HINTS FOR BREEDERS. [Newspaper Article] — Leader — 17 January 1914
HINTS FOR BREEDERS. Linseed assists the m'oult. Rise early and feed early. The heavy breeds are big eaters. Wheat is the standard grain for fowls. Old mortar should be kept in the fowl run. .en arll hens do not make satisfactory sit ters. YEconomy should be studied in the poultry Syard. Cleanliness must be observed in .tJhe fowl house. An egg is one of the most nutritious of foods. Mlilk chickens are ready for killing at U to 8 weeks. Spatch-cock is a young chicken, say from 3 to 4 months old. Choleira is brought on by impure food and tainted ground. Ventilation and pure air are necessities ii the poultry house. Duck breeding pays; ducklings are ready to market at nine weeks. Spray the poultry house occasionally with a stronig disinfectant. -Straw from the stalble mnakes good scrtdhing material for fowls. This is the period when all poultry runs should be dug up and freshened.
