KaU4aa. . rOT,ax4,0ea FORTUNES INVESTED IN FANCY POULTRY (Continued from Page 5) other breeder in the country. He journeyed on to New York with his choicest specimens and swept the field. One mi'lit assume from this that fancy poultry breeding means easy money. Wrong, very wrong! The conspicuous successes Hash out from a fog bank of unfortunate failures. If poultry fanciers may bo classed with poets, it may be fcaid that they, too, are born and not made. In addition to an infinite capacity for detail, one must have the knack of mating birds so as to get the right kind i of offspring, the kind that wins, j Whether he has this knack or not, nobody can tell until he tries. Many people are astonished to learn that a hen or u cock must bo fitted and trained for its appearance at a show, just as a thoroughbred stallion must be groomed and trained before it is allowed to prance on the sawdust. Weeks of preparation are often necessary. In the caso of light-colored birds, a thorough washing must be given and all birds i must bo taught to pose quietly. , The washing process in itself is not a , simple matter, especially when there is , a long string of birds to be tubbed; for . the operation can hardly bo concluded in ' less than fifteen or twenty minutes for each specimen. First, the victim is soaked in water and thoroughly rubbed over with soap. Some breeders use a soap solution, while , others hold a cake of good white soap in tho hand. The method does not mat- f ter, so long as the bird is thoroughly lathered from comb to toe. When tho fowls are gentle nnd not too heavy, one man may work alone, but it is a better plan to havo an assistant to hold tho protesting creatures. Some birds seem determined to get their heads under water nnd keep them there, as if they ! preferred slow suicide to the ignominy to which they nre being subjected. Two or threo times tho fowl is soaped and rinsed, the Inthcr being worked into the feathers until it reaches tho skin. Often tho legs nnd comb aro gono over with a tooth brush and thoroughly scrubbed. Special attention is always paid the head, to which the judge is cer tain to give careful observation. When the operator considers that tho bird has been soused and soaped a sufficient number of times, it is taken to the second tub and repeatedly ducked in order to rinse out every particle of soap. This is very important, ns otherwise, tho feathers will stick together and not lay in plnco well. Finally, the candidate is dipped into the bluing water and placed in a cage to dry. Tho bluing wuter must not bo too bluo nnd tho material used must be of good quality, elso tho bird 's feathers will acquiro a tint not recognized by tho Btnnuaru 01 reriection. Special training for n show consists in placing tho bird in a cngo and keeping him thero several weeks, talking to him frequently and often carrying him a choice morsel from the family table, so that ho will step expectantly to tho front of tho cngo when any one approaches, thus assuming an nttitudo that is calcu lated to make n favorable impression. Judging is dono in two ways, by com parison nnd by score card. The first method usually is followed at tho Fall shows, when tho birds are likely to bo rather ragged as a result of molting, while the score card is moro generally used at the mid-winter shows. Tho judges begin their work ns soon ns a show is opened nnd aro "speeded up" by tho breeders, becauso thero is certain to be a harvest of shekels for tho winners. When tho awards have been mnde, tho bargaining begins. Then it is that tho wealthy fancier, carried away by tho enthusiasm of tho moment, goes down into his jenns and pulls out a big wad of bills to pay the price of a winning cock. With this bird in his yard, ho hopes to raise stock which will, in its turn, command the favor of the judge. Thousands of dollars change hands and innumerable orders for eggs for hatching j at from five to twenty-fivo dollars for j fifteen are placed.
