnd two sides In one piece. It bus also tho added virtue of being cheap, but Is not ho easily cleaned ns somo of the others. Most colony houes nvorago about 0 by 8 feet In size, with shed roof and a large wire covered window with cur tain In front. This type should be built on t-klds, so that they can be easily dragged to new ground with the aid of a horse, and, If tightly built, houses of this sort can bo used for lay ers nnd nlso breeders In the winter by the addition of nots, hoppers, etc. A word nbout plnclng tho house. Choose well drained ground that is covered with a heavy, sweet sod. An old orchard Is nlmost Ideal, as the trees furnUh shade during the hot summer days. Clean nway any brush piles or thickets which might harbor vermin, nnd If the same ground must be ued jear nfter year lime it. plow it down each fall nnd sow with somo suitable crop which will afford green pasture for the growing birds.
