"Know your brscd" is the motto that should bhe i4zscribed over .-all: of them. I.:--it should also be understood ,that' there is a "laying" type, and some breeds conform more closely to it thani 'others; 'notably, a typical White Log. horn. However, some characteristics 'are common to all good layers, and the p'oints for judging a fowl for its laying qualities which can be recognised at sight, may be sumnmarised as follows: 1.-Pullets to be selected should be in good health and condition, and not under six months old. 2.--Start at the head-this is un doubtedly the best index; the head of a layer of whatever breed should indi cate activity and alertness, by what may be described as a lean expression ...
