THE POULTRY YARD. WHICH PAY BETTERT Do ducks pay better than hensf If a question asked In "The Jamaica Agri cultural Journal." That the hen can be kept a year with less labor than a duck necessitates, and consumes less food, is well known; but the duck ha3 tin advantage over the ,lion, .which Places her far in the lead, and that U the rapid growth of the ducklings.

GOOD LAYING STOCK. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914

GOOD LAYING STOCK. To breed a flock of heavy layers the most important point ia to WUve the foundation stock vigorous, healthy and of strong vitality, and to maintain and increase these qualities. This is more important than all else. It is the foundation on which we have to build, and without this one quality of vigor we have nothing. With it we have everything else except the laying trait, and that can be bred into the iloclc. We have eggs that hatch, chicks that live, and pullets that aro capable of making heavy layers, if we can get the laying habit bred into them, and it is much easier to breed weakly and anaemic birds. A profu sion of rich, warm blood carries heat for the development of the egg-pro ducing organs, nnd we have then to select the best layers and sexually strong males to produce a prolific . race. To -keep fowls vigorous they must be in the open air as much as possible. Pullets that have been improperly grown can never become good layers, no matter how well they a...

THE VALUE OF RECORDS. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914

THE VALUE OF RECORDS. Within recout years fanners have come to recognise the need of* con ducting ail of their operations in a business-like way, and it is pleasing to note that poultry-raising is no long er excepted. Some five or-six years ago some inquiries as to what should he considered a good year's work for' the average farm hen led to the dis cussion of the matter of keeping poul try records. This brought out the fact that it is a comparatively easy mat ter to keep track of what the flock is doing throughout the entire year, and since that time we have had a good many flock records for publication. It is unnecessary to say that poultry farmers generally recognise that there is value as well as satisfaction to be derived from a knowledge of w! ;t the flock is doing from month iO month. Prom such a record they are able tc figure out just what the hens aver age; whether they are paying for feed and care or not, and no little interest in the proposition , is deevlopcd through the...

FEEDING HENS MEAT. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914

FEEDING HENS MEAT. Lean meat, or its equivalent in an Insect life, is one of the essentials in egg production. If meat in some form were supplied -daily, there vfould be sufficient eggs secured over and above the number that would be obtained without the use of meat, nut only to pay for the meat, but to increase the profits. It is the most available food product that has yet been discovered to supply fowls the elements most difficult to get from grain and most needed to make bono, muscle, and feathers, to malce eggs, to .support health and vitality. It tones up the Bystem. It makes eggs .more fertile, develops earlier broilers and layers, makes red combs and gloss plumago, and enhances the proflts.

Moving Lambing Ewes. [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 12 June 1914

Moving Lambing Ewes. Some sensible remarks on tho care necessary when lambing ewes have to bo moved any distance were recently published by iMrV G Duwling, one of tlie Nev South Wales Block inspectors, in the Forbes Gazette. If cues about to lamb and lambing have by compul sion to be travellej thoy must, Mr J.'owling points out, bo shepberdecl along nnd not driven. That is, in the first case they are allowed to draw along at their own sweet will, and in the lutter * they are hunted along. Do^s should not be seen among ewes in forward lambing condition, nor for a month afterwords. A ewe on the point of lambing should not bo niuvid at all the day before or the day after lambing. When tho lamb is two days' old, three miles a day will be found ample, nnd not till a lamb is uine days old is it capable of doing six miles a day, If ib has any distance over 20 miles to travel, four miles r. riiiy is enough, and then if theie is feed and water sufficient to keep the dam n-nlthy and strong.
