By Prof. H. R. Lewis 

You must read it to appreciate and aipree you will, thi 
it is timely and this article, if you please, is away out « 
the ordinary as covering a like subject. No man in Americ 
has had greater practical experience than Harry Lewia-^ 
real poultrynian and who writes from that same practici 
experience for the benefit of all. < 


By Mrs. Helen Dow Whitaker 

We introduce to Everybodys* family with the February 
issue, Mrs. Helen Dow Whitaker, of Palouse, Wlash. Thit 
introduction is not of a new writer, but rather a new ou 
for Everybodys. Mrs. Whitaker. in the writer's opinion, h 
one of the leaders in poultry culture today; a remarkabh 
woman in many respects. When we icained her consent U 
prepare a series of articles for you, we felt quite gratified, 
in fact, this acceptance of consignment came on Ohristmii 
Day. Her articles following February will be: March 
"Bringing Off the Lucky Hatch;" April. "Brooder Can 
and R^tioninff." You are going to enjoy them all. Wei 
come Mrs. Wnitaker to Everybodys' family. 

By T. F. McGrew 

Almost every mail brings letters in appreciation of Mr 
MeOrew's fine series appearing monthlv. You sure will 
enjoy the February feature (profusely illustrated by Stab- 
mer), chuck full of the things loved by every fancier. One 
reader today writes: "MeOrew's article* are worth dollart 
to me every month." Another says: "You sure mix up 
the fancy and commercial finely in Everybodys. I am in- 
terested in both, you cannot go too strong to suit me." 


By Harold F. Barber 

This man Barber sleeps as well as lives in a "chicken" 
atmosphere—* student of every phase of successful, profit- 
able poultry keeping. In fact, believes that the American 
hen can show a profit, via the by-product route and best 
of all he is right. Mr. Barber will discuss the preeervatioo 
of one of these by-products in the February story and it's i 
good one. take it from us. . 



By D. E. Hale t j 

Here is a good subject and the article meets this import 
ant matter squarely. Every one who is preparing to run off 
hatches during the next few months will profit Dy it. Mr. 
Hale, with his sound advice, has helped many and will con- 
tinue to do so. Feel at liberty to ask for this advice st 
anr time. 

We must stop here, space prevents our mentioning hsU 
the February features. We have given you but a few. 
"The Housewife and a Few Hens," by OoUier; "Experi- 
ment Stations," by Lewis; "The Casserole," by Barber, 
are a sample of what has been left out above. Yes. of 
course, it will be a "Wonder" number— every page.

Those critical first 8 weeks—that's 
when your little chicks must have a 
genuine and scientific feed. 

Conkey's (the original) Buttermilk 
Starting Feed prevents the big losses 
due to weakness and disease and gives 
your chicks the quick, snappy geta- 
way that produces early broilers and 
layers. The lactic acid in the butter- 
milk puts an edge to the appetite; 
strengthens and tones up the sensi- 
tive digestive organs of the little 
chicks, and helps to sweep away the 
germs that cause White Diarrhea. 

Semi-Solid Bnttermillc 
No Dried Bnttermillt 

In the manufacture of Conkey's But- 
termilk Starting Feed, we use Semi- 
Solid Buttermilk only. Semi-Solid But- 
termilk incorporates thoroughly with 
grain. Conkey 's is the only Buttermilk 
Feed for chicks made according to the 

Original and successful Conkey process. 

Low in Fibre 
Just Right In Protein 

Conkey's is low in fibre— just right in protein. 
Too much fibre injures and too much protein 
overtaxes. Conkey has made a study of the 
little chick for years, and in Conkey's Butter- 
milk Starting Feed has perfected the really 
successful feed for little chicks from 48 hours 
to 8 weeks of age. 

Early Pullets 

It's Easy When Properly Started 

The first 8 wec*ks is the period during which 
the vigor and maturity of the fowl is deter- 
mined. Properly started, instead of retarded, and 
you can have 3pound pullets at 12 weeks of age. 

Be Sore to Get Conkey's 

in the original packages— 2^,5, 10,25 and 
100 lb. packages. Don't accept a substitute 
— it's dangerous. (ijg)

IMPROVEMENT in production may 
come through better housing, better 
feeding, greater attention to sanita- 
tion and disease prevention, but hinda- 
mentally and back of it all must be the 
basic improvement which comes 
through close selection and more care- 
ful mating and breeding for egg pro- 
duction. Egg production is an mhcri- 
ted trait like all other characters, and it 
can best be reproduced in succeeding 
generations through close line breeding.

|i ^thout^any break in their cycle of production. The 

only accurate way to select these birds, which are to be 
used as the basis of breeding for egg production, is the 
trapnest, and it is probably the fact that no one can in- 
telligently and with assurance breed for egg production, 
unless he uses the trapnest, even if n but a small way. 
If one does not have the time or one's program of work 
is so arranged that he cannot operate the trapnests him- 
self at the home farm, he can enter a number of pens m 
egg laying contests in his and adjoining states, and have 
thf benefit of official trapnest records being made for 
him by his state poultry authorities Such .records^U 
^ have added weight m that their 

entire accuracy and authenti- 
city is never doubted. 

A Word of Caution 
While we have established 
the principle to start with that 
there are two things funda- 
mental in beginning to breed 
for egg production. First, hens 
which themselves have made 
high egg production records, 
and secondly, these records 
must have been exact records 
made under the trapnest. Let 
us not proceed without one 
word of caution as to the im- 
porUnce of considering physi- 
cal vigor and vitality along 

with actual production records. 

So often it is that a breeder 
has before him two hens, we will say for example one 
that has laid 250 eggs in a year. She is thm out of con 
dition, the strain of production has worn her out^nd 
she is not in fit breeding condition, or even in fit cond^; 
tion to go on and lay in succeeding years, a profitable 
yie?d She has laid herself out, so to speak in one year s 
Production. On the other hand, he has a hen which has 
faTd 200 eggs Yn a year, but which is a picture of physical 
health and vitality and stamina, which is in the pink of 
Sion as to fleeing and which is. in A-l breeding con^ 
dition Which of these two birds is the best to Uoe in 
breeding for future heavy layers? It is certamly not 
the one which has necessarily laid the most eggs, be- 
cause this hen which has laid 250 eggs in a year, would 



i, 1924 

produce hatching eggs first of all, which would be low 
in fertility; secondly, eggs which would hatch poorly, 
and lastly, chick-i would be produced from those eggs, 
which in all probability, due to the low vitality and weak- 
ened condition of the mother would not grow well and 
would be subject to an excessive mortality, a condition 
which would react all along the line, to the extent that 
even those pullets which might be grown to maturity 
from this extremely heavy producing hen, would, in all 
probability, never be physically capable of maintaining 
themselves in good condition of flesh and in consuming 
and assimilating food enough to attain a maximum eg^ 
yield. This is often the case, and explains why in so 
many instance:?, daughters from extremely heavy pro- 
ducing hens, have not fulfilled the expectations of their 
owner. In this result, there is nothing contrary to the 
fact that high egg production is inherited. It simply in- 
tensifies and bears out the fact that characters are in- 
herited in groups, that any inherited character, to be 
capable of full development in a succeeding generation, 
must be associat- 
ed with the inheri- — — — 

tance of charact- 
ers which denote 
vigor, vitality and 
stamina, without 
which no indi- 
vidual can grow 
and develop its 
other inherited 
traits to its full- 
est extent. So 
then let us lay 
down as a funda- 
mental rule in 
breeding for high 
egg production, 
this fact; that 
we will never 
breed from a hen, 
no matter how 
many eggs she 
has laid the pre- 
vious season or 
in her pullet 
year, if she her- 
self has not stood 
up under the 
strain of heavy 
production, and 
if, in addition, 
she ha*! not been 
able to maintain 
herself in perfect

practice it, much of the unsatisfactory and discouraging 
results which come from breeding for egg production, 
will be avoideci. 

The Selection of the Mal« 
Having selected a group of females which have proven 
themselves capable of heavy production, and which, in 
addition, have stood up under the strain of heavy laying, 
the next problem is to find one or more male birds to be 
used as our foundation stock. Two methods are open. 
One is to purchase a pedigree breeding male from a reli- 
able poultry breeder, a male bird which for a number of 
years has been bred from heavy producing dams, and 
which has been line bred for heavy egg production. The 
probability is that the use of such a male would tend to 
fix the traits which he possesses, very firmly upon his 
progeny, both male and female alike. This is probably 
the best procedure to follow in making the initial start. 
There is, on the other hand, always the probability that 
there exists in one's own flock, perfectly good male birds 
with high egg producing qualities behind them. The prob- 
lem is how to pick them out. The only means one has 
available is to pipk the male birds out on the basis of ex- 

es selected can will give them a good 

factors for high egg production, and then by pic start in the poultry 

bird, and following linebreeding, the future satie and some of them 

results will be almost certain. But before we fltit, if all the fates are 

choice of the males, we must appreciate the faaem. 

takes time to get started in a breeding prograt of these people think 

kind, and that it is always better the first y4 the eggs they buy will 

making the initial start, to make matings involnd that all the chicks will grow into prize winners 

use of at least two or three males, so that the i€y believe, equally as implicitly, that every chicK 

when the daughters from these matings are tmtches will live. 

in all probability one male bird will stand out ane are the confirmed optimists but they ere gener- 

to the rest, in that he will produce a greater me worst losers and their cries for what they believe 

heavy laying daughters. The more male birds to be fair treatment have caused many breeders to 

can use consistent with efficiency and accuractinue the sale of eggs for hatching. ,^-„«„c

expressman let them drop on the platform or left them 
outdoors when the temperature was below freezmg. 

Perhaps the hen was a very poor sitter or was not

broke a number ot eggs or quit altogether and another 
hen substituted after a considerable delay, or perhaps,

of allowing ''utility" or pro- 

duction-bred stock to be shown in the show room. Such 
breeding to them lacks dignity, and is a detriment to the 
poultry industry. Joseph Shakespeare is an Englishman 
of experience, with a good command of language. They 
have many ''Utility classes" in the English shows. Mr. 
Shakespeare does not like them. He deserves to be 
heard, as representing the production breeders. The 
language is too good to paraphrase, so let's do quite a 
bit of quoting this time. "The men who foisted on the 
public this double-barreled stunt of winning the blue 
and laying lots of eggs in the same bird, never won a 
laying competition with trapnested birds or any other 
birds; indeed few ever competed in a laying competition. 
The only infallible method of building up a laying strain, 
or ascertaining the laying abilities of individual birds, is 
by the trapnest. Must all the good work done by the 
trapping fraternity during the last quarter of a century 
be ruined to satisfy the whims of would-be exhibition- 
utilityites? It is not possi- 
ble to graft external exhibi- 
tion points onto egg produc- 
ing stock without infusing 
into such stock the blood of 
standard-bred birds. Then 
we put egg production on 
the down grade; we begin 
to satisfy the eye at the ex- 
pense of the stomach. 
Those who would transform 
bred-to-lay stock into dou- 
ble-barreled utility and ex- 
hibition stock are a danger 
to the utility side of poultry 
culture. Keep exhibition 
and utility stock as far 
apart as possible. When it 
comes to prize winning, the 
right place for the bred-to- 
standard fowl is in the show 
pen, and the right place for 
the egg-producing fowl is in 
the laying competition. 
Those who originated the 
idea of exhibiting egg pro- 
ducing stock have never won 
the support of a single indi- 
vidual who operates on scientific lines, and by the aid of 
the trapnest. Unless something is done to stop the show- 
ing of utility birds, such stock will be evolved as will 
swamp the good, work of the scientific breeder and the 
operator of trapnests. The utility birds of the future 
will then be idle aristocrats in spotless overalls." Those 
may be strong words, but there is at least some measure 
of truth in them, and the language is no stronger than 
is frequently indulged in by our fancier friends. But 
really, isn't it strange that both your shape-and-feather 
fancier on the one side, and your trapnest production 
breeder on the other, should both be against showing 
egg-bred birds in so-called "Utility Classes?" Or isn't 
it strange? It is certainly a fact, that the trapnester 
and the fancier are very much against this thing, which 
apparently is so much favored by the small poultryman 
wh^»^oes neither win blue ribbons nor enter laying con- 
tests. Culling by physical characteristics has done a 
whole lot of good, and is doing some harm. It has its 
place, but not in the laying contest, nor the show 
room, (b)

it in a haphazard way, but h« 
has kept very definite pedigree 
trapnest records, and knows in 
an exact way, just the breeding 
back of all of the birds in these 
breeding experiments. He has 
been able to isolate in both of 
these varieties, individuals 
which were practically homo- 
zygous or pure for high egg 
production, with the result that 
when they are mated together, 
they give uniform daughters, , 
all of which produce heavily. 
The good work which Professor 
Martin is doing in this con- 
nection, should be continued 
and enlarged, and the fruits of 
his efforts made available to 
the Kentucky poultrymen

stock, baby chicks, pullets, etc. 
Already a sufficient surplus of breeding males are on 
hand, so that a few were available to poultrymen within 

the state. , 

Possibly more startling than anything else, was the 
results which Professor Martin has been securing from 
certain feeding experiments which he has been conduct- 
ing over a period of years. Professor Martin, like all re- 
search men, is rather slow to draw conclusions feeling 
that the problem must be approached from all angles, 
with sufficient evidence at hand to warrant a conclusion 
before same is drawn. When we explored the poultry 
farm, I say "we" meaning the four or five hundred Ken- 
tucky poultrymen more or less, we were supplied with a 
sheet showing the various rations fed in the feeding test 
pens, together with the average production of thej)irds 
for the eleven months, beginning November 1 1922 and 
ending October 1, 1923. The sheet also showed the 
average weight of the birds in Jw pen. These tests were 
of two types. First, the comparison of meat scrap as a 
source of protein in contrast to milk products as a source 
of protein. The test there seemed to show quite con- 
clusively, that meat was essential in the laying mash, 
that while milk could probably in P^^!? > ^i a

Tke Housewife and a Few Hens 

By H. H. (X)LLIER, Associate Editor 

Riary, 1924 


Tke Poultry Primer 


ANUARY, 1924, will open up one of the most 
prosperous years that poultrymen ever saw. 
The whole nation is eating more eggs and con- 
suming more fowls than ever in the history of 
America. We are just on the boom title that 
comes with prices along every other line. The 
women of America realize that one of the most health- 
ful foods is poultry and eggs and if we will press that 
fact home, 1924 will be the year of all years in the 
poultry industry. 

Senator Wesley L. Jones, of the State of Washington, 
has promised a census of fowls for the poultrymen. This 
is something that the poultrymen never had as a whole. 
Only certain farms were reported and no effort was ever 
made to get at what poultry was produced in the average 
backyard. With this census the United States will be 
^ble to tell the world what her poultrymen are doing. 
The new year will bring 


HIS season of the year 
reminds us that there 
are many fireside 
conversations c o n- 
cerning the advisa- 
of entering into the 


many new pledges on the 
part of each and every 
housewife. She will make 
up her mind that in 1924 
she will run her family ex- 
penses for less than she 
has in former years, she 
will be hunting ways and 
means that will enable her 
to reduce expenses and not 
entail a hardship on her 
family when it comes to 
the table. She will promise 
herself that she will raise 
more fowls, produce more 
eggs and, if possible, raise 
enough extra of both eggs 
and poultry to buy the 
little things that go to 
make a good table for the 
family and not be an added 

Two dozen good fowls 
in the backyard will bring 
greater returns than the 
same amount of land used 
in any other calling. The 
housewife that once real- 
izes what poultry will pro- 
duce, will not only help 

her family financially but will help her health that will 
go a long ways towards cutting down one source of outgo 
that could be stopped, that is tiie doctor's bills and better 
still she will be able to make enough extra on her fowls 
to pay the doctor bills that families often make but often- 
times never pay. 

Fowls will pay from every standpoint. First they will 
give the eggs so necessary in cooking, second they will 
give the fowls that go to save the big meat bill, third 
they will give droppings that when used for lawn dress- 
ing intelligently, makes the greenest grass one can grow. 
. These droppings can also double the yield from the 
kitchen garden when used properly. 

The outdoor exercise that the family gets in looking 
after the hens will put that girlish complexion in the 
cheeks of the average housewife that no drug store can 
equal. The school girl complexion so much advertised 
does not always come from drug stores or the use of 
soaps but it is put there by Old Mother Nature, the best 
cosmetic manufacturer that mankind ever had. 

Cleanliness is next to Godliness, is a famous saying 
but cleanliness that does not bring one in contact with 
Mother Nature's earth, will not bring the health that is 
combined with lots of sunshine, good air, good earth and

Twenty-four finds the American dollar

prosperous year the United States ever saw. 

Every calling looks forward to being 
more than busy. The cities find a shortage

direction are promised.

Broken Colored Plumage 

[E first fowl, perhaps, 

of any known to have 

plumage of a broken 

color was the original 

Hamburg. They were 
known as the "Galina Tur- 
cica" or Turkish fowl. Whether 
they came from the Far East 
or not will never be known. 
Fowls of this kind have been 
written of by so many names 
as to be confusing. The name 
that seems to fit them best 
was "Penciled Dutch." This 
was one of their names in 
Holland. They have been 
known as Br&ckel and the 
Campine in Belgium — then 
the Hamburg. 

Fowl of this type have been 
bred with both single combs and rose combs. They have 
been bred with tufts of feathers on their heads. Such 
fowls were called Pheasant Fowls. Fowls of this type 
and color have been broadcasted through the world. The 
Spangled Hamburg was made in England. So were all 
of the many kinds and color of Hamburgs made or per- 
fected in England. The White Hamburg, like the White 
Dorking, all or both of them have the double or rose 
comb that belongs to the Hamburg family. 
The original Silver Gray Dorking, as we 
saw them, had combs like the Hamburgs. 
Some of this type^were shown at Boston 
as a new breed. They "were -very attractive, 
but not new, only a re-appearance of some 
of the original. The rose combs are very 
old for poultry. 

Early writers say that the Dorking was 
of many varieties. One writer mentions 
fourteen varieties. All writers claim that 
there was a Speckled and a Spangled va- 
riety color. Another feature in which we 
are interested is that fowls with this color 
type were plentiful in Southern Italy. 
This points to the Ancona. The facts are 
that wherever there are pure white fowls 
and pure black ones, you are apt to find barred plumage, 
blue or slate colored plumage and broken colored plu- 
mage, also spangled plumage. I have read a statement, 
not authentic, that they did have in Italy both black fowls 
and fowls with broken plumage, some of which had rose 
combs. Belgium did have two breeds that had color and 
markings like the Ancona. There was one or more of 
this type in Holland. 

This should satisfy us all that broken colored black 
and white plumage is as old as poultry itself, so are the 
four kinds of combs — single, rose, triple, like the Brahma, 
and the antler 
comb, like we 
■hould have on the 
Houdan and the 
La Fleche. This 
fowl did have a 
crest in early days. 
When you hear 
people say: "I, or 
we, made that 
comb or plumage/' 
you may as well 
make up your 
mind that they 
really mean that 
they have improved 
or changed the 

To some of us solid colored plumage is 
the only real color. Others prefer one kind, 
some another, but all of us can unite on 
one common ground and that is of whatever 
color have it the best that can be. There is 
entirely too much of a tendency for, let it 
go, if it wins all right. The breeder who 
has not seen the winner will never know. 
The one road to sure and continued success 
is along the line of better and better all the 
time. It will not suffice that you win the 
blue. Remember, no matter whether the 
specimen wins the blue or not, if not better 
than ninety per cent perfect, the specimen 
is unworthy the reward.

from the Ancona. I have explained the Exchequers

in this, tell them in the plain-

Anotker Business Man Wants a Poultry Farn 


ry, 1924 

INOTHER of our many 
subscribers is wonder- 
ing if it would pay 
him to start in the 
poultry business. 
Deep down somewhere in 
every man who has had to 
make his living in a town or 
•city lies that same feeling. A 
piece of ground, a comfort- 
able home, school for the chil- 
dren and a living. What we have said to others along 
this line would apply to this man, who writes as follows: 
Gentlemen: Ohio, October, 1923 

I would like a little advice, please. I have had it in my 
head for about a year to go to New Jersey and get into 
the commercial poultry business. Do you think New 
Jersey is a good state in which to locate? So many peo- 
ple try to discourage me and tell me to stay in Ohio where 
I belong. I rm in love with poultry and have always 
kept a few fowls, mostly Bantams. Have not had the 
time to care for them as I would like, but am in the gro- 
cery business and open up at 6 a. m., and close at 6 p. m. 
I have to be on the job all the time or business does not 
go right. This inside work is getting the best of me. 

Do you think one man can handle from one to two 
thousand head of fowls and make a success of it? What 
do you think of the Black Minorca as an egg fowl? 
Would you prefer the American or English strain White 

I am not afraid to work and would have about $6,500 
to start on. I do not know much about the commercial 
game. Would you take a course with some good poultry 
school? Which would you suggest? 

I see farms of five and ten acres advertised around 
Vineland, Egg Harbor City, Peasentville and Hammon- 
ton. N. J. 

About feeding, would it be all right to use some good 
mash and scratch feed such as is advertised in Every- 

I have two little tots to be educated, one is fourteen 
months, the other three years, so I would want to locate 
some place where they can have all the educational ad- 
vantages possible. 

Very truly yours, 
T. 0. M. 

While New Jersey is a good poultry raising state there 
may be advantages in Ohio that you would not have there. 
In Ohio you are among friends and on a soil that is dif- 
ferent from New Jersey. You are also nearer the grain 
production centers and feed no doubt would cost less 
than in the far east. If you are within 30 to 36 hours 
of New York or Philadelphia you ought to be able to ship 
at a good profit from Ohio. 

On the other hand you could get land much cheaper in 
New Jersey than in Ohio, but it is a soil of a different 
nature, being more sandy. If locating in New Jersey for 
a commercial egg farm we believe there are advantages 
in locating in a community where egg production is a 
business and where they have local associations that 
would be of help to you both in giving good advice and 
in marketing. If you are going to play a lone hand and 
ship when and where you please without regard to the 
egg producers' associations you could probably do just 
as well in Ohio as in New Jersey. 

Frankly, we think it would be a good investment for 
•you to take a trip down east and look New Jersey over. 
Visit the commercial egg farms and ask questions. Talk 
with the managers of the New Jersey Egg Producers' 
Association and see what they think of New Jersey as a 
production state. It would be money well spent to make 
such a trip before you decide on locating there. There 
are some very fine locations down there and it might be 
that they would be just what you want. 

We know something about the hard work connected 
with running a grocery business. As you say it is early 
and late and one must make quick turnovers at a small 

If you ever worked twelve or fourteen 
hours a day in a grocery store— and if dur- 
ing all these hours, for many years you 
had a longing to be with your fowls, you 
will appreciate, somewhat the desires of 

this reader.

their own affair, and no harm to anyone. 
But a case was brought home to "^e a few months ago. 

This man. Swift, lives in a small Pennsylvania town. He 

raises Rocks and Wyandottes. He started some years 

ago a little farm and married life at the same time. They 

had no money, none. Borrowed some money to go with 

their nerve, and proceeded to work their ^jx acres into 

a really productive piece of ground, chiefly through fruit 

and poultry. We are not interested here in the ^r^i* P^^ 

of it— that belongs to Prof. Farley over m the back of 

the magazine. Well, the Swifts planned, and scliemef , 

and worked. They planned and worked so well that their 

plans gradually came true through their work. Every 

tree, every chicken house, every detail of their cosy 

cottkge came in the end to be just as they had planned 

them all. 

As for their chickens, let Swift tell his own story, be- 
use he does it so much better than I could. I had 
visions of building up a nice little poultry bu«;.ness a 
side help to the fruit. Always I had m mmd a breed mg 
plant. 'Twas my vision to breed and raise exhibition 
chickens, plus eggs. I had visions of going to the show 
and seeing my birds with the *blue' hanging on their 

cages. I had visions of seeing my 
name in the poultry press. I had 
visions of having my trapnested 
layers entered in a laying contest. 
And lastly, I had visions of selling 
stock and eggs at fair prices that 
would materially add to my income 
and pay for my hard up-hill work of 
the past 15 to 20 years. All these 
visions have come true except the 
last. For the amount of equipment 
I have; the knowledge and experi- 
ence I have ; the show records, trap- 
nest records, etc., I am not getting 
the return I should. For the amount 
of work I do yearly, the number of 
chicks I hatch and raise, the amount 
of money invested in my little plant, 
and the amount I have spent in ad-

Welcome 1924 

In the spirit of the times let us welcome and face 
the New Year with a smile and a cheer. 

Few of us, indeed none of us, has any real occa- 
sion to look forward with anything but hope. For- 
get the defeats of yesterday and the worries of the 
past. Enter upon the unseen expectant of good, re- 
solve to strive and to deserve well of fate. Build 
castles in the clouds, dream of the things you intend 
to do, but remember they are attained by patient 
labor, not by sudden flights. Handicaps need not 
count. Many of history's finest pages record the 
achievements of men whom nobody expected to 

Time is no longer than once it was. Lecky made 
that point when he showed how modern civiliza- 
tion has equipped men with such implements for the 
conquest of time as other ages did not possess. Men 
live longer, old age is more vigorous, inventions for 
economizing time are more numerous. The short- 
ness of life no one can deny, but there is less reason 
on that account for anything but hope and en- 
dbavor. TTie men end women who have made the 
most of themselves and who have done most for the 
race have been most consistent in their regard to 
the worth of time. Time is the measure of oppor- 
tunity, and what we make of opportunity depends 
upon ourselves. 

The New Year reminds us of some of these things. 
We know very well that we arc the same creatures 
today that we were yesterday, shaped and moulded 
by all that has gone before, but the first day of the 
year always brings a curious sense of wiping out the 
past and reaching forward to the future. It is well 
to have it so. 

None can foretell what 1924 has in store for 
them, but a good thought with which to start the 
New Year is that life is what we make it, and real 
happiness is a condition of the heart and mind. 

The start of a new year is always fascinating, 
becaure it opens the door of the unknown. The 
curtain rises on a new act of the eternal drama, life. 

Ahead, then, with vigor. Time is giving us a new 
deal with the cards. Forget mistakes of 1923 and 
begin afresh. 

For Everybodys 1923 has been a year of growth 
and progress and we trust of valuable service to our 
read.'rs. Our plans for 1924 are along the same lines 
that have stood for past results with ever more and 
more effort to improve and to enlarge so that its 
service may do the greatest good to the greatest 

We are grateful for past support and we are go- 
ing to try to merit more and more as time passes. 
To enlarge our circulation and thereby to increase 
our worth to the poultry industry is our one para- 
mount hope. 

To all its great family of readers Everybodys 
wishes a most Hsppy and Prosperous New Year. 

Breeding Then and Now

simplified by the notable lines and strains of the 
established breeders who have perfected them by

of the running. . • .1 «* «f 

The master reason, as we see it, is the want ot 
real breeders and real champions interested m the 
most forgotten varieties. Breeders who will breed 
and champion them, breeders who will prove their 
quality, exploit them and cultivate public opinion 
and ideas in their favor. They are not popular for 
the reason that the great majority of the public do 
not know their merit and there is no one to mtorm 
them. They are left to drift and soon are in still 
water to exist as best they can, in the hands ot a 
few rare and good fanciers who mean well, but — 

If you wish to know the popular varieties, read the 
poultry publications, note the advertisements, the 
articles, etc. Visit the poultry exhibits, note the 
classes, meet the breeders, see the efforts made and 
you will understand the difference between the 
favorites and the non-favorites and the cause tor 

same. 1 

The wide-awake breeder with advertising and 
exhibiting moulds public opinion to a great extent^ 
They make favorites, create popularity by extended 
breeding and business methods and the leault is — 

their personal success. ,11 *u •- 

Real merit, in our opinion, plays but the part that 

in some varieties it is generally known, while in the 

others it is either not understood, or is not known 

generally. , , , |.^ 

Every Standard variety has merit and the quality 
to prove it a paying poultry proposition and all that 
is wanted for each is capable breeders to produce 
and bring out these facts and to then tell the world, 
a man with equal confidence in himself and his va- 
riety, such as the other champions have shown and 
upon which they have built their success. 

How wonderful it would be if all breeds and va- 
rieties had equal backing and the same chance for 
favor. Just think of going into a show and seeing 
30 to 50 classes with from 100 to 150 birds each, 
imagine a condition where the entries in each class 
would have to be limited, such conditions are not 
probable, in our time at least, but they are possible 
if merit were known and favor accordingly ex- 
tended. There is no great difference in the real 
quality of the several breeds, surely not as much as 
we find between the favor bestowed. Each Stand- 
ard variety is a worthy one, each should be popular 
and each offers opportunities for those who will try.

irclusive, the Madison Square 

Show will be held in New 

City, the one annual feature 

t in poultrydom that your inter- 


ests won't allow you to miss. So 
mark well the dates and make all ar- 
rangements to attend. 

The New York Show has made a 
reputation that is all its own and to 
its credit, its officers since its organi- 
zation have guarded it with their I 
reputation as men and fanciers and 
have built upon that foundation a 
character that has given the New

ble prestige and value. When we 
come to remember H. V. Crawford 
and Capt. Charles M. Griffing and

According to an Arabic proverb, 
life is composed of two parLs, that 
which has gone — a dream — and that 
which is to come — '^ wish. Perhaps 
all that is past is not a '*dream" to 
you and me. There have been too 
many stern realities in your life to 
classify them as anything so Tght and 
ethereal as dreams. But if the first 
of the year is a good time to turn 
over a new leaf, it ought to be a 
good time to paste down good and 
hard those "dream" pages that for 



lary, 1924 



one reason or another we do not care 
anything about. Paste them down. 
And write your wish upon a good, 
fresh, clean page. 

The fact remains that when we try 
to gaze into the future and see what 
is in store for us, we are bound to 
strain our mental eyesight so that 
we see everything distorted, or else 
we simply gaze at a blank fog bank 
and see nothing. In any case we 
do not learn anything of value, and 
we waste a vast amount of energy 
that might have been put to some 
good use. 

Wisdom shows that what we 
should do is to live each day as it 
comes as if it were the first and last 
day of our lives, taking whatever of 
joy it brings with thankfulness and 
bearing whatever of care it lays upon 
us as bravely as we can. Having 
done this, we will be in the best 
possible condition to bear the re- 
sponsibility or enjoy the happiness 
that the morrow, if it comes, may 
bring. This is one of the conditions 
of life where the line of least resist- 
ance is also the line of most practical

January brings along many ex- 
pectations that often are not real- 
ized by the too confiding poultry 
breeder. Visions of eggs in every 
nest, followed by a desire on the 
part of a few broody hens to rear 
a couple of clutches in early spring, 
seem pleasing anticipations in this 

We seldom think when we feel too 
sanguine about such thing^s, to ask 
ourselves if our hens have winter lay- 
ing properties, have our pullets 

reached the proper age for laying? 
Have we fed, housed and properly 
cared for them to induce them to lay 
in January? But this January may 
be an exception to the general rule, 
for the weather all along the past 
few months was favorable for egg 
production and early sitting. 

There are many advantages to be 
gained by having your breeding 
fowls mated this month and the hens 
started in the egg business. An 
early brood or two is a decided ad- 
vantage. They are generally the first 
layers the following winter, and, 
make the choicest early show birds, 
having the advantage of maturity. 

Do not neglect your breeding 
fowls this month, but take good care 
of them and supply their necessary 
wants. It is poor policy, however, to 
feed them too much or too often. 
They should be in a good condition, 
without being too fat, for remember 
a "fatty state" is antagonistic to pro- 

• • • 


Too much pains cannot be taken in 
guarding the purity of the breeding 
fowls, for selection, as applied intelli- 
gently and methodically by the skill- 
ful breeder, brings quicker and more 
certain returns. Improvement in 
fowls is to be attained by the same 
process as in case of other domestic 
animals. The more vigorous and 
perfect the breed the greater the 
chance that its character will be im- 
pressed upon its descendants. 

There is in the breeding of prime 
poultry stock as much study, experi- 
ence and skill to be expended and 
judiciously applied as in the selection 
and breeding of other kinds of im-

Tompkins' Reds 

1928 - 1924 

Here and there, in the larger shows usu- 
ally, you see a pullet which stands out from 
all the rest on account of her wonderfully 
rich, soft, dark, even shade of red from 
beak to tail — without a weak section any- 
where — with scarcely even a whisper of 
weakness. When you see a single bird like 
that, you pause in wonder at such perfec- 
tion of coloring. 

Let's assume that you are allowed to 
handle that bird; and you find she is red, 
red, RED clear to the skin; and that she 
has that "Handling quality" that to you 
spells egg production. 

I wish evory Red Breeder could come here 

to my yards and see whole pens of 

just such pullets as that! 

Never was there such quality in such 
quantity! And there is a real reason for it 
— it's as logical as that 2 and 2 make 4. 
For like begets like, and this flock is 

Th« oldest line-bred flock of Reds in 
the world. 

I am a breeder, yes; I'd rather do a good job oi' 
breeding super-chick ans than do anything elaein thij 
wide worid. But neither breeding knowledge ncr 
ambition is enough to produce what the Haroid 
Tompkins' strain of Rods is today. TIME is neces- 
sary — yevs and years of TIME. And 

The oldest line-bred flock in the world will 

natormllj produce the most uniform 


How can I prove this to you? In only one of two 
ways: either you must came and see. or else yru must 
Cet some of the real Tompkins' quality yourself, in 
stock or eggs. 

My customers have won blue ribbons in practically 
every show in America in 1923 — besides my own

Line and Inbreeding 

Contributed by a Subscriber 

Inbreeding is mating birds that 
are near akin, and line breeding is a 
method of inbreeding for the pur- 
pose of avoiding the supposed evils 
of the continued mating of those 
that are closely related. The line 
breeder starts with, say, a pair that 
possess ideal qualities of the variety, 
and he wishes to perpetuate them and 
improve them. The females from 
this mating are bred back to their 
sire, and the hen is mated with one 
of her cockerels. This is the be- 
ginning of the two lines, the male 
line and the female line, that are to 
be mated back and forth to avoid. too 
close breeding, but that at the same 
time keep up the blood lines of the 
original pair. The females that are 
taken from the first group produced 
by the original pair and mated back 
to their sire have half the blood of 
their sire and half of the dam. The 
second group, the one produced by 
mating back to the sire, have three- 
fourths of the blood of the sire and 
one-fourth of the blood of the first 
dam, and the group prody/ced by 
mating the dam with one of her cock- 
erels have three-fourths of the blood 
of the dam and one-fourth of the 
blood of the sire. In this mating 
back you have two new groups which 
we will call two and three. Now, if 
a cockerel is taken from group two 
and mated with pullets in group 
three, or vice versa, a new grroup is 
fornied which theoredically possess 
half the blood of the original pair. 
If a pullet is taken from group three 
and mated back to the original sire 
still another group is formed, and 
so may it be on the dam's side. In 
this way different groups are formed, 
all of them having the same blood 
lines, and yet varying enough to. 
avoid too close inbreeding. Such a 
grouping from one pair might be car- 
ried on endlessly like the arranging 
of the musical scale. If one cares to 
sit down and work it out mathemati- 
cally he can tell just wha^ relation 
these different groups are to one an- 
other, and thus be able to give a 
pedigree of every bird in his yards. 

But that anybody scientifically and 
for year^ carries out any such a 
scheme is somewhat doubtful. I do 
not say that it is not done, but I do 
seriously doubt whether such a sys- 
tem of line breeding is practical for 
years by any breeder. Usually when 
a poultryman speaks of his strain as 
being line bred he merely means that 
his present stock has some of the 
blood in it of the birds with which 
he started, that he has adhered to a 
type with which he began. 

Now as to the related subject of 

nbreeding. There is a widespread 

belief that the mating of animals 

near akin works harm in the progeny. 

lere the traditional theory of in- 
iing fails to make out its case, 
true that a flock of inbred fowls 
deteriorate in size and vigor but 
same things may happen to an

New Year's Day, more than any other, 
brings thoughts of the future. It is the be- 
ginning of a new year and as we consider 
this we are a)>t to stop a moment to look 
ahead, and while it is true that we cannot 
see far nor clear, we all have that inborn 
hope and truKt. that good cheer, good health 
and prosperity may be ours. The secret of 
all this is an honest endeavor to attain 
them, a strong, hard try and they will be 
vours and mine to enjoy. So let us a-^ain 
resolve to make 1924 our most successful 
year, let us try for this as we have never 

tried before.

Resolve to cultivate an honest ambition to

They say that there is nothing new under 
the sun but we must credit Harold F. Barber 
with putting over a new and original fea- 
ture in his monthly articles in Everybodys. 
He has just upset old time methods and 
created feature articles of immense value 
with the broadest possible scope of timely 
subjects so well selected that we may refer 
to them as complete poultry knowledge in 
a nutshell. Follow Mr. Barber and his arti- 
cles monthly in Everybodys, to your advant-

One of the shortest and yet the strongest 
statements in the English language is the 
little sentence. "I will." 

• • • 

The English poultry publications as a 
rule are seven-eighths filled with correspond- 
ence giving experiments made, ideas hatched 
and advice of various kinds upon various 
subjects by their readers, and one-eighth edi- 
torial news, show reports, etc. Every issue 
looks more like en experience meeting and 
we doubt not but just such matter is of first 
interest to the beginners and conducive to 
the making and upkeeping of poultry inter- 
ests in general. Our American breeders evi- 
dently are not the correspondents that our 
English cousins are and we would urge them 
to take note, to write more for the publica- 
tions, to five the results of their experience 
and experiments made that would be of ser* 
vice to others. Don't hide yoiirself and your 
knowledge. Be more liberal and by helping 
the other fellow you also help yourself and 

the whole fraternity. 

• • • 

We may profit greatly by reading the ex- 
perience of others, but our own experience 
is the better teacher. 

• • • 

Longfellow had the right idea of courage 
when he wrote: 
"Let us then be up and doing. 

With a heart for any fate. 
Still achieving, itill pursuing. 

Le«m to labor and to wait." 

• • • 

It's the way a man sticks to a thing that 
marks him as a success or a failure. Many a 
fellow has won out at the eleventh hoar Just 
because he wouldn't let go. Don't be • 
quitter. The man who only half tries doean't 
even half make good. 

• • • 

Have you noted that month by month in 
every way Everybodys is getting larger, bet- 
ter, handsomer and broader in its scope with 
articles treating upon every poultry subject 
in and out of season t This is no news to our 
readers for they have seen it themselves. We 
mention it in acknowledgement of the many 
letters received monthly to this effect. Every- 
bodys fills the bill and your poultry friends 
will enjoy and profit by it the same as you. 
Tell them to subscribe for Everybodys to- 

• • • 

Not the nature of the work, but the na- 
ture of the spirit in which the work is done, 

• • • 

We note that Harry Collier refers to us 
as "General" and gives presumably good 
reasons. If Harry had his just dues he 
would be generally referred to as "Father" 
as it is rumored that in time with a little 
arood luck, his line will total half the popula- 
tion of Washington. Harry's general ability 
is es good as it is marvelous and no doubt 
the future will acclaim Washington as the 
Empire State of the Union in place of New 
York with thanks due to H. H. Collier. 
May he receive all possible blessings.

Hens Need Help 



Haphazard feeding of 
whatever is handy won*t 
supply your hens with the 
extra elements they need; 
in fact it does just the op- 
posite. It makes them fat 
and lazy. 

Your hens need a scien- 
tifically blended food to 
supply sufficient protein, 
etc., necessary to form the 
additional whites for extra 
complete eggs. 

Feed Wonder Mash; it will 
make your hens lay more 
eggs, at a greater profit to 
you and it will keep them 

Ask your dealer — if he 
cannot supply you with 
Wonder Mash, kindly send 
us his name and address, 
and we will put you in 
touch with your nearest 
Wonder dealer.

YOU can make your own brooder, 
using the plans which have 
brought success to thousands of en- 
thusiastic poultry keepers in town and 
on the farm. 

For materials, use a packing box, a 
strip of oil cloth, a Putnam Heater and 
a handful of nails. A hammer and a 
saw are the only tools you need. In an 
hour you can make a simple practical 
b?ooder that will do better work than 
the most expensive brooder you can 
buy. And the cost complete ready to 
receive the chicks will be only $4.96. 

This home-made brooder will accom- 
modate from 35 to 60 chicks. If you 
want to raise a larger number of 
Thicks make as many brooders as you 
neld Chicks naturally do better m 
?h1se small flocks and there will be 
fewer losses. Some report raising lOO^c . 
The hover is so made that every 
chick can find just the degree of 
warmth it prefers for comfort. There 

is no crowding or sweating The hover 
can be adjusted to suit the season- 
January to July. There's a cool cham- 
b^? where the little fellows can exer- 
cise and grow strong and husKy. 

You can run the brooder in a sunny 
room in an open shed, or when roofed, 
r?ght' out of doors. You can quickly 
and easily take it apart for cleaning 
and put it together again. 

The Putnam Brooder Heater is un- 
like any other. It holds a quart of oil 
and will burn 10 days without refilling 
^r trimming. Costs only a few cents a 
month to operate. The Aame cannot 
flare up or blow out, no matter how 
Mgh th^e wind. A. H. Behr, Denver 
Colo reports that his Putnam Heater 
car Aed chicks safely through a 36-hour 
blizzard that buried the box under 3 
f e^t of snow. Made throughout of

Profit Builders with a Laying Birthright 

They offer you the chance to get quick profitable in- 
crease in your egg production. Without investing a for- 
tune you can get results — results that are quicker and 
more effective than if you spent for a few top-notch cock- 
erels the money that would buy you two hundred Hillpot 
Quality Leghorn Chicks. 

These chicks are from flocks selerted not for show but for 
egg works, under the supervision of a foremost poultry expert 
They have the proper pelvic set; the big long back; the deep 
full breast that experience has proved mean more eggs. They 
grow quickly and lay early, but even more important they are 
real winter producers — when eggs are at top prices.

IE know a man who breeds chickens. 
He loves the work. Recently he 
paid over a hundred dollars for a 
henhouse which he is to use for 
eight birds — a mating of seven of 
his very best, and a male well-nigh 
priceless. He is proud of that house, not be- 
cause it is a fancy, expensive house (because 
it in't really) but he is proud of that house 
because he knows he is doing just the very 
best he knows how, to do a good job of breed- 
ing His thought, all the time, is of that mat- 
ing rather than of the house which is to house 
it His love for his job and for those fowl is 
the b'g thing, the new henhouse merely a tool 
to let him do his work better— to turn out a 
better product. The breeder's loyalty to his 
ideal and to his job has cost him money, but 
has given him great satisfaction. 

EVERYBODYS has a new home. We're 
proud of this home, not because it is a 
fancy, expensive home (because it isnt, 
really) but we're proud of this new home be- 
cause we feel we are doing just the best we 
know how, to give you a good magazine. Our 
thought is of the magazine rather than of the 
fine new building which now houses it. Our 
love for our job and for Everybodys is the 
big thing, this modern building is merely the 
tool to help us do our work better— to turn 
out a better and better Everybodys. We just 
can't help but feel this loyalty, because every 
mail brings us so many evidences of the loy- 
alty of our readers to Everybodys. 

WE'RE all just one great big family — a 
widespread, heart-warm family from 
Maine to California, Seattle and Frisco to 
Tampa. This is your new building— your in- 
terest in, and loyalty to Everybodys has really 
built this building. Without the warm hearted 
words from members of Everybodys family 
which come to us all the time, we would never 
have had an urge to spend the money to build 
this new building for a better Everybodys. 
It is, then, truly your building, and you are 
entitled to know just what sort of a building 
has been put up with your loyal mterest. Be- 
cause money alone would never have built 
this — it needed money and loyalty. 

wbCAY, Mr. Hostetter, that dei^k is waiting, 
i3 and a whole lot more stuff is crowding 

right behind it." . 

•♦All right, Huston, just two minutes!— 
"Here! You Painter! Bring that oil 
right over here, and as fast as these 
carpenters get that floor laid and 
scraped, you can oil it, and we'll place 
this office furniture right after you, 
as fast as the floor is clear for it!" 
Putting that desk into place nearly tore 

the heel off the painter's boot! 

AND that's the way we worked here, to 
get this January issue out on time. You 
maybe would not notice a day or two delay in 
the delivery of your copy, but we'd lie awake 
worrying and scheming, if it looked like we 
couldn't start mailing magazines on the last 
day of the month. 

JUST look at the upper right hand picture 
on the next page. There is Mr. Hostetter 
busily overseeing the construction of our 
new shipping room, while all around the 
presses are running off part of this issue, 
and the binding machines are being got 
ready the big Dexter folder was running, 
just behind the photographer as the picture 
was taken; we had to enter the building 
through the boiler room because the con- 
crete steps were not yet set, and electricians 
were pretty much all over the place. 

WHY all the hullaballoo? you ask? So 
this copy of your magazine should get 
to you right on time. It's no easy thing to 
leap from the back of one horse to the back 
of another at full speed— that's a circus 
stunt— but circus stunts are easy besides 
changing 48 truck loads of printing machin- 
ery from one building to another in a differ- 
ent part of the town, when the second build- 
ing was only partly finished. But here we 
are, safely on the new horse, and he is a lot 
faster and smoother to ride, than the other 
one was. Loyalty did it, with her twin sister 

SEEMS like everybody connected with the 
big Everybodys' family gets that idea.

who came from the factory to move these

The bifc machine in the foreground takes the large 

r (Tinted sheets as they come trnm the press, and 
olds them into the pages as you get them in the 
magazine — 32 pages at a time, and 2,500 of these 
every hour. How would you like to fold 80.000 
pages an hour? 

The shipping room is getting its door hung. Mr. 
Hostetter, bless his heart, is on the job seeing that 
no time is I<»st. Note the large windows even in this 
comparatively unimportant corner where the two men 
are working. The picture does not show how much 
noise was going on. 

Mr. Nicholson, the head pressman, and a helper, standinj? at the head and the tail ends 
of one of the bip Babcock presses. Another monster in the background. The one in front 
is turning out th"s issue, while the rear one i*; taking a short rest. A big press is one of the 
most wonderful inventions of mechanical genius; and Oh! Boy! How it does eat up the 
paper! Three huge skylights overhead as weM as large windows flood the room with light.

giant presses, the various sub-contractors; 
our own compositors, pressmen, circulation 
clerks, office help — everybody ready to work 
nights, most of them working nights, too, to 
make the big change as easily and smoothly 
as possible. Even the postmaster and the 
express agent have acted as though the honor 
and the prosperity of the whole town de- 
pended on a smooth running Everybodys. 

YES, it was good to hear the boss of the 
printing machinery gang say "I've seen 
to the moving of large newspaper offices over 
night, moved all kinds of presses and ma- 
chinery, but I must say I never saw a job of 
this size go any smoother than this has gone. 
Every time a machine had to be placed, its 
permanent position was just ready to receive 

WE had a dedication here yesterday 
morning as soon as our desks were in 
position so that we could get at our work — 
and we had another dedication this morning, 
and we're going to have another one tomor- 
row morning, and one every morning. A 
dedication to Loyalty, and her twin sister Co- 
operation, in behalf of a better Everybodys; 
a better, more helpful service to the whole 
Everybodys' family all over the good old 
U. S. A. 

WE might call this bribk building "The 
Shrine" but after all the sign will 
doubtless read simply "Everybodys Poultry 
Magazine." We'll have a sign, of course, 
though it won't show up very far, "The 
Shrine" being located at present on an alley 
just off the main square of Hanover. Pretty 
soon we shall try to have the "alley" emerge 
into an "avenue" or something, like a butter- 
fly coming out of a cocoon, but just now it's 
only an alley. You see we aren't "throwing 
a front" or "putting on dog" at all — ^just 
getting our new house for a more efficient 
work room. 

BUT the things that help the worker rather 
than the poser, are here. Such a light 
building you ever did see! Lots and lots 
and lots of light! Great big windows that 
just flood all the working space with the best 
working light in the world — God's own. No 
need for electric lights here, except on dark 
days in the winter, when even a hen would 
appreciate a little artificial light. Our com- 
posing room is the envy of every printer who 
has seen it, and the girls working on circula- 
tion and mailing and stenog^raphy aren't go- 
ing to have to consult the oculist to save 
their eyesight. No! Sir! They are loyal, 
and Everybodys is loyal to them, too. 

A>JD it's your loyal interest that has built 
this new building, Reader. Your loyalty 
that write us daily letters of friendly sug- 
gestion, letters of good cheer, letters of ap- 
preciation or of kindly inquiry. Your loyalty 
that writes to advertisers who also belong to

tries. To us, it appeared the triumph 
of all previous Coliseum Shows in 
every particular, and we were not 
alone in this opinion. 

Something about the Chicago 
Show appeals to us as, perhaps, mora 
distinctive than any great show we 
have ever attended. Here, we meet 
these open-handed westerners rignt 
in their own metropolis, farciers to 
the very core, and men who know the 
fine points of the standard-bred bird 
from "a to z." They come expect- 
ing the keenest kind of competition, 
and in this, they are never disap- 
pointed; yet, win or lose, we find 
them here, year after year, enjoying 
in its entirety the pleasure of ex- 
hibiting, happy in their own win- 
nings, or defeated, game all the way 

through. , 

Exhibitors come from everywhere; 
north to Canada; all parts of the 
Great West, South and East. Note- 
worthy is the fact that the Coliseum 
is valued by the breeder. They 
want to be there, and surely this v/as 
demonstrated at the recent show, a 
truly representetive American Poul- 
try Exhibition, national in its pres- 
tige, as attested by one of the most 
. distinctive entries we have ever 


We could not, in justice to this 
show, attempt a report of ttie 
classes. Let it suffice to say, that 
one just had to see, to know and un- 
derstond the fine quality of the 
show Big, strong, keenly contested 
classes, in practically all the more 
popularly-bred varieties. Good judg- 
ing characterized the success of the 

show, yet after all is said and done^ 
the complete awards tell the tale. Da 
they not, Brother Fancier? 

The impressions of newer exhibit- 
ors seem to have been, invariably, as 
of those who show year after year, 
"we will go back again." On our 
return East, it was our pleasure to 
meet one of these newer Coliseum 
exhibitors. Our first question was, 
"Well, how did you like the Coli- 
seum Show?" "Great!", was the re- 
ply, "a great show, great in a thou- 
sand ways, and back I shall go, an- 
other year." It is this feeling that 
is contagious. Commercialism has in 
no way dimmed the spirit of the fan- 
cier It is what we would call a 
balanced "AU-American Poultry Ex- 
hibit." We will take our hat oflF, 
always, and proclaim the Chicago 
Coliseum Show one of the great 
poultry shows of the universe.

ized experience and a determination to build a Wickless, 
Oil-Burninc Brooder that EXCELS ALL other brooders, as 
a Grand Champion Hen excels a barnyard scrub. It has

for the Commercial Poultrvman 

1. Lord Farms' business comes from the man 
whose living depends on his poultry. It is the 
man who must watch every cent he spends 
to whom this advertisement is written. 

What a Commercial Poultrvman wants: 

A Commercial Poultry man's efforts are towards having 
a lot of marketable eggs to sell. His profits depend 
on how much those eggs cost him. In the final analy- 
sis he wants the most eggs for the least investment 
and running expense. 

His ultimate success depends on how he invests his 

What he may expect from Lord Farms : 

If a poultryman wUl take the time and trouble to check 
up the customers of Lord Farms he will notice a 
number of facts : 

1. Lord Farms' customers are prosperous. 

2. Lord Farms' customers buy an increasing number 
of chicks each year. A poultryman buying one thousand 
chicks in 1923 will, most likely, buy fifteen hundred at 
least in 1924. 

3. Lord Farms' customers have a product to sell that 

brings the top price. 

4. Lord Farms' customers are proud of their flocks. 

5. Lord Farms' customers are accustomed to success 
in their poultry ventures, if they have handled Lord 
Farms' Single Comb White Leehoms a number of 
years. They know what it is to have a flock of pullets 
on a paying basis at a reasonably early age, and con- 
tinue as a good paying proposition^onth after month 
and year after year. 

6. Lord Farms' customers have confidence in the 
place they buy their chicks. They know that they are 
getting the best chicks possible for their purpose, and 
that the quality and potential profit increases each year.

itp to the eggs! 

If your incubator is right 
in build and operation — and 
if it is equipped with JEM 
Thermometers — then your 
hatching results depend sim- 
ply upon the eggs. 

Most high-grade incuba- 
tors — the kind that produce 
big hatches of healthy chicks 
— are equipped with these 
precise thermometers because

A. E. Moeller Thermometers are 
made by skilled operators, to con-

If your incubator isn't fitted with

Some men who claim to have been 
poultrymen for a great number of 
years evidently have not been very 
observing, otherwise they could not 
help but observe the fact that the 
normally yellow skinned hens such 
as Leghorns lose their yellow color 
from vent, eye ring, beak, skin and 
shanks as they progress during the 
laying year. 

H. H. Collier, in his article in the 
November isjue of Everybodys Poul- 
try Magazine, under the title, "The 
Housewife and a Few Hens," has 
written the following: "The hen with 
the yellow legs will not have white 
leg?, oven if she lays every day in 
the whole 365 days. If the color of 
the leg is to be yellow, no hen can 
lay that color out. If the beak of a 
hen be yellow it will be yellow no 
matter how many eggs that hen may 
lay. The beak and legs may fade 
but the yellow color will be there 
despite the great lay." A bit far- 
ther on he stated that the first time 
he ever heard of fowls laying the 
j^llow out of their legs was when 
some professor at a college made a 
r/Ote of it in some hens that had made 
pood egg laying records. He also

Of all the eggs set in the

hatch. Why? Is hatching 
just luck? No. From nearly 
every egg you set, you can 
hatch a chicken. 
The reason many eggs fail to 
hatch is this: The average 
ration fed the parent birds is 
weak in the vitamins that 
give the egg the spark of life,

To scan the pages of our leading 
poultry journals and see displayed 
the advertisements of more than a 
score of poultry shows to be held in 
the month of December; some local 
in extent; others national and inter- 
national in scope we ask ourselves 
the question, Why? Our brethren 
across the border and in distant 
countries, with sporting blood run- 
ning through their veins prefer to 
use their fowls for cock fights but 
so long as the sun rises and sets the 
true sportsmen of the U. S. A. and 
our neighboring Dominion will want 
the poultry show. A great deal has 
been written and spoken about the 
"Survival of the fittest" regarding 
plant and animal life and it might be 
used to an advantage when applied 
in other spheres, but in the case of 
poultry shows we believe that the 
mortality among them is compara- 
tively small, for year after year 
shows are staged and exhibitions held 
which are a credit to the town or city 
and to the poultry interests in gen- 
eral. One of these shows, climbing 
rapidly to the top among the lead- 
ing poultry exhibitions of the East, 
just closed its curtain for the 1923 
season with no record breaking num- 
bers, but with a uniform well bal- 
anced poultry, pigeon and pet stock 
exhibit of most excellent quality. 
The slight falling off in entries in 
the single classes may be due to one 
or both of two causes. The change 
in policy of the number of birds to 
fill a class kept away some of the 
varieties of least popularity. Then 
too, the Baltimore Show did not en- 
tertain any of the specialty clubs 
this year. Arrows are pointing to- 
ward the meet of the American Ban- 
tam Association in Baltimore in 1924 
and we wish to emphasize the fact 
that the little feathered beauties 
could be shown nowhere else under 
better conditions than in that spaci- 
ous Fifth Regiment Armory with 
single tier cooping and an abund- 
ance of sunlight and better still, the 
most excellent management. Mathe- 
matically speaking when we add 
quality, numbers, the boys' and girls' 
exhibit, the experimental exhibt, the 
display coeps and the utility classes, 
we consider the show the best ever, 
and one of the really important fea- 
tures was the exhibit of the boys and 
girls who were the recipients of eggs 
from the Baltimore & Ohie Railroad 
working in co-operation with the 
University of Maryland. In the very 
center of the show building, artistic- 
ally arranged were 32 pens of Single 
Comb Rhode Island Reds and White 
Plymouth Rocks, competing for 
prizes which ranged from a trip to 
the Madison Square Garden Show 
to a few dollars in cash to the youthful ex- 

hibitor. To go into detail witk first hen; secona. " '^ " » - ^"^- -■

ISI Beets Street Marion, Indiana 

thaw out Only feed enough green 
food to the hens that they will con- 
sume in a short time and if any is 
left over, take this back to a room 
where the temperature is above 

Feed lots of sour milk if it is 
available and in case you can not 
get the fresh sour milk, one can buy 
semi-solid buttermilk that can be 
diluted with water to the drinkable 

If you note any of your hens 
showing a sign of bowel trouble, 
take such hens out of the flock and 
cure the trouble before putting them 
back into their regrular runs. 

On many farms the hens are kept 
in their houses all winter but it 
would be advisable to allow the hens 
to run on pleasant days. Give them 
feed in scratch in the middle of the 
day out in their runs and they will 
get exercise that will add to their 
vigor. On cold days keep them in 
the houses and one is not apt to have 
a lot of mean colds in the flock. 

See that every yard is mated up 
by the fifteenth of January if you 
hope to get out late February and 
March chicks. It would be better to 
have the yards mated by the begrin- 
ning of the New Year. Where there 
is a hen short on feathers, it is best 
to keep her out of the flock until she 
gets her full plumage. Hens con- 
fined to a close house often develop 
bad habits and one of these habits is 
feather eating. Feather eating is 
generally caused by hens moulting. 
The feathers look red and the others 
pick at them, once they bring blood 
they will eat every feather off the 
moulting hen and when that hen is 
finished they will start to eating the 
feathers off each other. When you 
find hens eating feathers, try and 
locate the bad one in the bunch and 
put her off to herself, feed her meat. 
It is not a bad idea to hang a piece 
of beef in the house that the hens 
may pick at. Get a neck piece that 
is good and tough. Hang this from 
the roof so that the fowls will have 
to jump up a short distance to reach 
it. This gives exercise and at the 
same time it takes more time to con- 
sume the meat. Oftentimes where 
one has feather eaters they can be 
cured by giving meat in the way 

Try and have every hen that is 
mated in full feather when she goes 
into the houses and you are not apt 
to have trouble from feather eaters. 
Egrg eating is another bad habit 
formed by hens. This is caused by 
hens piling on the nest and breaking 
eggs. Once they get a taste of eggs 
they form a habit. To break up the 
hens, try and locate the most per- 
sistent egg eater and get her out of 
the flock. If one will trim the beaks 
of the hens by cutting the upper and 
lower beak, they will soon stop break- 
ing eggs. Have some china nest eggs 
in the nest and gather eggs often.

young turkeys there is nothing bet- 
ter than steel cut or granulated oats. 
Give the youngsters sour milk from 
the «Urt. See that they have fresh 
water before tiiem so that if they 
want a change in their dnnk they 
can have it. Place the hen with the 
brood in a coop and keep the young- 
sters in for the first few days. Af- 
ter the young turkeys get old enough 
to be strong or about a week old, 
place a brick under one comer of 
the coop and allow the young tur- 
keys to roam but keep the hen closed 
UD The coop should be placed on 
a grassy lawn if possible. Turkeys 
eat a pile of grass. If you have no 
lawn, spade up some good grassy 
sod and put that into your coop. 

A coop for turkeys should be high 
enough so that your hen can stand 
up without touching the top, in that 
way a hen is not near so apt to step 
on the young poults. Have the coop 
about three feet wide by six feet 
long. Have a good place for a hover 
where the hen can go in case of 
rain, about three by three feet will 
be big enough for the hover part, 
this will leave one three by three feet 
for a run and this can be covered 
over with wire netting. If the cats 
are bad in your neighborhood, have 
the wire with one-inch mesh on top 
but if you do not have to watch out 
for cats, two-inch mesh will answer 
every purpose. Have the top hinged 
so that you can get into the coop 
easily. Change your coop from day 
to day by moving it to new ground. 
If one moves the coop often the hen 
will not scratch up the lawn and the 
young turkeys will always have fresh 
grass to eat. 


(Continued from pa^e 15) 
kind at this time, but it simply shows 
how valuable sour skim milk is in 
providing protein and in balancing 
the grain ration fed to our birds, and 
there is always the possibility that 
some simpler, equally efficient method 
of feeding will be evolved for use in 
our corn belt states where com, wheat 
and skim milk are always available. 
We shall watch the progress of Pro- 
fessor Martin's experiment in this 
direction very closely. 

The above production records, 
from a research standpoint, are 
probably higher than they would be 
on a good many college plants, for 
the simple reason that Professor Mar- 
tin uses in these experiments, his 
heavy laying strains of birds and 
when it is understood that in the 
breeding pens at the poultry plant at 
Lexington, there are eight hens with 
a record of over 250 eggs and eighty- 
eight hens with records of over 200 
eggs, one can see that the normal 
flock average is bound to be higher 
than on the normal poultry plant. 

One good turn deserves another. 
There is no question but what Pro- 
fessor Martin and his co-workers are

Hatch and 

Brood Wit 


Convert your equipment 
to use electricity 

If you have electricity, use it for 
hatching and brooding chicks. With 
a few simple changes, any of your 
old machines can be made into 
modern electrics, absolutely auto- 
matic. Regulate their own heat and 
need no attention. Think what this 
means! No lamps to fill, no wicks 
to trim, no risk of fire or explosion, 
no smoke, no fumes, no dirt— no 
worries or work of any kir»d. 

Wonderful hatches! 

Lectro-hatch means bigger hatchiu 
and stronger chicks. Chicks hatched 
this way have the appearance of be- 
ing a week old the day they're 
hatched. Due to pure air and to 
constant even temperature, the chick 
has a better start and faster growth. 

The Lectro-hatch element can be 
easily, quickly installed in any style 
machine. Operates at low cost on 
any current — farm plant, power line 
or town system. Almost runs itself. 

L. N. Gilmore, Prof, of Poultry 
Husbandry at Syracuse University, 
says: "We had the greatest success 
with your electrically operated in- 
cubator, I can conceive of no better 
device for the absolute control of 
temperature. It's a wonder." 

N. Carolina State College, Univers- 
ity of Illinois. Manitoba Agricultur- 
al College. Connecticut Agricultural 
College and other colleges alid rec- 
ognized poultry authorities all over 
the country are adopting and rec- 
ommending Lectro-hatch equipment.

The poultry shows of the South are over 
with the exception of tho Florida shows 
which will be held in February. Florida is 
a coming poultry state and it will pay any 
one who has stock to sell to show at some 

of the Florida shows.

The American Poultry Association will un- 
fliTtake something new this year. Perhajjs 
the most imjiortant thing to be undertaken is 
tile registration of poultry. The details of 
this undertaking are in charge of a com- 
mittee hoaded by M. F. Delano, director from 
the First District. Mr. Delano sponsored 
the movement at Philadelphia. He pointed 
out the wonderful possibilities for the asso- 
ciation and the great value to the poultry 
industry. I hope he will meet with the com- 
plete co-operation of the members of the 
association and will have the support of the 
poultry industry in this new undertakinsr. 

Another important move is s|)onsor«'d by 
Will Blackman. director from the Eiehth 
District. Mr. HIackman hails from the West 
Coast where the laying hen has contributed 
ti) the wealth of the country. He proposes 
that all ecp- laying contests be conducted 
tinder a uniform rule issued by the Ameri- 
can Poultry Association and having the 
ba<kin;r of its Rreat membership. Mr. 
Hlackman conducted an investigation along 
the e lines last summer and at the time he 
br.usrht this matter before the convention 
at Philadelphia he had many encouraging re- 
p* rts from the management of egjf laying; 
contests throughout the United States. I 
hope and believe that he will be able to 
show Kreat results. 

Another undertaking which promises to 
bring the association more forcibly to thi' 
attention of the poultry industrv of America 
IS the year book. This m.ntter caused a great 
doal of discussion at Philadelphia and after 
adoption by the board of directors was placed 
in charge of a committee headed by Presi- 
dent Rigg with such able members as F. W. 
DeLancey. D. E. Hale and Harold Nourse. 
If this matter is carried out successfully, 
and I believe it will be. it promises to l>e 
one of the most constructive movements un- 
dertaken by the association in many years. 
I hope those who are resoonsible for carry- 
ing this i)lan out will have the united sup- 
port of the association membership. 

There is another movement which may be 
counted upon to bring about a better un- 
derstandinc: between the membership and 
the association. This is the district organi- 
zation plan which was adopted at Philadel- 
phia. Districts No. 2 and 4 have organized 
along these lines. The other districts of the 
association are expected to put the plan into 
execution prior to the next convention which 
will be held at Toronto. Canada. . The suc- 
cess of this plan depends very largely en 
the co-operative spirit shown by the state 
or provincial presidents and the directors of 
the several districts. I earnestly urge every 
director to seek the co-operation and sup- 
port of the state branches in this district. 
The plan is a part of the constitution of the 
American Poultry Association. That is as 
far «s the convention could Ko. The succesA 
of the movement is up to the director and 
the membership in his district.

The Central Carolina Poultry Association, 
(Jreensboro, N. C., has another successful 
show to its credit. With more than 1.2U0 
birds in the coops the show was held De- 
remb«'r 5-7. There were 11. '> exhibitors from 
nvp states. The show was indeed by Jacob 
Eberly. Dallastown, Pa., and Charles Nixon, 
\\ashington, N. J. Olan Barnes, secretary 
treasurer of the association, was in charge 
• f the show with E. P. Benbow and C. L. 
Penix as superintendents. The annual meet- 
ing: of the North Carolina Poultry Associa 
tion, which is a state branch of the Ameri- 
can Poultry Association, was held during 
show week. This association is headed by 
C. F. Chapin, of Greensboro, with Dr. B. F. 
Kaupp, Raleigh, secretary.

The productive life of an apple 
tree is directly affected by the treat- 
ment the tree receives during the 
first few years of its life. This ap- 
plies to pruning fully as much as it 
does to any other phase of orchard 
management. A strong framework, 
consisting of well placed stock scaf- 
fold branches is essential to the de- 
velopment of trees that will produce 
profitable crops without serious in- 
jury through the loss of large limbs. 
General Principles of Pruning 
There are two rather distinct 
periods in the development of an 
apple tree. First we have the period 
during which the tree is being trained 
to some desired form when the de- 
velopment of a number of strong, 
well placed branches to form the 
framework of the tree is the most 
important consideration, the chief 
energy of the tree being devoted to 
wood growth with very little con- 
sideration to fruit production. Dur- 
ing this period a framework should 
be started that will be able to sup- 
port heavy crops of fruit in later 
years and at the same time be of 
such a form and size as to be eco- 
nomical and easy to handle. The 
length of this period varies with dif- 

ferent varieties and different soils, 
the average being from three to five 

The second and most critical 
period is that during which the tree 
changes from heavy wood growth to 
heavy fruit production. Most varie- 
ties of apples pass through this period 
between the age of four and six 
years. Heavy pruning of any kind 
during this period is likely to result 
in heavy wood growth at the expense 
of fruit production. Very light cut- 
ting back should be practiced and 
only enough thinning out of branches 
should be done to keep the tree in 
proper shape. 

A third period is sometimes recog- 
nized covering the bearing life of the 
tree. All pruning during th.s period 
should be done with the idea of 
maintaining and increasing fruit pro- 
duction by means of an even dis- 
tribution of active bearing wood 
throughout the tree, and at the same 
time allow economical orchard man- 

Tjpes of Tree* 

Apple trees may be pruned to one 
of several types or forms, those in 
general use being the natural form; 
open center or vase shape; central

Insure Fertility of Hatcking Eggs 
Contributed by a Subscriber 

It is high time that the poultry 
keeper is thinking of securing fer- 
tile, hatchable eggs. If the breeding 
stock has been properly wintered, is 
hardy, free from vermin and in good 
laying condition, that is not usually 
a very difficult matter. But there 
are times when all these conditions 
seem to exist and yet the eggs do 
not seem to become fertile. 

There are a great many causes for 
unfertility. Excessive fat, lack of 
exercise, too close confinement, in- 
judicious feeding, and damp, drafty 
houses, all have their effect on the 
fertility of the egg. 

Hens that have been forced dur- 
ing the winter for heavy egg pro- 
duction often produce unfertile or 
weak-germed eggs. Stimulants of 
any kind are to be avoided during 
the breeding season. 

The writer has always had a pre- 
ference for whole grain during the 
breeding season, but I have been 
forced to the opinion that it was only 
a prejudice, as eggs from hens fed 
on mash produced fully as many and 
as healthy chicks. If hens take suffi- 
cient exercise to keep them healthy, 
they will produce hatchable eggs, if 
the elements of the food and other 
conditions are right. This fact has 
been clearly demonstrated by experi- 
ments that have come under my no- 
tice. Hens of the heavy and less 
active breeds must be prevented 
from becoming too fat by exercise 
in the open air and a liberal diet of 
green food. Under such conditions, 
the heaviest laying hens are apt to 
produce the most fertile and hatch- 
able eggs, whether fed on mash or 
whole grain. 

While the first eggs are considered 
the best, yet hens that have laid 
moderately all winter on a good 
healthy diet can with safety be used 
in the breeding pens. 

Of course, without a good male we 
can have no fertility. It has been 
said that he is half the flock, and in 
this respect he is by far the largest 
half. It is therefore necessary to 
have a healthy, vigorous male in 

every pen. The number of 
male can fertilize will depend 
the breed and the activity oj 

When breeding solely for co 
cial purposes it is not a bad p 
change the males from one 
other. Have three males for 
two pens, alternating them so 
give each a day's rest every 
day. This of course, prevents 
oritism, and^nsures a larger pe 
age of hatchable eggs. Such a 
cannot be pursued by a fancier 
is breeding for feather, nor is 
good policy when breeding for 
by the pedigree system. In the' 
ter case, if the males for each 
are full brothers, and have the 
characteristics, they can be us 
this manner, but I would not

should be bred with as much ca

sites, and it makes little diffe

A good water supply is also n 
sarj% and should be renewed at 
every day in cold and twice a da

pans are empty. 

By this method there is little

for all they get, except the 
food, and of this they should be 
all they can eat. While it may

S. "A^^^n ^{hU clas/^r/ cLelessly 

The Royal Winter Fair at Toronto 
has held its second annual exhibition 
and in all its departments of live- 
stock, fruits, vegetables, flowers, etc., 
has established new records in en- 
tries that prove its popularity and 
assure its great worth to breeders 
and growers alike. The best pro- 
duced in Canada was here, and also 
some of the best from the States as 
we found there were 84 exhibitors 
in the several departments from the 
States and they proved substantial 
winners in strong and fair competi- 

We gratefully acknowledge many 
favors extended and congratulate 
the management for the way this 
monster exhibit was handled. That 
master of managers, A. P. Wester- 
velt, was in supreme charge and 
everything, in every department, ran 
smooth, without delays, as is usual 
under his care. This year J. S. 
Greenshields whom all poultrymen 
know as one of Canada's leading 
breeders was first assistant with 
charge of all livestock entries and 
proved very capable. The poultry- 
men's interests were grandly cared 
for with Mr. Greenshields and Su- 
perintendent Brinstin aided by the 
special committee of Joseph Russell, 
J. H. Saunders, Geo. Robertson, E. R. 
Durand, etc. 

The Hon. John S. Martin, Minister 
of Agriculture for Ontario, whom our 
readers all know as Canada's leading 
poultryman, was in daily attendance 

poultrymen. We are also pleased 
to state that Joseph Russell has fully 
recovered his health and is more than 
ever interested in poultry and its 
breeders. Judge C. L. Whiting with 
his duties finished spent his time be- 
tween the Leghorns, Reds and 
Horses — he is a lover and breeder of 
all three. 

Several specialty club meetingrs 
were held, notably those of the Part- 
ridge and Silver Wyandotte Clubs, 
Barred and White Plymouth Rock 
Clubs, etc. The entries in these 
classes were very large and many 
superior birds were shown. 

The show was splendidly arranged 
and balanced as the record of entries 
show and there was also nice balance 
in the quality which was very super- 
ior throughout, it taking rare qual- 
ity to win in every variety and class. 
Following we give the classes as they 
appear in the catalogue and submit 
our comments which we regret must 
be brief.

many of the leading prizes going to birds 
from the States (as they say in Canada). 
The size of the old and young was good to

condition unusually good. The first and

Oat Sprouter 



Out of Loafers 

TO make hens lay in winter you must 
feed growing green food rich in vita^ 
mines. Sprouted oats furnish the best of 
such food at lowest cost 
This home-made Oat Sprouter, shown 
above, was made in one evening by a 14-year-old boy with no tools but saw 
and hammer The total cost includmg the heater was $2.99. Tens of thou- 
^ds o7^hese sprouters have been made at home by poultry keepers, and 
rufa^dso'fTilimonials prove that it is the ^^^^"^ ^ ^^^^^^l^lf,,"^^ 
ooerate and handiest and best oat sprouter ever built. It will supply better 
SSd sweeter sprouted oats with less fuss and dirt and work than any sprouter 
m^e no master how expensive. I will send you, free, easily followed plans 
for building this oat sprouter together with a full description of the Little 
Rtnam St^vfwith^w it is heated. Plans for building the sprouter are 

packed in every stove, also instructions for using the stove to keep the water 
m poultry fountains from freezing. ,^ cc ^ 

Don't go through another winter without an oat sprouter. You can t afford 
to be without one even though yo\i keep but eight fowls. 

No Winter Eggs WitHotit Water 

Over 80% of an egg is water and no matter how well you tend and feed your 
fowls they can't lay their best unless unfrozen water is constantly before 
them' One cold day with water frozen and inaccessible may stop egg produc- 
tion for a month. A Little Putnam Stove keeps the water at just that tonic 
temperature best relished by the hens. The increased egg production from a 
pen of eight fowls will pay for the stove in one month. 

The Little Putnam Stove is protected by basic patents. There is nothing like 
it in the world It is made of galvanized iron and brass, is 8 inches m diameter, 
4 inches hiah holds 3 pints of oil and bums a month without ftllingor trimmtttR; costs but four or 
fiie rents a month for oil. Fool-proof and fire-safe : keeps water from freezmi? in zero weather ;

course in my case, it was White Rocks 
he wanted to sell. Said he was going 
out of White Rocks, so would sell 
me 39 two-thirds grown pullet*:' out 
of 283 and 291 dams, sired by the 
son of a 299-egg hen, for only .^3.00 
each. Now there's a bargain lor you! 
I asked him a lot of questions about 
their immediate ancestry, hatches, 
etc., and found out that this man 
succeeded in getting 37 pullets 
hatched out of four, hatches from 
these two hens, and now, after brood- 
ing, and rearing, and growing them 
to two-thirds size, they had swelled 
to 39 pullets, at $3.00 apiece. I wish 
I could brood and rear a» well as 
that! But I was afraid I'd never be 
able to get such good results with his 
stock, so I didn't buy them. Maybe 
they are there yet; and if any reader 
would like the name and address of 
the man, I'll be glad to send it along. 
I don't know whether the high-record 
Leghorns are unsold or not. But 
maybe he has others by now. Any 
particular sort of records you want, 
egg records, or hatchability rec- 
ords, or how 37 day olds grow to 39 
pullets, or anything like that? May- 
be some of you readers have hear J

Ohio, (e) 

Helen Dow Whitaker and her hus- 
band, "W. K." used to have charge 
of the Experiment Station at Pull- 
man, Wash. It was there that tho 
first Egg Laying Contest* in the West 
was held, in 1916. You have all 
heard of Walter Hogan, now dead, 
and the "Hogan System" for judg- 
ing egg production in advance. Well, 
they got Mr. Hogan himself up to 
Pullman to go carefully over every 
one of the 1,047 pullets entered in 
that contest, and every facility was 
given him to apply his "System" as 
exactly as possible. Every one who 
has read "The Call of the Hen" 
which sets forth this system, will 
want to know how closely the first 
great advocate of culling came to 
prophesying correctly the lay of these 
pullets, which were trapnested the 
entire year immediately following 
the testing. Here are the results of 
the trapping of all the Leghorns 
tested by Mr. Hogan — 335 of them: 
of these 335, Mr. Hogan judged 
within ten eggs of the annual record 
of 49 of them, or 14.6%; he came 
within 20 eggs of judging the pro- 
duction of 80 pullets (this includes 
the 49 above which were within ten 
eggs of correct); that is 23,8'7r — 
le:5s than one-quarter of these pul- 
lets could be gauged within 20 eggs 
of correct, by the man who invented 
the "Hogan System." Of the other 
76%, he was off from 21 to 30 eggs 
in the case of 10%; another 10% 
fooled him to the extent of from 31 
to 40 eggs; 6% differed in the trap- 
nests from his predictions by from 41 
to 50 eggs; and he was more than

fects to be avoided and proper matlngs to 
make. It may properly be called the Key 

to the Standard, so completely does It

$1.50 eggs are almost too good for 

In some few cases the buyer may 
be most careful and all may appar- 
ently go well and yet he may have 
a poor hatch. These cases are largely 
due to damage in transit and the 
breeder will invariably make good 
under his contract in any event. In 
the vast majority of cases the breeder 
does his part and the seller his part — 
and the transaction is satisfactory to 
both sides. 

In other words the selling of eggs 
for hatching is a legitimate business, 
of some profit to the breeder in his 
otherwise dull season and of wonder-

It will, of course, be understood 
that we cannot go into detail as to 
how to mate up any particular va- 
riety, but that it is our intent to give 
a general outline of procedure that 
will be applicable to all breeds. The 
selection of the birds to be mated 
must be left to the judgment and ex- 
perience of the breeder, as only that 
and nothing else can give him the 
necessary proficiency so as to mate 
that the progeny will come up to the 
expectation of the breeder. Yet 
there are points of the greatest im- 
portance to be taken into considera- 
tion that enter into the successful 
mating of every breed and variety 
that it would simply be to court 
failure to disregard them, and it is 
on this basis we continue our sub- 

One of the most important fea- 
tures is to select a suitable breed, 
and in nine cases out of every ten 
this is very likely to be under- 
estimated. Some fowls thrive fairly 
well under conditions that would be 
ruinous to others, and therefore we 
see the importance of careful selec- 
tion as far as this matter is con- 

The great variety of fowls now 
bred in this country offers to the 
breeder a wide field for selection. It 
must be borne in mind that of this 
gre^t variety all are not equally well 
adapted to various purposes of util- 
ity. While a certain breed may give 
entire, satisfaction in the hands of 
one breeder, another may find these 
fowls unsatisfactory because he is 
unable to give them the necessary 
care, and to provide for them the 
conditions under which they thrive 
best. The neglect of this precaution 
has undoubtedly caused numerous 
failures, and because of it the best 
matings have proven disappoint- 
ments. We must have the birds 

healthy, happy « c,o...oiicu— -o - , opason.

sperm formatio?i retrogrades gradu- 
ally, and the ofTspring, if any, is im- 
perfect. All the furnishings char- 
acteristic of a cock bird should be 
well developed, sickles, hackles, 
spurs, etc., as all these items show 
better than any other one thing if 
he is sexually mated. 

If there is any defect in the fe- 
males he is to be mated to, see that 
he is particularly strong in this re- 
spect, for if he is not, the difficulty 
will be increased in the next genera- 

Wherever he may be deficient, let 
it not be in health. This is so im- 
portant that I cannot forbear to 
again mention it here, he must be a 
strong, healthy, robust bird to give 

It is also well to remember that 
the male bird furnishes what we call 
"the fancy points'*, that is, he exerts 
a great influence in the way of color 
and fine feather, style and finish. 

It is also worthy of notice that if 
any gm\e defect is present in a 
male, he will transmit it to every one 
of the females to which he is mated, 
while if the same defect should be 
present in a female in his pen it will 
be limited to her progeny only. This 
shows the importance of using the 
greatest care in selecting the male 

In the selection of his mates use 
judgment in the start, and see to it 
that they are congenial one to the 
other, and after the mating is made 
up do not chance his mates. It gen- 
erally makes the male bird sulky, 
and if another female is supplied it 
will cause war in a minute, as the 
other females will abuse and perse- 
cute her. This of course, will keep 
the inmates of the pen in a turmoil 
till peace is again restored, but it is 
easy to see that such management is 
not conducive to fertile eg^s. 

A fit breeding male should be a 
fully matured male, a male that is 
well spurred, that spoils for a fight, 
that will fight to a finish and if de- 
feated crow his spite against his an- 
tagonist, dying. 

Such stuff as this makes the right 
kind of a breeder. He is ever on the 
alert, watching, guarding, calling the 
females and would starve first before 
he would satisfy his own hunger as 
long as he could get one of the fe- 
males to eat the last morsel. 

A strong crower, which means 
good, strong lungs, which in turn 
means less liable to disease, last on 
the roost at night and first off it in 
the morning, comb blood red and eyes 
bright, full of the spirit of animal 
life, clapping his wings incessantly, 
dancing before the females, spread- 
ing his wing and displaying his 
beauty to the ladies of his harem. 
This is the strong, physical breeding 
characteristics of a male fit to per- 
petuate a race of hardy, healthy

ance to many at any time and at 
every season, for all • should know 
that both poor hatches and poor fer- 
tility are caused outside the egg as 
many or more times than in them. 

In order to secure the best of fer- 
tility in eggs it is necessary to have 
strong, healthy breeding stock, stock 
that has vigor and strong constitu- 
tion. Unless the breeding birds are 
sound, healthy and in the best possi- 
ble condition for reproduction of 
their kind, satisfactory results can- 
not be obtained. Eggs from birds 
out of condition, either from in- 
breeding, improper food or unsani- 
tary surroundings will not produce 
fertile eggs. Neither will hens that 
are over fat produce fertile eggs. 

The number of hens to mate to a 
male varies according to the breed 
and the conditions under which the 
breeders are kept. Males of the 
smaller breeds can be mated to more 
females than those of the heavier 
breeds. Do not allow more than one 
male in the pen at the same time, as 
they will fight, and in various ways 
increase infertility. I practiced the 
use of males alternately in my breed- 
ing pens and find it a good way to 
get the best fertility in the eggs. I 
think it the best plan to mate up 
breeding pens early. By doing this 
the birds become acquainted and are 
friendly when eggs are wanted for 
hatching. After the pens are mated 
it is a good plan to test the eggs and 
if they do not prove fertile, look 
about for the cause and remedy it. 

Fowls on free range will produce 
a greater percentage of strongly fer- 
tilized eggs than those kept in close 
confinement, other things being 
equal. Give your breeders as large 
a run as possible for exercise, it is 
very essential to the health and vigor 
of the fowls and your breeders must 
be kept busy if fertile eggs and 
strong germs are desired. Fowls that 
are closely confined to limited quar- 
ters where they do not get exercise 
or have access to sunshine and fresh 
air, even though taken the best care 
of other ways, are almost certain 
to produce eggs low in fertility and 
the germs of weak vitality. One of 
the best methods of making the hens 
exercise is to have a deep litter of 
cut straw in your breeding pens and 
throw their grain in this and rake 
it over, and make them scratch for it. 

Another important item in the 
securing of strongly fertilized eggs 
is proper feeding of the breeding 
birds. Few stop to consider the im- 
portance of the influence of food on 
the breeding stock. Too stimulating 
foods that will force the breeders 
should be avoided, as they cause 
weaker germs. I have had the best re- 
sults by feeding a mixed grain ration, 
scattered in the litter for their morn- 
ing feed. For their noon feed I feed 
another feeding of this grain, but 
less. I am a firm believer in dry 
mash feeding and keep a dry mash in 

hoppers before the birds all 
Their night ration consists 
either cracked or whole 
mixed. About every otha 
place of the noon feed oJ 
feed cooked potatoes mash^ 
little bran mixed with thei 
this feed not only a cheap 
it keeps the fowls healthy , 
them a change. The value 
food as well as animal fo( 
be over-estimated. Green 
the form of cabbage, turnip 
carrots, cut clover and alfalf^ 
excellent. Grit, oyster slid 
charcoal should be where tk 
can get them at all times. 

Breeding birds should be 
in a comfortably and iit 
house. Fresh air is one of %^ 
important factors in obtaini^; 
fertile eggs that will hat<i^ 
strong chickens. Keep yourf 
houses well aired during thei 
do not keep them tightly ck 
night. A very good plan for 
lation at night is by means of 
covered windows. Care shi 
taken to keep the houses cl«

All for 

My good friend "Ted" Hale and Presi- 
dent "Tom" Kigg. of the American Poultry 
Association, have been judging chickens 
down south. "Ted" said that he never ate 
better food and he is surprised that land 
should sell so low in the country of "sweet 
potatoes and corn bread." 

"Ted" Hale found out a lot of things 
on his soutiiern trip, among them the fact 
that Ben E. Adams is a candidate for Con- 
gress. Partisan as be is, "Ted" is perfectly 
willing tu allow a Democrat like Adams to 
8it in the lower house of Oongress. The 
fact that Ben's district would send a Demo- 
crat to Congress any way is not mentioned 

by our Chicago friend. 

• • • 

The boll weevil and diversified farming 
has taught the south that the way to live 
good is nut to depend on cotton but to grow 
all the "goodies'^ that Dixie land is famous 
for. The South can grow anything that the 
lands of America will produce, from good 
soft wheat to hog and hominy. One can 
grow as good fowls in the south as in any 
bection of the United States and we who 
have strayed away from our old moorings 
would like to see the South come into ita 


• • * 

i'he fart that the people of the South are 
hospiinble is nothing new and the good 
meals that they set before the man from 
the North is not a new thing. The South 
has always lived better than the average 
people of America for the reason that build- 
ing up great wealth in the South has never 

been notable like the wealth of the North. 

• • * 

The Southerner believes in living today. 
He IS a God-fearing man and he tries to live 
as the Bible teaches and that is not to 
anticipate tomorrow but let today care for 


• • • 

When Moses was bringing the Israelites 
out of Egypt, manna rained down each day. 
Those who tried to gather enough to last 
over the week found that their sustenance 
failed them and only those who provided for 
each day fared well. This is true of the 
South. One can always get a living day by 
day in the South and there is little reason 
for saving to the extent of stinting one'a 

• e • 

As a boy I never went forth in the woods 
but what there was something that a boy 
could eat. Like our great Puget Sound 
country, it is said that when the tide is out 
the table is set. In others words Mother 
Nature has provided in our waters plenty 
of clams, lots of oysters and fish in abuud- 
ance and all we have to do is to get busy 
and gather what the Lord has get before us. 

• • • 

One of the discoveries that "Ted" made 
was the fact that Ben E. Adams would make 
a real good congressman. Now if a partisan 
like "Ted" can see good in a Democrat, 
would it not be a good idea for all of us 
poultrymen to get behind Ben and make 
him a congressman! We need some oi.e 
down in Washington who has a real interest 
in poultry and if we could elect Ben to 
Congress we would have a spokesman that 

could do us a lot of good. 

• • • 

I noticed in the papers that the mail car- 
riers are going to make a nurvey of the 
number of hous erown in the Unite'l States. 
That is a mighty good thing for the hog 
men. Now if the mail men can take a cen- 
sus of the hogs, why would it not be a good 

idea to also make a census of the poultry t 

• • * 

Suppose we had Ben Adams on the job 
when the Postmaster General got busy on 
the hogs. Ben could stop around to the 
"Captain's" office and suggest that in mak- 
ing that census that Postmaster General New 
also include poultry in the work. The car- 
rier, both rural and city, could have slips 
printed something like this. Number of 
hogs and number of pigs raised in 192.^, 
number of heng and number of fowls raised 
in 1923. This kind of census would show 
that the poultry industry was one. if nut 
the largest industry in the United States 
and I feel sure that Ben Adams would im- 
press that fact on Congress to the extent 
that the "Chicken man's" vote would be 
looked after the same as the politician tries 
to placate the general farmer. 

• • • 

We can eWt Ben Adams lust one way and 
that is to see that he gets the publicity 
necessary to bring him before his con- 

r\\A vou ever consider that

1 am in receipt of a letter from a reader 
in Now Hampshire who takes exce|»tii)n to 
my warniiif; about color of legs and beak in 
pu'kin^c out the layers. There i» no question 
but what k'Ks fade in yellow lejfped fowls, 
plumaee fades and the comb get.s a dull red 
iiLsteaa of a liright red. All kindu of col»)r 
fades, so do all flowers but when one con- 
tends that it is a sure si^n of hens laying 
because she has white legs, in that case 
the Orpingtons and White Minorcas should 
be the greatest layers that exist. Color of 
leers is hard to control. Soil conditions, feed 
and everything else goes to make legs fade. 
The yellow legged fowl, the one that carries 
the bright yellow leg is most often found 
running around a barn lot where it scratches 
in the manure of horses and other farm ani- 
mals. You find a yellow leg most often in a 
clay soil and where one has gravel and sandy 
soils, the legs are more apt to fade. There 
is something in soils that bleaches legs and 
one often tinds that condition in soils that 

are impregnated with alkali.

heard many arguments on the subject of 
l«>in? type but when the men who have 
been giving the greatest amount of study 
were called on to criticise the cuts for the 
Standard, they could not offer and did not 
offer any suggestions of how the present 
Standard cuts could be changed to make 
them conform to the so-called laying type. 
Mort Atkinson, who has given as much 


vigor, then I would be pleased to h«« 
one point it out. If they can. they wiE 

re this information than some young man 
I some school coming around and telling 
about what he has heard some one say

«•« a college degree. This was demon- 
SLted by the best secretary that the spe- 
u?tv Miibs ever had. I refer to no other 
Sn^A F Roir of the Single Comb White 
JSiorn Club. He worked in a college and 
rsav's in this month's Leghorn World, that 
I had occasion to hire a man to help around 
he fow?8 He found a good man that suited 
im ncelv and he recommended this man to 
h? facultv of his college, but as the young 
il. w had no college degree they would not 
live him a job. ^ . , 

Mr Rolf is resigning as secretary of the 
lehite Leghorn Club and that is a m.ghU 
lard blow to that good organization. A. F. 
iolf is one of the best secretaries any club 
Ser had and with the number of Sin«le 
3omb White Leghorn breeders in Anienca, 
Aev should have been able to give him a 
ilary se large that no feed organization 
I«uld have hired him. It is right here where 
ihe v^ecialty clubs fall down. They fail Ut 
Dly enough into their money coffers to k?ep 
rood secretaries on the job. The White Leg- 
Urn Club should have a hundred thousand 
■embers and then not get half those that 
are breeding this famous egg layer. If they 
would give a secretary enough money to 
keep him on the job every day in the year 
thev could easily build up the largest club 
la the world and it is a great mistake for 
ftke White Leghorn breeders to allow a man 
S Mr. Rolf's ability to get away from them.

The answer came from the chart. "Tes, she 
laid today, giving her 315 eggs in 357 
days." And, I replied, "that she stands 
a chance to lay tomorrow and the next day 
and if nothing happens she will lay right 
alon^ for some days." I saw that lady last 
evening and she told me that at the end of 
the 65 days the little beauty produced 322 
eggs and was still Ujlng. 

I will venture to say that tlje great layer 
mentioned above could beat, in the show 
room, fifty per cent of the Leghorn hens 
that will have blue ribbons tied on them 
this winter, under the boat judges in Amer- 
ica. In other words, here was a Standard 
type hen that had produced enough eggs to 
pay the feed cost of fifty hens for six 
months, vet in the same flock there was 
one hen that laid two eggs in twelve months 
and another hen that produced 62 eggs.

Oominents by Judge A. H. Emeh 
White Wyandottes brought out the larg- 
est class in the show, 131 birds; the most 
even lot of cock birds I have seen in a 
long time. The first cock, good shape and 
good color. Second cock, whitest in class 
loses to first on tail shape, not finished. 
The first hen, good condition and white as 
they grow. Second hen, another good one 
but not as white as first. The cockerels, 
first and second, were very close; first wins 
on head points and shape of wings. The 
first pullet was white as snow and very 
neat, good *hape and best conditioned bird 
in the show. First old pen had a rery eTen 
lot of females headed by a grand male. 
First Tonns pen was headed by the best 
finished male and a nice even bunch of pul- 
lets. The second was close up. 

Golden Wyandottes — First and second 
cock, first hen, first cockerel, first pullet- 
all real good ones. 

Silver Wyandottes — Some very good birds 
in all classes — first and second cock, first 
hen, first and second cockerel were the kind 
we like. First pullet, Tory fine open laoed 
bird, the beet laced female in the show. The 
first young pen, an easy winner. 

Anconas — A good lot. Some rery good 
hens and pullets in this class, well condi-* 
tioned. The first cockerel was the star of 
the Ancona class. 

Single Oomb Rhode Island Reds — First 
cock, well finished for a cock so early in the 
season, wins color special. Second cock, 
not finished in tail, Tery good body shape, 
wins shape special — good red color with a 
little black in hackle. First hen wins shape 
and color special. Second loses to first on 
shape and not quite so even in ahade of 
color. There were several other good hens 
in this class. First cockerel wins on shape 
of back and smooth finished feather — it was 
a little darker than we like shape special. 
Second cockerel loses on under color of 
neck. Third, fourth and fifth not as well 
finished as first and second. First pullet 
best colored female in the Single Oomb Red 
class — red to the skin, perhaps a shade light 
on surface. Second pullet another good one, 
a little short on legs. Third, fourth and 
fifth all good birds. First old pen. well 
matched. First young pen, very good even 
lot of pullets headed by a good shaped and 
colored male. 

Bemarks by Judge Minshall 

Single Comb Black Minorcas — The quality 
of this class was extra good, both in shape 
and color, showing a great improvement in 
evenness of type, col^r and also the size of 
combs are more uniform especially adopting 
them for our American winters in this part 
of the country. 

First cock, a wonderful colored bird, fine 
Minorca shape, good length of bark and nice 
carriage of tail. A good full breast and 
stands well on legs. A good comb, solid red 
face and good hazel eyes. 

Second cock, another good b'rd in body 
and tail carriage, good color, fails to first 
in shape of lobes and condition, not fully 
through moult. 

Third cock, good comb, good lobes, extra 
good color, good length of back, tail not 
fully grown. Fourth end fifth, both nice 
cocks but not in good show shape. 

First hen, almost a model for shape and 
color, good comb and lobes and nice car- 
riage. Second hen also a grand bird, beau- 
tiful lobes, good even color, rreat l*ngth of 
back, moA full breast, but not st her best 
ypt. Third h«»n, very mMf^h We i»ecnd. 
good lobes and comb, good back but like

• - • - • ' - Buff Plymouth Rocks— A small class but 

carriage. Good lobes and comb, good 
good eyes. Second cockerel, very muci 
same but loses to first for shorter back 
tail not fully out. Third, a good co 
one, nice head points. Fourth and ; 
also good ones. 

First pullet, fully grown, beautiful i- 
good shaped oody * about her only fit 
■hape of comb. The balance of puUetit 
not as fully grown but will make f 
hens, especially the fifth which is veryjt 
— she has grand color, great length o( i 
and good color of legs. 

Pens — I noticed some grand female 
the pens. 

Single Oomb White Leghorns — First t 
a grand shaped bird, a beautiful ik

tra fine comb, good color. Second cockii 
to first on shape of back, does not a 
quite as good a cushion and not in u f

cocks yery close. Third has better ik 
body and tail carriage. 

First and second hens, very clow, ! 
baring perfect head points, pure white,: 
shaped body and nice tail carriage. S« 
only loses to first on size. Third and fc 
another pair of good hens but not u 
ready for showing. Not very well ik 
but they show great quality when fully 
Fifth a very good hen. 

First cockerel^-K>ne of the best bsi 
males in this class, pure white, grand n 
and stands well on legs at all times. S» 
cockerel — I liked this bird very much, i 
tie more length of back than first bat It 
to first on head points only. Third in 
a grand cockerel but not the width of )f 
as first and second, good color. Fourth i 
fifth are also nice birds but not old est 
to be at their best. 

First pullet — a nice head, pure white, t 
cushion. Her only fault is she carri« 

E inched tail at times. Second and tt 
oth nice ones in color and shape but 
at their best. Second wins over third 
comb. Fourth and fifth hot near si »^

First old pen has a grand cock whieBT 
the deciding point over second which '". 
perhaps just a shade on first females. 

First young pen has a grand cockereU

The newly organized ''American Buff 
Brahma Club" has decided to hold its first 
annual club meet at the coming Madison 
Square Garden Poultry Show. January 23- 
27 1924. The show management did aot 
receive notice of the club's decision in time 
to include same in the premium list, but It 
is expected these announcements will come 
to the attention of enough live breeders to 
bring out a record entry in this new stand- 
ard variety of the "Grand Old Breed." The 
club has adopted as its object and slogan, 
"Boost the breed and help boom business 
for its breeders." . , ^ . 

The club offers for competition of members 
onlv four special ribbons, for best shaped 
male, best shaped female best colored male 
and best colored female. 

Marshall Fsrms. Inc.. of Marshsllton. Del., 
also offer a $25.00 silver championship cup 
for the first club member to win three of 
its special ribbons for the best cock. hen. 
cockerel, puHet and pen. to be awarded at 
the annual club meet each year until won 
three years fnot necessarily consecutive), 
points to count as per show rules. 

To be eligible to compete for these spe- 
cials applications ffr membership must be 
received by John Marshall, secretary pro 
tern. Marshallton. Del., previous to the show, 
and these names will be Included In the list 
of charter members and published In the club

The annual meeting of the Pennsylvania 

Ancona Club will be held In connection with 

the Pittsburgh Poultry Show at Pittsburgh, 

Pa.. January 14 to 19. 1924 and will offer 
some very attractive prises. 

The Pittsburgh Show is offering wonder- 
ful inducements for exhibits from our mem- 
bers and no breeder can afford to overlook 
the importance of mfaking at least a few 

We hope every member will strive to 
show at Pittsburgh even if it be but one or 
two birds each. 

Membership and Ancona World may be 
obtained by ueudiug one dollar to club sec- 
retary, C. E. Johnson, Route 3, Ligonier. Pa.

The egg exhibit that has been planned in 
connection with the State Farm Products 
Show, at Harrisburg. Pa., January 22 to 26, 

Kromises to be the largest that has ever 
een held. Last year there were some 300 
plates of eggs displayed at this show, with 
the farmer* of Hegins Valley in Schuylkill 
county Hending the largest exhibit from any 
one county. This county walked away with 
a beautiful silver loving cup, ten and one- 
half inches in height, which was presented 
by the Pennsylvania Sl»te Poultry Associa- 
tion. Schuylkill county was represented 
with 85 dozen eggs in 76 different entries. 
Out of these 76 entries, 29 received prizes. 
The sweepstakes prize for the best dosen 
white eggs in the show went to an exhibitor 
in Hegins Valley. 

This Egg Show is staged to encourage 
more farmers and poultrymen to send a 
"real" product to the market and will em- 
body many a valuable lesson for Pennsyl- 
vania farmers and poultrymen. The princi- 
pal aim of the exhibit this year will be to 
create a greater appreciation of the market 
demands. Too often Pennsylvania shippers 
ignore the dollar and cents value of a pro- 
duct that is strictly uniform as to color, 
size and quality. It puzzles a great man^ 

foultrymen to explain how it is that Cali- 
ornia eggs produced two or three weeks 
ago, taking a week in transit, can appear 
on our eastern markets tomorrow and com- 
mand a higher price than the Pennsylvania 
product. It is not the fault of the Penn- 
sylvania hen, neither is it because the Cali- 
fornia hen lays a better egg than our birds, 
nor that the California farmer has a "pull" 
with our eastern dealers. The secret, if it 
may be so called, of the California system, 
is that they ship a clean, uniform product 

in neat, clean containers.

The Sixth Annual Milwaukee National 
Poultry and Pigeon Show, held at the Mil- 
waukee Anditorium, November 25 to 29, 
1923, was a great success, the show was 
well balanced and of high quality, breeders 
from everywhere exhibited their birds, and 
in most all breeds and varieties competition 
was keen and plenty of it. 

As you entered the hall you were amaied 
at the beautiful display, the pigeons in a 
semi-circle, then the bantams, a number of 
display coops, the pen coops in the center 
and the singles branching from these across 
the width 180 by 208 feet all single decked, 
giving you a clear view of the entire hall 
beautifully decorated to please the eye; a 
scene long to be remembered and cherished 
by sll. 

The Barred Rock class was of exceptional 
high quality and large. Theo. Dann ex- 
hibited the first oock, this bird was in gooil 
plumage and had excellent barring. Hack- 
ett and Altman Bros., showed some very 
good birds but they were not finished 
enough to do any serious harm to F. 0. 
Zeimer, of Waconia. Minn.: he received the 
display reward in this variety. 

The White Rock class was a beauty, tbe 
well finished and conditioned birds of H. 
W. Halbach A Sons, of Waterford. Wis., arr 
in a class by themselves and fortunate, in- 
deed was H. H. Paulsen to get second cock 
and U. R. Steil. fourth cock. Brismere 
Farms showed some good birds and will 
soon break into the ribbons if they keep at 
it. The silver cup donated by the Milwau- 
kee Association of Commerce for best dis- 
play was awarded to H. W. Halbach A Sons. 
W. A. Fuchs donated a silver cup to the 
best pen of White Plymouth Rocks which 
was also taken by H. W. Halbach A 8'>ns. 

A great class of Silver Penciled Rocks 
was shown by John Scharhag and John 
promises to make this class again as large 
bv next year and have competion worth 

The Silver and R"ff Wyandotte classes 
were weak. The Golden and Partridre 
Wynndotte and Partridge Rocks were well 

The White Wyandotte class was large and 
of good quality with honors well divided. 
The Rhode Island Red class was a large 
representative class of the best breeders 
^rom all parts of the state: a few back- 
''^♦fers ren their bird- <n v.''*h the b'" fal-

A New 

Discovery Tha 

Prevents Leg 

Weakness and 

Reduces Death 

Losses of Baby 












SCIENCE has at last made a discovery that marks thei 
advance m preventing death losses of young chicks 
been made m the past 50 years-a discovery that now 
possible to grow big, healthy, vigorous chicks at any ^ 
the year— m Wmter as well as in May. I Tk 1 i* 

.y^lI'Vl ^r^^opment of any phase of the poultry indl PPPtPPtlOll 

the past half century, means so much to poultry raisers* * ^* IVVllVMl 

new and remarkable discovery— you can now feel r( 
sure with the aid of this latest gift of Science that you 
nearly all of the chicks you hatch or buy. 

For years the leg weakness scourge of early j 
hatched chicks has been the thing that has i 
•^ poultry raisers of a big share of their profits 




^jrr h'.. 



We ve taken Cod Liver Oil and combined it 
with other health giving ingredients and are 
now offering to poultrymen in Ful-0-Pep 
Chick Starter a feed that our research depart- 
ment have proved reduces deaih losses to the 
mmimum and makes chicks grow and thrive 
in the cold winter and spring months just as 
\t they were out of doors in the warm May 
sunshme with all the bugs and tender grasses 
that they could eat. The Cod Liver Oil is so 
thoroughly mixed by our own process that it 

I? f?!"£'®^l*^.*.^''*^ by other ingredients. 
FulO Pep Chick Starter is perfectly dry —not 
oily or gummy. 

Just as FulO-Pep Egg Mash entirely 
changed the old method of feeding laying 
hens, so will Ful - O - Pep Chick Starter made 
accordmg to this latest Scientific discovery 
entirely revolutionize the raising of young 
chicks. The old discouraging experiences are 
ail a thing of the past. 

For more than 50 years scientists have been 
this problem— at last it has been solved! Thevi 
covered that Cod Liver Oil, being extremely^ rich a 
Vitammes, when combined with other health civiw 
ents overcomes leg weakness and produces such s

for baby chicks, making it possible to raise chicks in

By Prof. H. R. Lewi. 

Here you have somethinfj that you esn apply. You 
Harry Lewis, if not personally, you hsTs foms to know" 
pretty well by reading Everybodys every month where v 
rogtilarity he "(Vghes up" the very things you need 
your poultry keeping. For March this feature article (i 
fusely illustrated) is goin^ to be about as timely s« t 
can wish. We have read it, perhaps our judgment will 
of value, so we want to say it is the best article on 
and raising of baby chicks we ever read. 

By Helen Dow Whitaker • 

Well, how do you like Mrs. Whitaker's article in t 
number of Everybodys t It just seems that we "feel" 
answers of thousands of our readers all over this broad „ 
— that answer "Great." Yes, Mrs. Whitaker is going to !i! 
very much to write for Everybodys and we are glad to l,i 
her. While she is a very busy woman and may miss a f 
numbers after Ai)ril, she will be a regular of next Fall. T 
title of March story gives you an idea of what to expect a, 
told in this fine woman's characteristic and pleasing way-i 
no practical poultry raiser in the country is more qailiSiJ 
than Helen Dow Whitaker. 


By Harold F. Barber 

There is something about Mr. Barber's articles th< 
make them stick in one's mind and at the same time d 
the "whole works" intended. You know our job here 
to know what you want, what "Bill" Jones wants or ne<_ 
and this applies to all of Everybodys' family. You donl 
always tell us but we work it out on "pulse feeling" tW 
readers in general. Our big job is to supply you or rsth« 
assign some writer or other to the task at hand. You liki 
Barber, you cannot help it. because he helps you ; and bei^ 
one of the closest students, we ever came in contact with, « 
poultry subjects — and gained out of practical knowled^ 
All we have to say is don't miss "The Superlative Hen" ii 
March Everybodys. 


By D. E. Hale 

Questions and answers get awful stale. To us they usually like stock reports to a person not interested, so ti 
get away from that cut and dried sameness — when reil 
questions come in, we say to "Ted" Hale "Answer thii 
and make a real story that will do a let of others good be- 
sides this fellow who is seeking constructive information." 
Evidently you like our way as a lot of you tell us so every 
time one of these stories ai)pears by Mr. Hale. The Msrck 
questions, as answered, are indeed of interest to an army d 
you just now.

the 150 styles of Fencing, Gates, Barbed Wire, Steel Posts, Roofing. Shingles and Paint. You 
will find it contains the biggest bargains that you have ever had offered you. 
And when I say Bargains, I mean just that— the biggest values for the least money. I have 
trimmed prices on every item in this big book to bed rock, but I have not reduced the qual- 
ity one iota. I am still delivering the same dependable, double-galvanized, 
open-hearth, rust -resisting fencing, gates and steel posts— the same heavy, 
durable, guaranteed ASPHALT roofing and the same pure Wear-Best 
Paints that have brought me over 800,000 farmer customers.

extraordinary values I still pay the freight. That takes out all the guess work about freight

Successful Poultrymen 

do business year after year at a profit. They do not trust anything to 
guesswork. They are definite in their stock and methods. If you will 

Buy Lord Farms Chicks 

there will be no guesswork as to the quality of the stock you will receive, 
and if you will just get our new 1924 catalog and study our methods con- 
tained in this, there will be no question as to the results you will get by 
adopting the same. Lord Farms customers are numbered by the tens of 
thousands and are constantly growing. 

American Letfborns Always 

The best Leghorn blood in the world is in 
our stock, and the best has always been 
American. When other farms were mixing 
up their blood with English Leghorns, we 
stood pat on the American strains, with the 
consequence that today the American Leg- 
horn is the Queen of all Leghorns. 

Stocli and Standardized Methods 

That is what you can bank on from the Lord 
Farms. A dependable business farm to 
trade with, — a place where you can get good 
chicks this year, next year, and ten yean 
from nov^'. 

Better Lenborn Chicles Than Ever 


Our 1924 crop of chicks will carry more 
genuine high record laying blood than ever 
before. Tremendous high average egg pro- 
duction will surely be reported next season 
from our present matings. 

We are booking orders now for Baby Chicks for immediate delivery, all one strain, not 
picked up job lot stock, but of uniform quality. We have the largest capacity and are 
better able to serve you in any quantity of real quality chicks of one breed and strain 
than any other farm east of the Rocky Mountains. 

CXir prices are not Hatchery Prices, but you'll find that in the long run the 
best are the cheapest. Here are the 1924 prices. 

In Our Strain 

you get good size, good looks, large eggs, 
and large quantities of eggs. Our strain has 
every quality to appeal to the intelligent

Operating the 
Modern Incubator 

Good chicks means winning half the battle in successful 

poultry keeping. One cannot have good chicks 

without they are hatched properly 

By Professor HARRY R. LEWIS, Associate Editor 

- ^.' ■■' 


HILE selection, careful mating and breeding are 
fundamental in insuring a high quality hatching 
egg, good live vigorous, husky chicks which live 
and grow well,' are dependent in large measure 
upon the efficiency of the incubation process. 
There are so many kinds of incubators, and so many rules 
for operating them, that the amateur is apt to be con- 
fused and even the professional mammoth incubator 
fperator is sometimes up against it to know just what 

¥)nditons to create to insure ideal hatching conditions, 
he solution of the incubation problem must, after all, 
be up to the individual operator for the fact that every 
incubator cellar is slightly different, requiring different 
•mounts of ventilation and different handling of the 
machines. There are, however, a few definite principles 
Which can be laid down which apply under all conditions, 
f nd which if carefully followed, lead the way to success- 
ful hatching. But let us remember first that we must 
put good eggs into the incubator if we expect satisfactory 
results. So often poor hatches are attributed to ^a^^^y 
incubators or to faulty operation, when the hen could 
|iot have done any better herself, due in the majority of 
leases to the breeders themselves being out of condition 
['due to the forced production, lack of natural range con- 
ditions or to disease. Given good eggs, the following 
points will help insure their efficient hatching. 

The Incubator Cellar 
We hear so much about this incubator and that incu- 
bator and the efficiency of one over the other. Did you 
ever stop to think that so often all bad results in arti- 
ficial incubation are due primarily to the place in which 
the incubators are operated? There are three funda- 
mental things which must be present in a suitable incu- 
bator cellar. First of all, a uniform temperature and 
, means of controlling the temperature to a point which 

is most desirable. If the incubator itself is subject to 
extremes of temperature on the outside, it is bound to 
vary more or less in the temperature readings in the in- 
cubator compartment. Furthermore, great changes in 
temperature makes the operation of running the incuba- 
tor extremely laborious and nerve racking on the opera- 
tor Even the best incubator perfectly installed, will do 
better if it can be run in a more or less uniform tempera- 
ture condition. What is the best temperature you ask? 
This will vary somewhat for different types of incuba- 
tors but a room temperature of from sixty to seventy 
de^ees is probably ideal, both for the ease and efficiency 
of operation. . , ^ ^ ;« 

Another important factor in *f '"'="''f ,<";„^°°Ve 
that it shall be easily and completely ventilated. The 
hatchinK of a large number of eggs in a smal compact 
room means that large amounts of carbondioxide gas .s 
bei^ eiven off continually. This gas must be earned 
out ff the building and replaced with fresh oxygen-laden 
ah- This process of change of air must be going on 
Continually, yet it must be brought about without -y 
drafts blowing directly upon the machines Oftentimes 
fncubators arf operated in the basement of a residence

air which enters the cellar to be deflected upward against

the ceiling, from which place it gradually circulates 
throughout the room, not blowing directly into the cellar 
and on the machines. The outer sash should be hinged 
at the top and open out. This further breaks the draft, 
but does not hinder the free entrance of the air, and 
at the same time has a tendency to keep storms of rain 
or snow from beating into the building. The outer sash 
call well be whitewashed on the under-side to keep out 
direct rays of sunlight, for if direct rays of sunlight 
shine through on the incubator, the portion upon which 
it strikes, or the section of the mammoth upon which it 
hits is apt to run a number of degrees warmer. The 
space between the two window sash should be provided 
with a frame which fits the window casing securely 
covered with one-quarter inch mesh cellar window wire. 
This will prevent the entrance of rodents such as rats, 
mice, etc. It will keep stray cats out of the building 
and insure the protection of the machines. Oftentimes 
a stray cat entering an incubator cellar and walking over 
the tops of the machine, will so damage the self-regulat- 
ing device that a 
hatch may be 
ruined. Another 
excellent piece of 
equipment is a 
frame made to 
set into the win- 
dow between the 
two sash, covered 
with cheese cloth. 
The use of this 
frame breaks the 
draft of air en- 
tering the build- 
ing, causing the 
incoming air to 
be diffused and 
to come in slow- 
ly. This general 
arrangement of 
windows is prac- 
tically ideal and 
should be applied 
to all rooms 
where incubators 
are operated.

which does not admit of the natural exit of the heavy 
gases which accumulate near the floor, it is a good plan 
to install a simple system of ventilation whereby one or 
more pipes either galvanized or wooden box pipes pass 
up through the building and out into a cupola in the roof 
These pipes should be carried to within one foot of the 
floor, and should be provided with dampers so that they 
can be opened or closed at the will of the operator. 
These will insure the proper removal of the impure air, 
allowing the fresh air to come in in abundance and take 
its place through the window. 

Then the question of the moisture content in the 
cellar itself is of equal significance. Eggs seem to 
hatch better in an atmosphere which is quite moist, not 
exceedingly dry. This factor is not so important as it 
used to be, because all modern incubators are equipped 
with moisture appliances, which make it possible to add 
moisture to the machine itself. One advantage for locat- 
ing an incubator in a building which is partly submerged 
below the surface, is the uniform temperature which 
prevails, and secondly, that a building partly below 
ground is apt to be more uniformly moist than is a 
building above ground. See to it, however, that the 
room in which your incubator is operated can be pro- 
vided with moisture at will. Then there are a number

the thermometers at least once a year by placing^ P^^^ent eggs from chilling. In trapnesting, the pen must 
together in the center of one compartment of otai visited approximately every hour from dawn to dusk 
chine, and take readings every ten minutes for an^j 
or so, changing the positions (Continued on pag«l" 

to release the hens trapped in the nests. As each hen is 
released, the number on her leg band is written in pencil 
upon the egg and the egg is taken from the nest before 
the trap is opened to the next layer. No egg is left in 
the trapnest when the hen that laid it is released. Care 
must be taken to see that no two females in the same 
mating wear leg bands of duplicate numbers; also, if 
more than one breeding pen is mated, it is advisable to 
write upon each egg the number of the pen to later 
Identify the male that fertilized the egg. A record should 
be kept for each breeding pen showing the leg band num- 
ber of the male in the pen and of each female mated to 
h.m. If one is interested in production records, trap- 
nest record sheets can be purchased from Everybodys 
Poultry Magazine Publishing Company for a few pennies 
each and upon these record sheets can be recorded quickly 
for each hen each egg laid and date of the month. From 
these sheets, month totals and year totals of the lay of 
each hen are computed. Even with good trapnests and 
good care, egg3 are occasionally laid with doubt or un- 
certainty as to identification. With even a shadow of a 
doubt clinging to it, that egg must go to market and not 
to the hatch. Pedigree breeding involves too much labor 
and gives results of too great value to have all vitiated 
by even a single doubt or uncertainty at the source. If 
a female escapes from her pen where it is possible that 
service from another male than her pen male could have 
been received by her, then for three weeks at least, her 
eggs must have no part in the pedigree hatch. 

Having made certain of the identity of the hen that 
laid each egg and of the male that fertilized it and hav- 
ing a definite record of these two facts written upon the 
shell of each egg, the third step is to proceed to incubate 
the eggs as usual up to the eighteenth day of incubation. 
If an incubator is used for hatching, the eggs may be 
placed upon the trays without thought of keeping eggs 
from any one hen or pen in a lot by themselves during 
the process of turning eggs because we plan on the 
eighteenth day to sort and seggregate them for the hatch. 
Mix them up if you please, up to that time. If hens are 
used for hatching it will be found necessary to renew 
the pencil markings upon the eggs perhaps more than 
once before the eighteenth day as the oil upon the hen's 
feathers and her rubbing of them over the eggs are quite 
sure to obliterate your record upon some or all of the 
eggs. Note also this bit of my own experience in pedi- 
gree hatching with hens. When I have, let is say for 
illustration, eight eggs from hen No. 10, pen No. 1 and 
five eggs from hen No. 6, pen No. 1, the temptation is to 
place these together under one hen until the chicks pip 
and then seggregate by putting Broody No. 2 on the job 
to take the eggs of one of the two hens and complete the 
hatch in order that we may know of each chick which of 
the two hens laid the egg from which it hatched. But 
my experience in doing this has many times been dis- 
astrous because the hen the first week of incubation sits 
close and the third week she rises upon the eggs to give 
the added fresh air the growing chicks need and by so 
doing saves the chicks from being smothered in the shell 
or crushed by the broody. 

Test, turn, and cool eggs for the pedigree hatch up to 
the eighteenth day of incubation exactly as you would 
for any hatch. Before that day make ready a record for 
each tray as follows: (Continued on page 210)

really is. Standing in 

the "Great Garden," the historic as well as the most fa- 
mous of all exhibition halls, with its flag-draped sides and 
roof, you hear the crow of the cock and the cackle of the 
hen — then realize that here before you are the chosen 
thousands of feathered beauties entered in contest for 
the world's greatest honors. They have come from Coast 
to Coast, from Canada and from over the ocean, all with 
the one purpose in view — to win; but whether to win or 
not they are the chosen representatives of our Standard 
breeds and varieties and as such carry the merit that has 
yearly insured poultry prog- 
ress and has made poultry 
breeding a leader among the 
great industries of our coun- 

The claim is made that 
yearly the world's best are 
exhibited here, this is true to 
a far greater extent than 
some are willing to admit. 
The breeders fully appreciate 
that it takes their very best 
to win here, they realize this 
and after you once have seen 
their winners at other shows, 
you want to come here to see 
those reserved for The Gar- 
den, then you have seen their 
best, without question.

WITH a record of seven hundred 
and eleven more entries than last 
year, this 1924 Garden Show was 
a fitting climax to the most successful 
poultry show season in history. The 
marvelous quality classes with balance 
and fierce competition assures highest 
honor for the victors and great credit for 
the unsuccessful whose quality entitled 
them to a try for these greatest honors. 
The New York Show management again 
proved its efficiency and has renewed its 
hold upon the good will of the exhibitors 
and the public alike. The exhibit was 
superbly arranged with coops in single 
tiers, wide aisles and draped benches as- 
suring to every entry equal chance in 
judging and for public view. The dis- 
plays of incubators, feeds and poultry ap- 
pliances, the largest and most complete 
ever seen. New records for sales and at-

a truly great and most worthy ambition; it is, the one 
thing above all else that has made this exhibit supreme. 

Ever since attending our first New York Show, nearly 
30 years ago, we have been duly impressed with a feature 
most notable. The New York Association has been com- 
posed, from the first to this day, of capable fanciers and 
breeders who have ever been staunch supporters of 
Standard quality and breeding. They have ever played 
but one tune, over and over again, through all these years 


improve and finally in 1874 met* 
formed the American Poultry Association. They P 
the breeders a Standard and at the same time paveF' 
try a standing with quality breeding, uniformity of sbs? 
size and quality; greater production possibilities ^^- 
has resulted into an industry valued at over a bilHo"? 
dollars yearly, an industry that no set or corporation t^ 
buy or control, one that will ever remain in the hands 
our millions to their advantage. 

The Barred Plymouth Rock 
class with the Iniperial "Ring- 
lets" tgain competing brought 
happiness to the heartti of 
poultry lovers and again ans- 
wered the question of suprem- 
acy in breeding. Mr. Thomp- 
son, in the strongest kind of competition, added more 
honor to his achievements and again won every prize in 
every class with a line of birds of unquestioned quality. 

In White Plymouth Rocks the opinion prevailed gener- 
ally that this was the best class ever shown at The Gar- 
den. We won't di.spute this, it was a wonder class and 
the veteran Frank H. Davey made the most substantial 
record of his career. Condition, with quality, shape and 
sameness, was in plain evidence here in every one of 
the 128 coops. 

Buff, Partridge and Columbian Plymouth Rocks were 
seen in superior classes. Type in its highest form was 
a feature. 

Silver Wyandottes, a choice class with famous birds 
and famous breeders competing. White Wyandottes, a 
marvelous class; the size, shape and condition of these 
birds was commended on every side. Heads showing 
extra well. Buffs, a rich, beauty class with the best of 
color and true Wyandotte forms. Partridge and Colum- 
bian classes, very strong and of a sameness in marking 
that was good to see. 

For years the Single Comb Rhode Island Reds have 
Wn a banner clars here. This year 167 birds were en- 
tered for New York honors and they had the makings en- 
titling them to compete. At this writing the awards are 

not posted. You will find them complete in this issue. 
Rose Comb Rhode Island Reds, a large class with im- 
proved heads and fine type predominating. 

Nearly 200 Jersey Black Giants exhibited their size 
and quality here to the satisfaction of their breeders and 
friends. The interest this rather new (although old) 
variety has created was seen here and the general im- 
provement the birds show in like is commendable. 

The grand old favorite Light Brahmas — magnificent in 
size and supreme in color and markings — were here in 
goodly numbers; they have that captivating quality that 
endures. Dark Brahmas were never better than seen this 
year here and at Boston. 

The Cochin exhibit was the best seen here for years. 
The great size and the beautiful color of these birds was 
most pleasing. 

Black Langshans were another superior class of very 
superior birds. 

Single Comb White. Leghorns formed the best quality 
class of birds we have ever seen here. In every class 
there was quality of highest order with condition and 
finish supreme. In size it was the banner class of the 

show with 236 birds exhibited. 
The size and carriage of the 
birds was highly appreciated. 
In Single Comb Brown Leg- 
horns, the Grove Hill birds 
were missed for we like to see 
all the good ones competing 
together. The birds seen here 
were fine, very fine and a 
great credit to this grand old 
variety that ever will appeal 
strongly to breeders with an 
equal love for beauty and 
worth in poultry. 

Single Comb Buff Leghorns 
were also a monster and 
beauty class with very i^trong 

Rose Comb White and 
Brown, excellent classes. The 
Whites very choice and of 
rarest Leghorn type. 

Single Comb Black Minor- 
cas, one of the feature classes 
with several famous strains 
competing. The size, quality 
and general condition of these 
birds was good to see. It is 
evident that they are in able 
Anconas, in Single and Rose Combs, were popular 
classes. In the Single Combs, the entry and quality was 
superior with improved type, fine size and carnage and 
splendid mottling features. 

Orpingtons in Buff, White and Black, massive m size 
and of soundei;t color were here in abundance. 

Blue Andalu<ians, Dark Cornish, Speckled Sussex, Sil- 
ver Spangled Hamburgs, Campines and several other va- 
rieties formed choice classes. 

The exhibit of turkeys and waterfowl were one of the 
lar-est ever i^een here and no doubt one of the best. 
Bantams were a great show in themselves, and pigeons a 
most wonderful display of quality. 

Notes of the Show 
Five minutes after his arrival, Frank Piatt found a 
large, fine, brown shelled egg in the coop of a prize 
Barred Rock hen. How conrie? ^ 

It was most pleasing^to aglin see the "Ringlet" Barred

won th;m too. The best of everything i.expec^^^^^^^^^^^

The Housewife and a Few Hens' Some Thoughts on Mating 

By H. H. COLLIER, Associate Editor 

|EBRUARY comes with its rain and cold that causes 
lots of trouble in the poultry yard if we are not 
ready for it. This is the month when one looks 
back towards winter and forward to spring. It 
is the month when we are supposed to get out 
our early chickens. The February chick is the one that 
will mature those big fine cockerels that will take the 
blue ribbons at the early fall fairs and at the same time 
be the equals to yearling cocks as breeders next spring. 
The early hatched cockerel is about right to go with the 
March and April pullet in the show room. Pullets al- 
ways mature much faster than cockerels. The cockerel 
is longer getting those nice sickle feathers and tail coverts 
that go to make the well furnished fowl. 

If you have not already set hens, now is the time to 
do so. Better get a small incubator and not depend on 
the hens. It is only those hens that commence to lay 
the first of January and the later part of December that 
are apt to set. Some time the old three year old hen 
that started early will get broody, but as a rule the hens 
are laying their best and few get broody. 

This is the month to plant early lettuce for the young 
chicks. Where one has a brood house with glass front, 
it will be an easy matter to make a trough along the 
floor below the windows. By using good soil that has 
been fertilized one can soon have tender lettuce grow- 
ing. They can protect their lettuce with inch mesh wire 
in front or over the top of the trough in which the let- 
tuce is planted. Green food to begin with gets the young 
stock off fine and gives the vitamines that go for health 
and vigor. 

If you have no brooder house, you can plant boxes in 
front of the kitchen window or in any place where the 
growing greens can get the sunlight and not be cold 
enough for the ground to freeze. Freezing weather will 
not kill lettuce but it will so stunt its growth as to make 
it come too slow to be used when wanted. 

Buy a good oats sprouter and sprout oats for the young 
and cover the boxes with inch mesh wire and allow the 
chicks to pick off the tender shoots and not get enough 
fibre to choke them. The hulls of the oats is not good 
for baby chicks but the tender shoots from the oats are 
fine for them. 

Have a hopper of fine grit where the young chicks can 
get their fill. Keep a hopper of finely crusheJ charcoal 
for the youngsters and feed lots of sour milk. Be care- 
ful that the fountain for the milk is so made that the 
youngsters cannot get into the milk. Have the fountain 
so made that they can get their little beaks in but no 
part of their head. Little chicks that get stuck up with 
sour milk are not good to look at and at the same time 
the cold milk often chills them. Dampness must always 
be avoided with baby chicks and especially so when the 
weather is chilly and damp. 

Gather the eggs often on cold days. Eggs that stay 
too long in the nest are liable to get broken or be 
frozen. Frozen eggs will break and thereby spoil them 
for either hatching or selling on the market. 

When you take a hen off the setting nest, clean the 
nest and burn the old straw. Paint the nest with a good 
liquid lice killer and the nest will be ready for the next 
setter. Where a hen shows signs of being restless when 
hatching, take away those baby chicks that are dry and 
put them in a basket near the fire. If you have a fire 
place, the hearth is an ideal place provided you do not 
get them too warm. By the kitchen stove where the fire 
is kept going is another good place. Keep the babies 
warm until the mother hen gets through hatching and at 
night give the chicks back to the mother hen on the nest, 
that is unless you run fires all night, in that case you 
can keep them in the basket. Let the mother hen .stay 
on the nest until the baby chicks are strong and then 


place them in their coop. Unless the coop be one 
gives good shelter and keeps out the dampness, hav« 
baby chick coops under a shed. A lean-too, piQj^ 
on three sides is ideal and let it open to the direr 
from which you have the least bad weather. On } 
Sound the bad weather comes from the south, west 
north. The east front is best as very little bad wet 
comes from that direction e.xcept when it snows d 
is very seldom). For the east or middle west, j 
recommend the southern exposure as there is lots of 
and very little bad weather comes from that direr 
when it is cold.

and not higher than sixty.

Where you find an extra fat (Continued on page 1"| bave before he can expect to breed superior birds — he 

must have a mental picture of what he is after before 
he can hope to attain it. 

Now, in order to apply this ideal, he must cultivate 
observation. He must not only look and keep looking 
but he must see when he does look. "Unseeing eyes" 
have no place in the work of mating up poultry, for we 
know that every bird has defects, and these defects, as 
well as the good points of the birds, must be observed 
and appreciated. One cannot cultivate observation too 
much for after he believes himself very observing he 
will be startled to find how many things he does not 
see. Then, in mating up, one must not become fascinated 
by the good points of a bird to the exclusion of the de- 
fects. The best bird you have is apt to be a pet and to 
excite your profound admiration; this is a good thing 
because it shows enthusiasm but you must not let it run 
away with you. The bird has faults and you must be 
able to see them and to give them as much weight as 
his good qualities— getting "stuck" on certain birds so 
that you are blind to their faults is a very bad thing and 
will spoil many a well directed effort. Treat each bird 
like another and consider that each is a cog in the 
machine only — to be used or not as it has the necessary 
elements that you wish to employ in the business of 
putting together a pen that will produce offspring that 
are better than the parents. 

If anything, try to look more for defects than for 
good points — these generally show for themselves. 

Breeding counts tremendously in poultry. Should 
you be in the position where you have kept records of 
the breeding of your birds it will be a wonderful assist- 
ance in dealing with the breeders at mating time. Some 
poor looking hens are excellent breeders when mated to 
the proper males and that is because they are well bred 
and have a long line of good ancestors to fall back on. 
Such birds, when mated in line, that is with stock that is 
related in blood, will give wonderful results and line- 
breeding is the only way in which progress— real, lasting 
progress— can be made. If you have a line on a certain 
male or a certain female, because of your records of the 
previous season you can see just what mistakes you 
made with this bird before and can aim to correct them 
during the next year. If the previous mating has been 
satisfactory stick to it and get more stock of the same 
quality; should there be some faults that you believe 
you ca;i correct see if you have a bird that does not 
have these faults so that the two can be put together this 
season and even better progeny result. 

Should you find yourself in the position of knowing 
nothing of either the previous ancestry or the breeding

Are You Planning On 
Hatchable Eggs? 

By D. E. HALE, Associate Editor 


^11^. J. H. PETHERBRIDGE, who is a good deal of a 
I prophet as well as a wise man in other directions, 
says that beginners are most apt to go wrong 
through a tendency to "rely too confidently on 
the written word, overlooking the possibility 
that the written word may be tinged by self-interest, or 
the output of one who rides a hobby and sees nothing 
beyond his horse's head." He goes on to say that many 
a one writes to him for written advice about something 
which they could get much better by word of mouth 
from some one right at home with the subject of their 
inquiry. It is true that a beginner wants to read definite 
instructions, and he would rather read them, get them 
in a black-and-white form that he can cut out or paste 
up on the wall, than to merely be told by some one who 
ought to know. Doubtless the psychology is a variant 
of the old saying, "A pro- 
phet is without honor in his 
own country," or as a strip 
cartoonist used to have it, 
"They all look good when 
they're far away." If we 
talk to some one, he is only 
one person of thousands, 
but if we read the word as 
written by some one we 
don't know and can't see, 
then it is authority. Well 
do I remember in my own 
early chicken-raising days, 
being puzzled as to what 
temperature to start my lit- 
tle box brooder at? No- 
where could I find any tem- 
perature laid down for the 
little day-old fluffs I read 
about a hundred letters 
from different people on 
how they raised their chick- 
ens; not one gave the in- 
formation I sought, but from 
all the accumulated mass of 
evidence, I was able to set- 
tle on the fig^ure of 96 de- 
grees, for a start, and then 
drop the temperature one 
degree a day for a couple 
of weeks. I find most peo- 
ple start at about 100 de- 

of hatchability of eggs kept for varying periods 
incubating. He doesn't give data as to temperature 
other conditions under which the eggs were 
and not very many eggs were incubated which were 
weeks old or more; but the figures seem to show 
roughly speaking eggs are as good up to about 
seventh day as when laid. (64% to 68%.) Then 4 



\ST spring was one of the worst in a great many 
* years for hatching chicks. It didn't make much 
difference whether you were using old hens or 
incubators. The early hatches were simply no 
good and many could not account for it. Later 
season hatches improved and many again won-

don't work, you'll have no one to blame but yourself; 
and in a business where there is so much seemingly con- 
tradictory testimony as there is in chicken raising and 
poultry keeping, I do believe it is the safest way. Read, 
read, and read some more. Weigh each man's testimony 
as to how much you believe he knows about his subject, 
then form your ovim conclusions. When I went to High 
School many years ago, we had a wise old fox for a 
physics teacher. When examination time came, he would 
counsel us, "If you don't know the answer to a ques- 
tion — don't guess; form a shrewd judgment." That's 
what we should do; read, read, then form a "shrewd 
judgment." (b)

to produce you good, hatchable eggs nor strong, sturdy

The winners at the fat stock shows are conditioned to 
win. Some of those baby beeves were dreams for meat 
and fat, but they had probably never had anything but 
milk. The draft horse conditioned to show is in no con- 
dition to breed. The racing stallion or mare is not bred 
when in racing condition. The same rules can be ap- 
plied to poultry.

of March-hitdf she has used up her vitality in producing eggs. The egg 
that does not contain plenty of vitality is not going to 
produce many chicks, nor strong, husky chicks. There 
is a great difference in fertility and hatchability and it 
is the latter that we want. 

The baby chick hatcheries are becoming good markets 
for egg farmers. They have been badly stung in the 
past by buying eggs from high producers on a fertility 
guarantee only to find that while the eggs were fertile 
they were low in hatchability. The hatchery men now 
know the difference and you will hear them talking more 
about hatchability than about fertility. 

These hatchery men want eggs from hens that have 
had plenty of range and contact with old Mother Earth.

range hens. 

Now if this hatchery field opens up another avenue of 
sales for the poultry raiser whereby he can get as good 
price for his eggs in the spring for hatching as he did in 
the winter for table use, then it is a good field to cater 
to and pay some attention to. 

In our opinion, an ideal method would be to keep the 
hen.s and pullets separate. Force the pullets for egg pro- 
duction the first year so as 10 get their production rec- 
ords, but do not use any of the eggs for incubation. Let 
the hens take it easy and instead of feeding egg mashes 
and other forcing feeds during the fall and winter, feed 
them good hard grain and make them exercise to get it. 
Feed plenty of good, succulent (juicy) green feed, and 
get them built up for producing hatchable eggs. They 
must store the vitality in their bodies and then when 
they do begin to lay and are properly mated, they ought 
to produce eggs that will not only hatch well but also 
produce a strong, sturdy chick that will thrive and do 
well right from the start. 

Personally, we would confine the pullets closer, use 
electric lights, feed for egg production, trapnest and 
then the next year select for the hens to be kept over 
those that had made the best winter egg records the 
previous winter. The poor layers could be culled and 
marketed and the hens put in another house or pen where 
they would be conditioned for breeding. In addition to 
feeding more solid grains and green feed, we would see 
that they got out on the ground every day, is possible. 
There is something about the contact with the earth, 
both for chicks and mature fowls, that is of untold 
value. Just why we do not know, but we know it is a 


If it is too late to separate your flock as suggested 
above, then select those that you wish to use as breeders 
and cut off the egg mash for two or three weeks. Let 
them slack up on their egg production and feed more of 
the solid grains and force them to dig and scratch for 
them. In this manner they can be rested from egg pro- 
duction for a few weeks and their bodies built up and 
restored with vitality. Then, when you are ready for 
hatching eggs, you can again put them on the egg mash 
and green feed, mate them up and try them out. 

The egg that is to be used for hatching shouH have a 
thick, firm white, one with the yolk standing up in the 
center where it belongs. You will notice, if you will in- 
vestigate, that the egg from the pullets or hens that have 
been laying heavily for any length of time will have a 
thin, watery white. Such an egg is lacking m vitality 
and hatchability will run low. 

The dairyman who is going to put a cow on test knows 
that he must feed so that her body will store up lime and 
ash as she simply cannot store it up when on he.ivy milk 
production. These are facts that will pay the poultry 
raiser to think over. There has been too inuch hap- 
hazard methods of feeding and caring for the flock; not 
enough attention paid as to just what we are after either 
for the present or future. The breeder must make his 
plans for the year and follow them out. He must decide 
in advance just what he is after and then go after it in 

the right manner. , , . , v « fV,of 

It will soon be time to be hatching and we hope that 
these remarks are in time to cause some thought and 
study and thus help many get their flocks m condition 
so that there won't be so many complaints of poor 

hatches this year. 

Do not worry over the early chicks if you are raising 
them for egg production or show purposes. There are 
more May and June chicks winning ribbons and making 
eood egg records than those hatched in February and 
early March. Every year, about this time, it is the same 
old story of the breeder who was defeated m the show 
room resolving that this year he will get some out early 
and be in shape next season. (Continued on page 17 J)

Their Brahmas and their Cochins are so 
different from ours as to be almost of an- 
other kind. The same is true of the Ply- 
mouth Rock and the Wyandotte. We all 
of us know how very different their Orp-

that come from over there are quite dif- 
ferent. They do breed some Laced Wjran-

not of our kind. We shall tell of the Eng-

First of all, let us step aside and consider 
the Langshans as they have them of the two English 

The Croad Langshans, as they are called, are one type, 
the Exhibition Langshan the other. The Croad Lang- 
shans are shorter on legs and heavier in body than are 
our Langshans. The Exhibition Langshan of England 
have very long legs and bodies that are slender as com- 
pared with all other Langshans. Some Black Hamburgs 
that came from England two years ago for the New 
York Show were much the same type as are the most 
extreme Langshans. One writer has made mention of 
some Langshans 
as having a small 
body set up on 
stilts, very long 
necks and overly 
large combs. This

than are the legs of our Columbian Ply- 
mouth Rocks. Their plumage color is 
pure white, the black markings not so in- 
tense as are the markings of our Colum- 
bian varieties. They have the pinkish 
white shanks that are beautiful. They are 
used largely on the other side for table 
poultry and for capons. We know of one 
large farm over there that is devoted to 
them exclusively, where thousands of 
capons and soft roasters are made. We 
might do well with the Speckled and the 
Light Sussex for all lines of poultry, both 
show and commercial. They are very at- 
tractive in appearance. 

The Cornish, in three varieties, are 
favored both here and in England. One 
variety known here as White Laced Red 
are known over there as Jubilee Indian 
Game. Some of the pictures that I have show fine 
form and color. The English are far ahead of the bal- 
ance of the world with the White and the colored varie- 
ties. For some reason or other, the Indian Game or 
Cornish fowls have not gained general favor. They are 
only sparingly bred in England. One of the oldest and 
best breeding farms, where Cornish were supreme, has 
sold out entirely within a year. The secretary of the 
Cornish Club in this country has done fine work for this 
breed, and while we have 
them better and better all 
the time, only a compara- 
tively few breed them. 

The Dorkings, the Sussex, 
the Cornish and the Red 
Caps grade in number and 
in popularity as mentioned. 
But very few people, com- 
paratively, know much 
about them. They are all 
of them told of in our new 
1923 Standard of Perfec- 
tion. Those who would like 
to breed some of them 
should study the descrip- 
tions of them in the Stand- 
ard, become fully acquainted 

with their form and color, you can purchase very good 
quality in all of them. The greater part of all of them 
breed true from specimens of quality. If you purchase, 
be sure that you get good ones, then breed and reject the 
best and continue in this way to have better all the tiine. 
You must learn by experience how to mate and handle 

The Orpington is the world over the most favored of 
all the English breeds. More of them by far are bred 
in this country than of any other of the 
English breeds. The prime favorites of 
them all are the Single Comb Buffs and 
the Single Comb Whites. None of the 
rose comb varieties are accepted by us as 
Standard. Only a few of them have ever 
been shown in this country. The same is 
true of the Jubilee Orpington that is so 
much like the Speckled Sussex. The 
Black Orpington has been bred sparingly 
with it, and some of the Blue variety are 
shown, not many of them, however. 

There are three distinct types of the 
Black variety. The laying, or utility type, 
as bred in Australia for the egg laying 
contests, where they have gained the high- 
est honors. This type might be compared 
with the show type, by saying that they 
are no more English Black Orpingtons 
than are the (Continued on page 173)

The Preservation of Poultry Manure 



XjT'S funny when you come to think of it. I've 
seen chicken fanciers who thought it was un- 
mggm dignified and unworthy to keep chickens for the 
S^j eggs they would lay. What would a man like 
that say if you told him you kept chickens for 
the manure they would lay? 

But don't laugh too soon, for if you don't take some 
care of what yours lay for you, there is a laugh on you, 
too. You may not keep your chickens for that purpose, 
but if you were an orange or a lemon grower out in 
California, you might be keeping them primarily for 
their droppings. Somewhat recently a long article ap- 
peared in a California farm paper, analyzing the fer- 
tilizer situation, and advocating the keeping of hens; 
one hen for each citrus fruit tree in the orchard. Pri- 
mary object manure, to be marketed in the shape of 
oranges and lemons; by-product, the eggs they would 

The wealth of America has been built up largely on 
the economic use of by-products. Coke, coal-tar, ex- 
haust gases, thousands of things once thrown away or 
let escape, now used to make money, through being 
made into dyes, or base- 
balls, or something else. 

What do you do with 
your orange food? You 
ought to get all the good 
out of it you can; and to 
find out just what to do, and 
how much of it to do, isn't 
an easy thing. At least I 
haven't found it so. 

The fertilizer trust has 
been pretty sick since 1920, 
but it might be even worse 
off, if all the poultry manure 
raised, or "dropped," in this 
country were used to its full 
value on our lands. 

Everybody knows that 
poultry manure is a strong 
fertilizer, but not all know 
just what it is composed of, 
and just how to treat it to 
get the most out of its fer- 
tilizing elements. Maybe 

nobody does — certainly they do not, as regards the com- 
position, because no two samples are alike. They are 
not even enough alike to be sure of a decently accurate 
average. There's one reason why you may hear a poul- 
try authority — as I did — recommend using 8 lbs. acid 
phosphate and 3 lb s. muriate of potash for every 30 lb s. 
hen manure tcT get a fertilizer of the value of a 3- to 
4-8-6; and then come across some figures which would 
plainly show this proportion to figure out to a 3-12-12 
basis. Where do we get off, we poor poultry keepers, 
when the doctors disagree so widely? 

It is because of these differences that I have given 
some study to this matter for my own satisfaction, which 
I am passing on. So many of these things are all easy 
and plain sailing, if we see but one article, or one bul- 
letin on the subject; but the next one we come across 
says something different. 

It is not my desire to repeat what is better told by 
those who issue those helpful bulletins from the Experi- 
ment Stations; and I certainly do not consider myself 
capable of advising counter to their recommendations — 
but where there are different sorts of advice on the same 
subject, to accomplish the same purpose, it is surely per- 
missible to examine several of these, in an endeavor to 
understand better the reasons and the evidence behind 
the varying advice. 


Knowledge Boiled Down 

ANURE should be kept dry. May- 
be this article is dry, too. But 
for five years, I have been taking 
notes at lectures, and cutting out articles 
from the papers, and getting Experiment 
Station bulletins, and writing to the pro- 
fessors with a lot of fool questions, and 
borrowing experts from the Fertilizer 
Trust to help me figure out how to mix 
my hen manure into fertilizer and know 
what 1 had when I got through. At last 
I found out what I wanted to know, and 
I've written it down for you. 

We all know that the three chief elements of fertili. 
zers are nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash, and that 
these are expressed by formulae showing their respec- 
tive comparative strength in any fertilizer by three fig, 
ures, written thus: 3-10-6 or 4-8-4. Poultry manure is 
comparatively strong in nitrogen, the first-named figure, 
though it also contains some potash, and considerable 
phosphoric acid. How much of each? That is indeed a 
question! No two samples analyze alike — and the differ- 
ences are so great that it is difficult to settle on any- 
thing which will provide a fair working basis, in the 
majority of cases. 

Extension Circular No. 53, issued by the Massachusetts 
Experiment Station, in February, 1918, showed eight 
different analyses of various samples varying in age 
from one day to six or eight weeks, the average of which 
was as follows: Nitrogen, 1.44</o; phosphoric acid, 
.99%; potash, .39%. Dr. L. L. Van Slyke, in his "Fer- 
tilizers and Crops," gives the following figures: 1.01 '/c, 
.8% and .38%. Extension Leaflet No. 57, issued by 
M. A. C, in October, 1922, thinks that the best way to 
figure is to average these two sets of analyses, and set- 
tles on the following con- 
tents of poultry manure for 
these three fertilizing ele- 
ments: Nitrogen, 1.22%; 
phosphoric acid, .89%, and 
potash, .38%. The potash 
content, you see, agreed 
very closely in both conclu- 
sions, but the big figure, the 
nitrogen, showed a varia- 
tion of more than 40%, the 
phosphoric acid figure varied 
more than 20%. 

Certain facts are defi- 
nitely known about poultry 
manure. We know that it 
is richer than the manure 
of the more common farm 
animals which are ordinar- 
ily looked upon as producing 
fertilizing material, and we 
know why it is richer. It is 
richer because of two 
things; first, a hen eats and 
voids less fibre than does a horse or cow; and second, 
and more important, much of the fertilizing value of any 
manure is in the liquid portion., and a fowl's urine is 
very much more concentrated than is that of a horse or 
cow. Now the manure of poultry contains much nitro- 
gen — ^which, however, escapes quickly in the form of 
ammonia. That is the smell you have so many times 
noticed in a dirty henhouse — the valuable nitrogen leav- 
ing for parts unknown, never again to be of any value. 

There are two ways of preventing this waste which 
takes place by evaporation: physically, ly drying the 
droppings almost as they fall, with dry loam, or sawdust, 
or coal ashes, or something of that sort; ard chemically, 
by neutralizing the base of the ammonia b/ some acid. 
Commercial acid phosphate is cheap and effective, and 
it also provides the second element of a br^anced fer- 
tilizer — phosphoric acid. Or you may use a combination 
of the two methods, the dry loam or sawdust making 
your home-made fertilizer work much easier, particularly 
with machinery; and then adding acid phosphate to 
neutralize the ammonia. 

The simplest way of keeping the goodness in your 
poultry manure, is to gather it often, and store in bar- 
rels, boxes or a covered pit of some kind, sprinkling acid 
phosphate over every lot stored. But for the most scien- 
tific fertilizer preparation, (Continued on paj^e 171) 





A 300-Egg Hen at 

There is no more satisfactory 
place for us to secure exact infor- 
mation and knowledge * pertaining 
to the results which might be ex- 
pected from our birds, than at an 
Egg Laying Contest. Not only is 
this true of egg production, but it is 
equally true of all the problems of 
management, such as smtipunt and 
cost of feed, value of eggs, returns 
over feed cost, and many other 
problems of equal significance. 
Study the Contest records. 


rq^. HE New Jersey Egg Laying Con- 

jH) tests closed on October SI, last, 

^^ and we are just able to report 
fully regarding some of the in- 
teresting records made 
these two competitions. 

These figures cover the third 

year of the Bergen County 

Contest; the birds being pul- 
lets, being the daughters of 

birds which occupied the pens 

at the Bergen Contest during 

the previous two years. At 

V'neland the report covers the 

first year of the Contest; the 

birds being pullets sent in by 

the owners of the respective 

pens. The average production 

made at the Bergen County 

Contest for the year wa<* 43.2%, 

or an average production of 

167.7 eggs per bird. At Vine- 
land, for the same period, the 

production was 40.6%, or an 

average production of 148 eggs 

per bird. These figures are 

made at Contests where the 

birds are housed in flocks of 

twenty each, making two thou- 
sand birds competing to make 

up this average. 

Leghorns Again Prove Supreme 
At the Bergen County Con- 
test, the Leghorn flock aver- 
aged 165.2 eggs per bird, while , , t i j 
the next highest were the Single Comb Rhode Island 
Reds wth 143.7 eggs, with the White Wyandottes nex 
with 130.8. At Vineland, the Barred Plymouth Rocks 
won the variety championship with an average of 163.1 
eggs per bird, while the Leghorns were second with 153.8 
eg^s The leading pen at the Contest was Smgle Comb 
^te Leghorns, fv^ed by James Whetsel, of Vineland. 
This pen laid 3,998 eggs, or practically 200 eggs per bird 
The Vineland Contest records for the past year do not 
show up as satisfactorily as they would, due to serious 
epidemics of bronchitis in the fall and winter and a 
material loss from theft of birds during the ";»^d-.unimer^ 
The Bergen County Contest was won by Manning 
Potts, of Stockton. His pen laid 4,223 eggs, which is an 
average production of 211 eggs per bird for the year. 
Hollywood Farm, of Hollywood, Wash was second w^th 
George B. Ferris, of Grand Rapids, Mich., third; both 
of these latter pens averaging over 200 eggs per bird per 
year. This is a wonderful production when it was con- 
sidered that there were twenty birds in each pen. 
Bergen Produce* a 300-Egger 
Bird No. 17, in Pen No. 46, at the Bergen County 
Contest, laid exactly 300 eggs in the year. She was a 
White Leghorn owned by the Hoean Farms, of Brook- 
lyn, N. Y She is the second bird since the inauguration 
of the New Jersey Contests sj^ce 1916 to reach the 
coveted 300-egg mark. This bird did not start to lay 
until November 20, 1922 and she did not lay an egg on 
the last day of the Contest, October 31; thereby making 
a production of exactly 300 eggs i" ^x^J^^y 344days. It 
was back at the first contest in 1916-17 that a White Ply- 
mouth Rock hen beat her by one egg, producing ?01 eggs 
in the contest period. It is interesting to note in observ- 
ing the breed records of each of these two j^oj^.^^^^^^' ^^^J

Leghorns as bred today by the commercial 
egg farmers, are well termed *'ezS ma-

that the ten leading pens at the Bergen 
County Contest were T eghorns, 
and that of the ten leading 
pens at the Vineland Contest, 
eight were Leghorns and two 
were Plymouth Rocks. 

How Do Your Hens Lay? 
Did you ever stop to take 
the trapnest records and ana- 
lyze them to see into what pro- 
duction groups the birds in 
your flock arrange themselves? 
In making their report on the 
New Jersey Egg Laying Con- 
tests for 1923, Professcrs Han- 
nas and Clickner show a table 
grouping the birds in ten 
classes of thirty eggfi each. 
The table follows:

241-270 58 39 

271-300 5 ,1. 

In observing this table, it is 
interesting to note that in the 
case of the Bergen County 
Contest, the greatest number of birds falling in one 
group, was in that division laying from 181 to 210 eggs, 
there being 421 birds making this wonderful record. At 
the Vineland Contest, which you will remember nveraged 
somewhat lower in total production, the heaviest group 
was the 151 to 180 egg group, in which 428 birds fell. 
It will be noted in each contest how a few bir Is group 
themselves in the very poor or low production <*lasses; 
that is, below 90 eggs. These birds are in all prc^ability, 
or the majority of them at least, duds, or so-called real 
slackers, which either through disease, physical deform- 
ity or a low inherited egg production, never produce a 
profitable egg yield. Then we see the next five divisions 
from 90 to 240 eggs contain the great bulk of our poul- 
try population, with the maximum number coming in the 
CTOup which represents the average production of the 
contest, while at the very top of the list we .^ee a few 
birds representing the superior individuals forming the 
two groups 240 to 300. This division of production is 
typical of all flocks, and the one point which we should 
clearly note is that as our flock average increases, the 
group having the greatest number of birds in it continu- 
ally moves up the scale into a production class of heavier 
and heavier egg laying ability. Supplementing this 
table it is interesting to note that at the Bergen County 
ConU there were 451 birds which laid 200 eggs or 
more during the year. This is 22^ % .of the to^^l num- 
ber of birds entered. Of this 451 birds, it is further 
interesting to note that 412 were Leghorns, 27 were 
Single Comb Rhode Island Reds, 6 were While Wyan- 
dottes 5 were Barred Rocks, and one Ancona. While 
at Vineland, there were 342 birds which laid 200 eggs 
or more These were divided as follows: 282 Leghorns, 
27 Tarred Plymouth Rocks. 17 Rhode Island Reds, 13 
White Plymouth Rocks, and 3 Wyandottes

Improved Breeding for 1924 

We have been talking system, plan, records, etc., 
in Everybodys for a long, long time and c.en this 
mention won't be the last we will make of these 
features in poultry keeping and production for we 
believe in them and we wish to have them consid- 
ered and adopted generally for both the extra re- 
sults and satisfaction they will give to the poultry- 

Every breeder should know by this time just 
what his plans for 1924 are and they should be 
followed to the letter. 

Whatever your plans for 1924 are they ehould 
include an effort to improve your stock in general 
quality, and wherever possible; also in quantity. 

TTie breeder who does not aim higher 'or im- 
proved stock, and reach further for a greater suc- 
cess each year is not doing himself or the industry 
justice. You don't realize what you can accom- 
plish until you try, so keep trying year by year, for 
who knows but that you may be the one to ferret 
out some marvelous new system in poultry produc- 
tion or unravel some of nature's secret breeding 
laws that will felicitate you and mankind for time 
to come. 

The older breeders, and those of long past days 
handed down to us in Standard-bred poultry a 
legacy of untold value, and as time passes, we 
breeders of this day are shouldered with a responsi- 
bility to hold safe and to improve, to build up, 
higher, better and stronger in beauty and practical 
worth that for which they spent their lives to start 
and for which they laid a very substantial founda- 
tion. One far better than perhaps they knew — and 
in time, we, like they, must hand this over to others 
to continue and it is up to us to improve, to en- 
hance it, so we may know that we are giving greater 
value than received. 

But — all this hoped for poultry improvement 
must not be expected from only a few breeders as 
heretofore. Every breeder should consider this his 
special work, there is plenty of work, room and 
profit for all and we believe that if our breeders in 
general will get down to tacks, each doing his best, 
that astounding results will follow and many new 
"wizard breeders*' be discovered. 

TTie work and the fame attained by our many 
great breeders will last forever and grow brighter 
with time as the results of thier work keep show- 
ing. We. cannot even determine their worth if we 
tried, but we can ever increase it, and every breeder 
has equal opportunity to place his name beside 
those we so highly cherish by giving his best every 
day and every year to improved poultry breeding. 

The breeding season for 1924 is now before you. 
Make your start now. Let this be your real begin- 
ning for your greater try, and — ^here is hoping for 
your success. 

Some Matters for Consideration 

It is very evident that with certification as prac- 
ticed, private egg records, the Hogan System, and 
the innumerable other individual systems practiced 
by the so-called poultry experts that a broader 

breach has been opened between the sellers and 
buyers of poultry stock than has formerly existed. 
This condition we greatly regret, both for the errors 
that have and will ever be made and for the loss 
that is sure to ensue. 

Following we quote extracts from a few of the 
several letters lately received, from them we are 
made aware that there are poultry experts (so- 
called) in every community whose poultry knowl- 
edge is paramount and whose opinions are infalli- 
ble. They are the "law" and their say-so goes wirfi 
all those breeders who haven't the confidence in their 
own opinions to appreciate quality and value m 
poultry. As a natural consequence the expert's (?) 
advice is followed, the seller loses a sale with time 
and personal expense and the buyer, besides losing 
some confidence in the business and in mankind, 
returns birds of breeding and rare blood lines that 
would have insured him improved quality and poul- 
try progress. 

We cannot conceive of a condition where a third 
party is at all necessary to any transaction where 
breeding and blood lines are the important factors 
desired and surely no expert, either real or other- 
wise, can ever give a worth while opinion upon such 
questions. This is the fundamental question in 
poultry and in all livestock breeding, where only 
the breeder is qualified to pass an opinion that is 

The extract of letters above referred to are as 

One of our best known breeders writes: "I have 
lately had two shipments of fine birds returned to 
me with the statement made in each case that the 
birds were satisfactory in appearance, but that some 
local expert had claimed they did not stand the 
college 'pelvic' test and that their combs were too 
small and fine for those birds to prove layers." 

Another of our foremost breeders writes: "An- 
other college expert has just found fault with an- 
other chicken and in consequence on the expert's 
advice the bird has been returned to me. 1 wonder 
if you think it is right for these experts to venture 
so nriuch expert opinion. It takes a long time to 
qualify as an expert and I wonder in what way these 
men have qualified to give decisions on Standard- 
bred poultry for breeding and exhibition. The 
decision of an expert is always final. They arc 
backed up by the credentials of their college and 
state and when a decision is made it is final. Pelvic 
bones are part of the anatomy of a fowl but let me 
say to you that this expert business is serious." 

This from a bred-to-lay breeder, "I sold ten certi- 
fied laying hens all with a substantial r<:cord and 
each banded with a sealed leg band to e breeder in 
Ohio. On November 7, he wrote me that the birds 
had arrived in good shape and that he was very 
much pleased with them. He wrote me November 
2 1 , saying that he had returned the birds to me the 
day before on the advice of an expert graduate 
poultryman who said they were not worth ten cents 
each. While I am really glad to have the birds 
back I do not want a stain of this kind to show upon 
my record as a poultryman." 

We have two other letters along the same lines as 
the above and another that intimates that the man 

J^o condemned a trio purchased so that the buyer 
i -gturned them to the seller, bought that same trio 
I by >^i'® before they had reached their home and 
1 were at once reshipped to him. This word comes 
I from the original buyer and we have written for 

full particulars. 
1 From our observations, we are perfectly satisfied 
that no single one, or all the tests and signs com- 
bined, that are known of, for the selection of layers 
(excepting the trapnest) are absolute or positive. 
For breeding birds of highest exhibition quality, 
their blood lines and breeding are of first and great- 
est importance and only in their breeding values do 
we have the answer of their worth. No method 
other than their breeding will ever give the right 
answer to their quality and worth. 

Our compliments to the "experts. We have 
much faith in a few of the many we know, and they 
are the first to know that all signs often fail, are 
most unreliable, and that the progress made re- 
sulted from breeding experience and not from the 
haphazard methods of feeling, measuring, etc. Fur- 
ther, such acknowledged experts as Lewis, Graham, 
Thompson. Philips, etc., are far above the practices 
above referred to. 

Here is a condition that must be met in a broad 
and liberal way. It can best be met between the 
seller and buyer. The seller is most anxious to 
please customers and to give real value. He fully 
realizes that satisfactory sales are his greatest asset 
and he is not going to pawn off worthless stock 
upon anyone. TTie average poultry breeder (buyer) 
has a pretty good idea of quality, of his condition 
and his wants, he is far more apt to discover ini- 
proved quality and to impartially observe the birds 
bought and his opinion, backed by the statements 
made by the seller of the^ birds, is far more certain 
to give results, than are those of one who knows 
nothing of their breeding, who fails in personal 
breeding experience and banks on theory alone arid 
who may have only superficial knowledge of Stand- 
ard exhibition quality. When a buyer refers a bird 
to an expert for opinion on quality, this opinion as 
the evidence at hand clearly shows is usually preju- 
dicial to the bird and unfavorable. 

We believe equally in our breeders and m our 
Standard-bred poultry industry and we urge all 
poultrymen to have like confidence m both tor 
poultry progress. 

Eggs for Hatching 

We often hear the seasons spoken of as either 
good or bad for hatching eggs, and no doubt the 
season, according to its weather, climate, etc., has 
much to do with this and to some extent at least is 
accountable for the difference. v l u u 

Still the main cause is otherwise and the natch- 
ability of the eggs depends mostly upon the breed- 
ers, their condition and the care and handhng or 

the eggs. J 1 I. 

The breeders receiving the proper feed and at- 
tention wont be greatly affected by weather changes. 
You can't expect fertility of high record unless the 
birds have been cared for corresponding to condi- 
tions. The changes of condition must be noted and 
arranged for and resulu will follow. 

The care and handling of the eggs is of far 

greater importance than it is usually given credit 
for. It is a well known fact that many breeders 
who have experimented and adopted a system of 
handling hatching eggs have met with about the 
same good results year after year in producing satis- 
factory fertility. 

Don't expect your breeders to give you the high- 
est rate of fertility unless you give them the best of 
care. Conditions are seldom twice alike year after 
year and the poultryman must know conditions and 
be prepared to supply the foods and care required 
by observation and experimenting. To produce 
strong fertile eggs that produce improved livable 
chicks should be the aim of every breeder. 

Eggs for hatching, particularly, and all eggs in 
general should be gathered several times daily. 
Supply plenty of clean, dark nests in a moderately 
cool, dry place when the temperature holds about 
uniform and turn the eggs half over daily, or twice 
a day when convenient. 

In packing hatching eggs for shipment they 
should be selected with care for soundness and uni- 
formity. One or two extra large eggs with general 
small ones will never make a very satisfactory set- 
ting in either appearance or results to the buyer. 
For hatching we prefer the medium size egg, rather 
smaller than larger when true to form, coloi, etc. 

We have before stated that it is the so-called 
minor things in poultry keeping that are of great 
importance and that require attention, not one day 
a week, but every day when the limit of quality, 
quantity and worth of production is wanted. Look 
well to the little things and many of the bigger 
things will take care of themselves. 

Another Show Season Gone 

Another show season, that of 1923-24, has 
passed and we can repeat in full truth, the same as 
at the end of previous seasons, that it wa? "the 
greatest and best ever.'' 

We believe that during the past season more 
poultry exhibits were held, more entries were had 
and that greater interest with a record attendance 
was the general rule. 

From every exhibit attended and from every sec- 
tion comes the same good word, that the quality of 
the birds was ot a uniformly higher grade than in 
the past and that the future prospects for Standard- 
bred poultry breeding offers more and more oppor- 
tunities to those who will follow this work. 

To give our readers a first hand view of the pro- 
gress poultry has made, we here quote a statement 
made to us at one of the great shows by a promi- 
nent breeder who said, "The great work our breed- 
ers have accomplished by careful mating and selec- 
tive breeding has produced such marvelous results 
that today many of them are marketing birds that 
twenty, yes even fifteen or ten years ago in many 
varieties would have been champion winners at our 

greatest shows." . r . . • j 
There is an abundance of satisfaction m the ad- 
vancement made. It is so conspicuous that no 
question remains, so sound and dependable that still 
more quality and more business can be expected 
with certainty which assures more possibilities and 
an ever greater industry. 


At this season of the year, every- 
one engaged, in any way, in the 
poultry business is working at top- • and women 

notch speed, whether breeder or en 
gaged in some line of poultry s kin

We want it to keep out of our col- 
umns every dishonest advertiser. 
None of them shall profit at the ex- 
pense of our good subscriber family, 
and they evidently know it, as we 
seldom are presented with objec- 
tional advertising. Once in a great 
while, one comes in which is on our 
black list, and it goes hurrying back 
to the sender with more than a gen- 
tle reminder that Everybodys does 
not want that kind of business. 

Next to the "get rich quick or 
poultry quack" is that fellow who 
shops around as a space buyer, who 
fprgets or desires to forget to pay 
his advertising bills. Of course, 
such advertisers are questionable to 
us, so as to be quite sure of "who is 
who" we tell them it costs money to 
publish a magazine like Everybodys 
and that our advertising space turn- 
over must be one of prompt regular- 
ity. We pay our bills and so are 
justified in expecting the other fel- 
low to do likewise. 

We are proud of our advertisers. 
They know it, and they as well, we 
believe, are proud of us. Every- 
bodys gives them a market for their 
goods, an ever-increasing market as 
Everybodys is growing in circulation 
with every issue, and grow it will con- 
tinue, not a mushroom growth, but 
an ever-grrowing family of readers, 
who subscribe for Everybodys on its 
merits for the good it does them. 

Right here, perhaps, is an oppor- 
tune time to ask your help that

Everybodys can become better and

kind will do it. Double our present 
family by seeing just one in your 
neighborhood who should enjoy its

but $1.00 for two full years. Tell 
them about us; what you think of 
our efforts to publish a distinctive, 
interesting and instructive poultry 
magazine. Such seed finds root. You 
can do great things for us — are you 
willing to do this? If you are; if 
every one of you send in one or more

so many surprises in good things 
that you will say, "Hurrah for Every-

part." And that is our desire, our 
happiness as well. A living for each

after that, work well done is worth 
in satisfaction more than wealth — 
and work well done in this case is a

a monthly visitor which in its printed 
pages makes your home known to 
our home, and Everybodys' home 
known to your home — through mu- 
tual desire and confidence. 


The United States Official Postal 
Guide, published by the Post Office 
Department, for December, is surely 
an interesting and inspiring number. 
Perhaps we are blessed here at the 
publishing office at Hanover with an 
unusual postmaster with arv organi- 
zation which realizes the many diffi- 
culties of a publisher and who always 
are on the job to facilitate the 
prompt delivery of the tons upon 
tons of magazines and other mail 
which goes out from this office 
monthly. At any rate Postmaster 
D. Guy Hollinger and his worthy as- 
sistant, Harry B. Winebrenner, to- 
gether with every clerk and employee 
demonstrate to us time and time 
again that service is ever uppermost 
in their minds. 

The public at large are so apt to 
jump with both feet on the Post 
Office Department, or for that mat- 
ter any other public carrier, for the 
very slightest inefficiency as they see 
it, yet in nine cases out of ten the 
same errors in their own business 
would be overlooked as pardonable, 
yet when it comes to government ser- 
vice their kicks start without de- 
liberation or cause — it is because of 
this proneness to complain that 
Everybodys desires to commend a- 
service that deserves it. 

We started to speak of the Postal 
Guide but got on another track. 
What we wanted to say was this: 
Under heading "Magazine and News-

wish Egain to call to your attention 
the fact that many big advertisers in 
magazines and newspapers do not in- 
sert in their advertisements the 
street and number of their place of 

This causes those who answer 
these advertisements to address such 
advertisers leaving off the street and 

While such advertisers may be 
well known, yet the omission of the 
street and number in the address is 
at times the cause of much delay in 
a post office which otherwise would 
be avoided. 

Every advertiser should note this 
statement by the Department. Quite 
frequently we receive letters from 
subscribers stating they had not re- 
ceived quotations and catalogues 
asked for, in almost every instance 
we have found that these advertis- 
ers, while nationally knovni, had 
failed to carry their street addresses 
in advertising copy. Later perhaps 
these subscribers have written that 
they had heard from the advertiser 
after several days delay. This is an 
important matter, particularly to the 
advertiser selling by mail. 



Considerable activity is being 
evinced among the poultry interests 
of the United States in the success 
of the Second World's Poultry Con- 
gress to be held in Barcelona, Spain, 
May 10 to 16, 1924. Recently there 
was held a meeting of the United 
States Council of the Congress and 
definite steps are under way for 
proper representation of the poul- 
try interests of the country. 

The Congress is being held under 
the patronage of the Spanish Gov- 
ernment, the Ministry of Agriculture 
and the Municipality of Barcelona. 
The first World's Poultry Congress 
was held at The Hague in 1921 and 
was a decided success. The place 
for holding the third Congress will 
probably be decided upon at the 
time of holding the Second Con- 

These World's Congresses provide 
a common meeting ground for all in- 
vestigators in poultry husbandry, 
breeders, producers, poultry supply 
dealers and others associated with 
the poultry industry of all countries 
of the world. In connection with 
the Congress next year an exhibition 
will be held, embracing educational, 
investigational, and commercial 
phases as well as exhibits of repre- 
sentative breeds of poultry char- 
acteristic of the respective countries. 
Recent reports from Barcelona in- 
dicate that in practically every coun- 
try of the world, where the poultry 
industry has attained any degree of 
significance, great interest is being 
taken in the forthcoming Cong^ress. 
In many cases official delegates have 
already been named and plans are 
under way for extensive exhibits. It 
is understood that England is mak- 

ing a strong scientific exhibit; Hoi. 
land an exhibit on breeds; Canada t 
comprehensive exhibit on egg gradei 
and classes; Denmark an extensive 
exhibit on co-operative marketinf 
and quality in eggs. 

In the United States a strong Ej. 
hibit Committee has been organized 
and plans are already under way for 
making an educational exhibit, t 
commercial exhibit and a live bird 
exhibit. Several states have inti- 
mated their intentions of prepariQ| ' 
educational exhibits dealing with in- i 
vestigational, extension, and produc- ' 
tion features. The commercial in- 
terests expect to have exhibits in the 
form of incubators, brooders, equip- 
ment of various kinds and feed sup. 
plies. The breeders expect to ex- 
hibit a ctrong line of standard breedi 
and varieties. One criticism of the 
First World's Poultry Congress waa 
that the educational exhibit from 
the United States was not adequate. 
Only three or four States sent ex- 
hibits over and there was practically 
no uniformity. The result was that 
the United States' exhibit appeared 
in poor light as compared vdth ex- 
hibits from other countries, even the 
smaller ones. Another adverse bit 
of criticism respecting the first Con- 
gress was the absence of any stand- 
ard birds from this country. That 
was very unfortunate indeed, since 
nearly all other countries were well 
represented. It is felt by many in 
this country that the United States 
has made notable contributions to 
the breeding industry and that it 
has probably higher standards of 
quality in the stock than any other 

The Latin American countries will 
be well represented at the Congress 
in Spain and this should be of con- 
siderable interest to American breed- 
ers and producers. The poultry in- 
dustry in the South American coun- 
tries is being developed rapidly and 
there is a keen demand for breed- 
ing stock. Representatives of the 
various American breeds and varie- 
ties of poultry will command world 
wide interest and will serve to im- 
press other countries with the record 
of achievement that has been ob-

Weak Chicks 

With Cheap Incuhators 

It's not how many you hatch that counts after all; it's 
how many you raise. Chicks that hatch out weak and 
wobbly, and live but a few days, mean nothing to you 

except trouble and loss. They make one sick of the poultry business. 
Most of the chicks you lose in the first two weeks die because they 
did not hatch out with enough vitality or strength for a good start. 


Are famous for big hatches of 

Strong, Healthy Chicks That 
live and Grow 

Mrs. 1. N. Girard, Victor, Iowa, summed up the experience of thousands of Queen 
users when she wrote us: "I have had splendid luck with my Queen. The chicks are 
so much stronger than the chicks hatched in two other machines of different makes." 

It is not luck that chicks hatched from Queen Incubators are stronger and healthier 
— it is because the Queen maintains accurate and uniform hatching conditions 
throughout the entire hatching period, producing almost always a perfect chick fully 
equipped with the strength and vitality for a good quick start. 

The Queen is accurately regulated, taking care of sudden temperature variations 
without danger. The Queen is built of genuine Redwood, 
which does not absorb the odor from hatching eggs. The 
Queen has double walls of California Redwood, with in- 
sulation between. The Queen hot water system prevents 
the eggs from drying out and provides ample moisture 
for the hatching chick. 

<<I never lose any of my chickens 

with white diarrhea that are hatched from the Queen," 
wrote Mrs. Bessie Taniges, Herrick, 111. *'I have a Queen 
Incubator that has been used since 1907— bought it second- 
hand six years ago and have used it ever since. I would 
not give the Queen for any two machines of any other 
' make I ever used." 

Read what J. C. Coulter, Sardis, Ohio, said, who wrote as 
follows: "I have had my Queen 9 or 10 years and have 
made several 95^ hatches. Made as high as 98%. It is 
easy to run — almost runs itself 
—and chicks live after they are 
hatched." .—

Need lor Activity 

How best can the American Poultry Association advertise 

Poultry Products? 


There has been many suggestions 
along the line of advertising the 
product of the American hen. Many 
seem to think that it is the duty of 
the American Poultry Association 
to put forward this campaign. The 
American Poultry Association has 
done a great work for the poultry 
industry. This organization has 
given the pure-bred fowl on which 
the foundation was laid to make a 
hen that would more than reproduce 
herself. In order to bring that 
about the makti? of the Standard of 
Perfection have tried to give a fowl 
full of vigor, good in type and with 
a healthy feather that goLS to make 
beauty along with utility. W^h thi3 
foundation we have raised the lay 
of the hen from fifteen eggs per 
year to as high as three hundred and 
if we would recognize the claims of 
some, to nearly an egg per day. 

Great progress has been made with 
laying hens in America and the rest 
of the world has been working along 
that line. The American hen does 
not take a back seat for the best 

that the world has produced but the 
possibilities of hens as layers are 
just beginning. To make a great lay 
with one hen is a great accomplish- 
ment but to get a flock average of 
from twelve to fifteen dozen eggs 
per hen is an accomplishment that 
is still in its infancy. It is said that 
the average hen in America lays 
about 80 eggs in 365 days. Where 
the claimers get their figures it is 
hard to find out. The United States 
government has given out figures 
that were estimates but no census 
has been taken that would give the 
facts. That feature, taking the 
actual census of the lay of the fowl 
is a thing to strive for on the part 
of the poultrymen. 

Editor F. W. Kazmeier, of the 
O. K. Poultry Journal says in his 
December paper: 

"The greatest need for a national 
poultry organization is now very ap- 
parent. We need this organization 
to carry to the nation a wide adver- 
tising campaign to increase the con- 
sumption of market eggs and poul- 









Brooder Stoves 

Both Oil emd CotU Burning 

Millions of Chicks Die Each 

Year from Improper Care 

and Brooding 

My 40-pa<e book "Ju»t Common Sense 
in Brooding and Raising Chicks" tells 
why. ^ It tells how to prevent it. I don't 
say, just use our brooder stoves and 
they will all live," but I tell you my ex- 
perience in raising chicks before I ever 
made a brooder stove. 

A Coal 
Brooder that 
Burns Any 
Kind of Coal 
or Coke 

It Takes 
the Coal 

I have devoted the greater part of my life to 
brooding chicks and working out brooder stove 

Jroblems. I started the Inter-State Sales Co. in 
919, sold half interest in 1921, and on June 1, 
1923, sold the other half, giving them right to use 
my patents on the No-Cold Brooder Stove and 
have built a new brooder stove factory. 

Our new improved oil burning brooder stove 
is the result of seven years* study. It overcomes 
all the weak features in oil brooder stove construc- 
tion. The new oil control is absolutely perfect. 

Our new improved coal burning brooder is 
made in our own factory. It burns slack coal just 
as well as any other. The new improved grate 
and automatic gas control makes this possible. 
We have stoves in our warehouse ready for ship- 
ping. We ship by prepaid express. 

We have a baby chick book and catalogue for 
you. We will send it by return mail if you will 
send us your name and address.

try. From outward signs the old ! 
American Poultry Association win 
never attempt this work. Twice the 
directors asked the ofRcials to do 
this job. On each occasion it ^^jjj 
completely ignored. We do not 
know the exact reason, although 
several reasons have been advanced 
The fact that they have been re^ 
quested to undertake this job, and 
failed to do. In every day business 
that means we must look to other 
means of accomplishing this task." 
The above paragraph is true, yet 
not true. We need advertising along i 
the lines of creating a greater de- ' 
mand for poultry products. I have 
been on the board since 1911 except 
for three years. I have attended 
conventions at Denver, Nashville, 
Atlantic City, Chicago, San Francisco, 
Chicago, Kansas City, Seattle, Knox- 
ville and Philadelphia but at none of 
these meetings did the directors re- 
commend that the officers advertise 
poultry and eggs. No one came for- ' 
ward with a feasible plan for or- j 
ganizing a force for advertising. If \ 
Mr. Kawneier's figures be true, there 
are 412,000,000 hens laying eggs in \ 
the United States. These hens are ' 
in the hands of many million people 
and only a few thousand have availed 
themselves of a membership in the 
American Poultry Association or any 
other kind of poultry organization. 
If Mr. Kazmeier can show how this 
force can be brought within an or- 
ganization, then he will have made 

the big discovery that the American 
Poultry Association has been striv- 
ine for since it was first founded 
^y back in the seventies. 

If it be possible to get such an or- 
ganization, the American Poultry 
Association is the place to begin. 

We have at least seven thousand 
members who could multiply seven 
times seven and once that many join 
together, we could have a fund with 
which to make the start. 

Again, if we could induce one per 
cent of the millions who keep fowls 
to donate one cent for each hen that 
they own, then we could have a fund 
with which we could reach the pub- 
lic in the way suggested by Mr. Kaz- 
meier in his editorial. By organiz- 
ing we could realize the big dream. 

The writer has sent in nearly a 
thousand members to the American 
Poultry Association and I never quit 
in this work. I have subscribed to 
every fund that has been raised in 
the state of Washington to advertise 
poultry and eggs. When called on 
for one cent for every hen I owned, 
I have made it four cents per hen. 
I do not sell a dozen eggs per year 
in the markets. I have sold neigh- 
bors a few eggs but never made a 
business of producing eggs for mar- 
ket. I have advocated the advertis- 
ing of eggs and poultry for years but 
find it hard to even get the support 
of those who make their living from 
marketing eggs. 

But let's get back to our subject. 
Not one man or one woman ever 
came to President T. F. Rigg or Mrs. 
E. B. Rigg, our secretary, with a 
plan for advertising eggs and poul- 
try products. There has been lots of criti- 
ciim but not one constructive suggestion has 
ever been made to my knowledge or the 
board of directors would have had these ad- 
vertisements going today. .,.,., .u 

Mr. Kazmeier. in his editorial, is like the 
rest of the signboards. He tells one to go 
but makes no suggestions as to road condi- 
tions, how to get gasoline that will run this 
peat advertising car. 

Let Mr. Kazmeier cut out moonshine and 
come into the sunlight with a campaign out- 
lined that is feasible and the board of di- 
rectors of the American Poultry Association 
will jump at the chance to adopt it, put it 
before the annual convention that will be 
held at Toronto next August. T. F. Rigr 
tnd Mrs. E. B. Rigg, our president and 
tecretary, will be in the front seat advocat- 
ing his suggestion. 

Give us something 1 Tell us how, and if 
we fail, then call for your nation wide or- 
nnization. Do not be like the captain on 
board a ship who was howling for water 
He asked a passing ship to give him water 
The captain of the passing ship replied 
"Put down your buckets, you are in the 
mouth of the Amazon." 

Constructive thoughts are what counts in 
everything, a criticism is only good when 
it is useful. To thoughtlessly criticise io 
like trying to build a fire with a 
You can start a blaze but you can not get 
»ny heat unless you have wood or coal to 
«dd to your fire. ... 

If we could get five per cent of the bene 
organized into one body by the owners and 
if these owners would subscribe one cent 
for each hen, we could obtain a fund of two 
million dollars, provided there are over 
four hundred million hens in the United 

With two million dollars, we could ge^ 
•dvertising in every magazine in the Uniter 
States, all farm and poultry papers and 
bsve a fund left for the daily newspapers. 

One may ask why use poultry and farn- 
Pipers. That answer is easy. There are 
three poultry papers in the United States 
that reach at least two hundred thousand 
TObscribers each month. It is safe to say 
that these three papers are read by six hun- 
ire<I thousand people each month. Fut

Help Farmers Get Ahead 

THROUGH membership in a mighty cooperative loan sys- 
tem, nearly 300,000 farmers are paying off their mortgages. 
Through the twelve Federal Land Banks these farmers are 
securing better terms and lower interest rates. Besides, every 
borrower shares in the profits earned Already, more than 
$7,000,000 has been paid as dividends. 

Money for these mortgage loans is gotten through the sale of 
Federal Land Bank Bonds. Money invested in these Bonds helps 
to build up the farming business by providing needed capital. 

Federal Land Bank Bonds have all the safety of good farm 
mortgages, plus additional guarantees. 

Federal Land Bank Bonds are free from all taxes, except 
inheritance taxes. Interest received from them is free from 
income taxes. 

You can turn Federal Land Bank Bonds into cash on short 
notice or use them as security for a bank loan. 

Federal Land Bank Bonds yield a regular income, payable 
twice a year. Price and interest rate on request. 

Federal Land Bank Bonds may be had in denominations 
to fit your bank account: $40, $100, $500, $1,000, $5,000 and 
$10,000. Your choice of coupon or registered form, delivered 
by registered mail. Correspondence confidential. Remember, 
the words **The Federal Land Bank" appear at the top of 
every bond issued by a Federal Land Bank.

the arBuments used l»y poultrymen favoring 
the use of eggs into the mouths of these 
Kix hundred thousand readers alone, ^jn 
be a bij; thing. 

There are three farm papers in the United 
SStates that are read by at least three mil. 
lion people. There are many other far^j 
papers that it would pay to use fur the same 
reasi»n that the poultry papers should be 

Then there are the bitr magazines th»t 
go to millions of subscribers each month 
The great daily papers, some of which issue 
a hundred thousand papers each day and 
one «!r two claim to reach a million readers 
each day. If we could have the two million 
dollar fund, we could reach the twenty-fly, 
niiliion housewives at once and tell them 
the reasoi:s for the use of eggs. 

If we could pull together and quit knock- 
ing, this groat work could be uccomi)lished- 
Imt carping criticism will not even get us 

Kverybodys Poultry Magazine hns carried 
many suggestions along poultry advertising 
This great paper has done its share to boost 
the great undertiikinp: and every poultryinan 
will find it behind any feasible advertisine 
campaign that can be made to go. 

The officers of the American Poultry As- 
sociation are more than anxious to carry 
forward a great constructive campaign if 
they could get the money for such work. 
"You cannot make brick without straw"' 
was the answer to the Egyptian king, nor 
can you advertise without money. 

Mr. Kazmeier is afraid that we will pro- 
duce more eggs and poultry than we can 
consume. This I -do not believe. We can 
never reach that point in America as long 
ns the cities continue to grow faster than 
the country. 

I believe that the time is ooming when 
our urban i)opulation is going to grow much 
larger than it is now. that it will only be 
a few years before <iur cities will begin to 
go backward and urban i)opulation to go 
ahead. There are three things that will 
make urban t>opulations grow and these are 
the three things: 


Good roads. 


The time is coming when state lines will 
be crossed by big super power companies 
who will develop our groat ele<'tric ])roper- 
ties. These companies will make power so 
cheap that it will be used l>y every one. 
People will move to the country fast whon 
they can have all of the conveniences that 
a city can offer and be free of the dnst Hid 
congestion found in the crowded tenements. 

Good roads and cheap cars bring the city 
to the door. Electricity brinp? light, heat 
and all the things that make cities appeal. 

With new suburban populations will come 
more poultrymen and a larger market for 
poultry jiroducts. More fowls and eggs will 
be consumed by the urbanites than would 
be consumed if the same ))eoj)le lived in 
the cities. By living urban, ]>eople will have 
the money saved from high rents and they 
will live better. Better living brings more 
fowl, lots (if i)astry and cake, pastry and 
cakos consume eggs regardless of the fact 
that some baking powder firms advertise 
eggless cake. They might as well advertise 
coffoeless coffee or pancakes without flour. 

A strong pull together will bring the 
money to do this advertising but we do n'lt 
need any other organization in the field. 
The baby chick men are a live ])unch that 
are doing good work and with proper encour- 
ag<'ment on the part of the breeders of 
jtoultry. the American Poultry Association 
will take the lead and put the big work 
over. There is a big field for this work 
and there are lots of poultrymen who would 
join in the big venture. Boost all you 
can along the line. 

One way to set the ball rolling is to 
write an article to your home paper and 
throtigh that medium tell the housewife thi^: 

When you see a baking powder advertis- 
ing eggless cake, buy some other baking 
powder, use eggs in your cake and you will 
have a lighter cake, a better cake and one 
that is more healthful. When you see a 
l»ancake firm advertising pancake flour 
without eggs, buy some other pancake flour 
and ndd two or three eggs to every hatch 
of panciakes and your children will n"t 
complain of the cakes being heavy nor will 
they be loggy when they go to school. Oct 
that thought before the housewives of your 
town. It will be to her benefit and at the 
same time help the poultry industry. 

Good care is always an essential natter 
in poultry keeping. You can buy the be** 
stock and mate the best you can, but if 7°^ 
don't take the best of care of the birds you 
will ruin your chances. Start right with 
good stock or eggs from a reliable breeder 
and give all the best of care regularly. 





More Healthy and Thrifty 
in the Same Time 

This is happening every day during the growing season. We 
have similar reports from all parts of the country. 

A doctor of Waco, Texas, experimented last season with two pens of chicks, both 
from the same hatch. One pen he fed Conkey's. The other pen he fed a "just 
as good as Conkey's" feed. In a few weeks the Conkey-fed chicks were a third 
larger than the others and much more healthy and thrifty. 


^^ THE ORIGINAI. --*^^ 


Never So Successful 
UntU He Used Conkey's 

U. R. Fishcl, Breeder of the fam- 
ous Fishel's White Plymouth 
Rocks, Hope, Indiana, is a man 
who has experimented with 
everything, and his opinion is 
conclusive. He writes: 

"For the past three years we have 
used Conkey's Buttermilk Starting 
Feed exclusively in starting thousands 
of our Fishel White Plymouth Rock 
chicks. We never had the success with 
chicks that we have had since using 
your Starting Feed."

It prevents the big losses due to weakness and disease and gives your chicks 
the quick, snappy getaway that produces early broilers and layers. 1 he lactic 
acid in the buttermilk puts an edge to the appetite; strengthens and tones 
up the sensitive digestive organs of the little chicks, and helps to sweep 
away the germs that cause White Diarrhea. 

It is an appetizing combination of pure sweet grain and concentrated, sani- 
tary Buttermilk, scientifically proportioned and combined by a social 
Conkey process-in which Semi-Solid Buttermilk is blended with the grains 
and milled and balanced in the Original Conkey Way.

February, 1924 













Regardless of Winter's blasts, snow and 
ice, and all that goes to make up cold Janu- 
ary and February there is something in 
"Old Sol" in his slant on these smiling 
afternoons that makes us know that spring 
is in the offing. Glorious Spring, the sea- 
son when all nature is awake in beauties in- 
describable, the season of work for every 
poultry keeper, yet a harvest time as well; 
truly a season of opportunity. 

Thousands of Everybodys' subscribers 
are beginners with poultry this Spring of 
1924. We have made sure of that, i. e., 
that in circulation effort we would place 
Everybodys as a monthly visitor in as many 
homes as possible where husband or wife 
or both have become interested in keeping 
poultry and who right now are in the mar- 
ket for purchases of all kinds of poultry 
Equipment, as well as Breeding Birds, 
Hatching Eggs and Baby Chicks, this say- 
ing nothing of the other thousands of our 
readers who will spend thousands upon 
thousands of dollars in purchases of all 

TTiis little reminder here is primarily to 
the breeder having stock, chicks and hatch- 
ing eggs for sale, the breeder with a vision 
only, perhaps, but yet who has quality 
stock, the kind that will do some one a lot 
offgood to own and whose ambition is to 
build a demand for his or her strain of 
fowls. We say to you, "Now is the oppor- 
tune time," right now, beginning with the 
March issue of Everybodys, let the world 
know what you are doing with poultry. 
Build a Reputation and which is Demand 

for your strain of fowls — that those inter- 
ested in your variety, or those who have 
not as yet settled on a variety, may be at- 
tracted to your line. 

Everybodys goes into every State in the 
Union, every Province of Canada and to 
Foreign Lands as well. Everybodys is read 
simply because it is good, it is a magazine 
that is RELIED ON as is evidenced by 
glowing reports of advertisers. READERS' 
CONFIDENCE we will call it— and we be- 
lieve you will agree it is rightly earned. Our 
motto is "Make it good for the subscriber 
and it is bound to pay the advertiser." 

Our Advertising Department is at your 
service. You have only to write us for 
rates and information, same will be furnished 
the day your request is received. Give this 
matter consideration and decide now to 
build on a solid foundation. 

March Everybodys will be a repetition of 
this one in interest to every subscriber, as 
will all the ones to come — we striving all 
the time to make the Next number Better 
than the Last. If you have Stock, Eggt,

Boston's Marvelous Poultry Show 

Xhe Winter Fancier's Poultry Exhibit of America. A mammoth exhibit of superb birds featured 
in great quality classes with valuable winning records made. Beauty classes of Brahmas, 
Plymouth Rocks, Wyandottes, Reds, Leghorns, Giants, Orpingtons, Ham- 
burgs, etc. A record attendance with even more Standard- 
Bred Poultry interest noted. 

Boston has added one more suc- 
cessful poultry exhibit to its long 
list of annual shows and although 
we cannot give the exact number of 
this one in its proper rotation, we 
can truthfully say that it was the 
best of the 25 Boston Shows that 
we have seen in quality and quantity 
of birds, in attendance, progress and 

Never before have so many people 
commented upon the fine quality, the 
grand condition and the great classes 
that the breeders brought to exhibit 
here. Praise was offered on every 
side. Satisfaction was complete and 
it was very evident that those who 
made this exhibit possible as well as 
the public that came in great num- 
bers to view it were pleased at the 
results attained. 

There is no question as to who is 
the guilty party for this and the past 
Boston Show successes. It is that 


same man, W. B. Atherton, whose 
hair has turned gray with time but 
whose spirit for the fancy and love 
for his fellow breeders and the 
Standard-bred poultry industry has 
ever kept him active with the result 
that we can well place him foremost 
in the ranks of accomplishment for 
his worth and value, to you and I — 
to every one who loves poultry, pige- 
ons, etc., or has an interest in any 
section of the industry. If you talk 
to Mr. Atherton, he belittles his 
work, but there are those who have 
followed him for years and years 
who well know the success he has 
made and the credit that is due him. 
May he ever receive it. 

The next Boston Show will be the 
seventy-fifth anniversary of Ameri- 
can poultry shows and special efforts 
will be made to make this the great- 
est of all poultry exhibits. Bear this 
in mind, friends, and make your 

plans now to come to Boston in Janu- 
ary, 1925. You owe this to poultry 
and to Mr. Atherton. 

The general plan of the exhibit 
was about the same as usual with its 
evergreen decorations and displays 
of choice wild and domesticated 
fowls and birds near the entrance. 
Following were the exhibits of feeds 
and poultry supplies and an un- 
usually large and fine display of 
poultry houses, chick coops, brood- 
ers. Bird houses, etc. In the rear of 
this were the turkeys, pigeons, etc., 
and above in the gallery were the 
geese, ducks and pet stock. The 
main building, one of the largest and 
best of its kind in the country, was 
the general poultry exhibit and upon 
the stage the junior exhibits. AH 
birds were shown in single coops in 
single tiers — all had equal chance 
and the best of care.

J. W. OSSEGE HATCHERY, Oept. a Ottawa, Ohia 


cataloffne, numbered 5,950 ])ird8 which in. 
eluded l.:i.'H» piROons and 295 entries in pet I 
Ktofk. This formed a record poultry show I 
for lio8t«)n with all the Standard varietieg ' 
well represented. In viewing the hirdg «« 
noted a uniformity that was pleasing, gupij 
I'ven quality insures competition which ii 
always had here to add double value to the 
awards. The judsrinK was in the main very 
satisfactory, it was nuickly done and the 
marked catalnt^ue in hand for the infonnn- 
tion of the pCiblic. Boston is a cood sollinc 
show and its record for sales again sur- 
passed all former exhibits. 

There were feature birds and feature ex- 
hibits in about every class and variety seen 
here but the three outstanding features were 
the record winnings made by John S. Mar- 
tin with his famous White Wyandottes, Har- 
old Tompkins with his Rhode Island Rtnig 
and the well known Grove Hill line of Sin- 
le Comb Brown Leghorns of Wm. EUery 

John S. Martin made his third exhibit 
and his third great Boston record here by 
winning first, second and third cocks, sec- 
ond, fifth and sixth hen, first, second and 
fifth cockerel, second, fourth and sixth pul- 
let, first, second and third old pen, second, 
fourth and sixth young pen, gold medal for 
best display (with 97 points), specials for 
host shape and color males, best color fe- 
male, best cock and four hens, best cockerel 
and four pullets and the New England 
Hroeders' silver cup, etc., completing a rec- 
ord that has never been approached here in 
tho largest class of the show (199 birds com- 
j)cting) with '20 exhibitors competing. To 
api)re<-iate this win one had only to note 
the competition. 

In Single Comb Rhode Island Reds, with 
159 birds comi)eting. Harold Tompkins made 
his fifth great Boston show record. For five 
years this line has been a strong winner 
here and this late record again proves thin 
strnin. There were "J9 exhUutors competing 
in this beauty class and Mr. Tompkins w^n 
sixteen ]»riz«'s ini-ludinir five firsts and three 
seconds, a total of more awards than all 
others combined. 

In the class of Single Comb Brown Leg- 
horns. Wm. Kllery Bright, owner of the 
(frove Hill Poultry Farm, won every one of 
tho ten first i>rizes in tho Light and Dark 
classes and other awards including five sec- 
ond prizes. In other words he won nineteen 
prizes on nineteen entries. The real feature 
iiere (aside from the awards) was seen in 
the shape, size, style and colt r and mark- 
ings of these birds. They have the size and 
style of the best White Leghorns, the same 
long, sweeping conrave back and are full 
feathered with most excellent saddles, tail 
coverts, etc., nice heads, the bi'st of style 
and vigor noticeable in every bird. 

There were other feature birds and fea- 
ture classes that we will aim to mention in 
))roper order for this great show with its 
^'rand birds and loyal breeders and exhibit- 
ors and our wcmderful friend. W. H. .\thor- 
ton. combined deserve the best we can give 

The Classes and the Birds 
The Itoston Show is iust old fashioned 
enough to begin numbering their birds with 
the Brahmas, followiiig with Cochins. Lanif- 
shans, etc. Well, it is a good fashion to 
stick to, for we all owe much to these varie- 
ties that with their great beauty attrarte*! 
early attention and kindled the spirit of 
the fancy in the breasts of thou-ands. I 
am going to admit right now that I ppent 
more time viewing that marvelous first 
prize ])Pn of Buff Cochins than was spent 
upon any other one exhibit. First love took 
deep root. 

The Brahmas. in both Light nnd Park, 
formed large and handsome classes and w'ere 
trrandlv iudged by that veteran breeder. 
(Jeorge V. FMetcher. who weighed the birds 
and insisted on size. shat>e and nmrkings. 
The first pen of Dark Brahma*, headed hy a 
marvelous male, was as good as we have 
seen. , 

Cochins, in all varieties, were shown ana 
besides the first Buff pen mentioned there 
werf» manv b'rds to a<1mire. 

Black Langshans have a strong hold in 
New Kngland ami ovcrv year a fine cla*" 
is formed here. The 72 birds shown tni* 
year were conspicuous for their everi qualii>- 
fine size and oxtra god surface color. 

Plsrmouth Bocks . 

Barred Plymouth Ro< ks numbered i»«> 
birds which poos to show that this old f«v- 
rrite is ever painine in favor and ii ""*^^.T, 
Our delight was to again see the Grove H'''

among other tirizfs won third, fifth and "'^'^

not at their best. But they are very promis- 

February, 1924 



Third, also 
was one of 

Cocks — A fine class with several birds 
fullv finished. The winner the great star 
of the class, fine shape and .strong rare color. 

lleuB — Clean cut straight barring, fine 
contrast in color, good sizo and shape. Sec- 
ond very nice in every requirement. Third, 
a model in form. No. 177 (Shaylor) a ruro 
heu. The juilge considered her u shade 

Cockerels — The winner had shape, stylo 
and finish. Second, style, condition and rare 
barring. Third, a young fellow of great 
form and snappy barring. No. 185 (Wood) 
and lt*7 (Shern>an) b«'auty birds. 

Pullets — First and he<'ond, vt-ry close; 
both grand birds well shown, 
a charmer. This entire class 

Pens were extra well mated and showed 
to advantage. It di<l seem that their qual- 
ity was us good us that in the single classes. 

The pullet-bred males were a rich class. 
The winning cockerel carried a wish to own 
him. Fifth cockerel (Arey) not fully fin- 
ished but one that carries great promise; 
we can only think of him as a wonder bird. 

There were 112 White Rocks which 
formed about the best class ever seen at 
Boston. The general shape and condition 
of the birds made it most attractive. 

Cocks— First, a model in form with rare 
finish and condition. Second and otliurs, all 
very worthy. 

Hens — First was just right at her best, 
a wonder in body shape and carriage. Sec- 
ond ran a strong race for honors; excellent 
condition, nice head, eyes, etc. 

Cockerels — Perhaps the strongest of the 
classes. First, a large bird of good form 
and condition. Second, typical and had 
rare condition; very fine body and breast; 
deep rich eyes and golden yellow legs. 
Third, the best head we have seen on a 
White Rock and as good form, with a mite 
more weight probably unbeatable. No. '2'JS 
(Whitman) a very attractive form, style 
and finish. 

Pullets — First, a chico bird with shape 
and size and tho best of conditions. Such 
are due to win any show. There was an 
abundance of quality in this class. 

Pens — The winners in both old and young 
were of the choicest. The first young i>en 
stood out strong, a credit to its bre»'der. 

The exhibit of nearly lOO ButT Plymouth 
Rocks was larger than for some yoars and 
showed a marked improvement over la^t 
year. Judge Cook has the right idea of buff 
y)\0T and the breeders have gained by fol- 
lowing his work. 

Partridge and Silver Penciled Rocks wore 
about the usual classes seen Aere. 

Columbian Itocks, a very strong class with 
two great breeders. Henry L. Wilbur and 
DufBeld Farms, competing and both winning 
strong. The birds showing excellent shape 
with beauty color and markings. 

The class of White Wyandottes was the 
largest at the show and from first to last, 
one «if the best in quality ever brought to- 
gether. High and uniform quality was the 
rule, the average of form was very hiirh 
while fine heads were the rule and condition 
at its best. 
-, Cocks — First, we would name this fellow 

The Honorable" for every honor we could 
bestow belongs to him. We can gloat over 
his wondor form, his style and carriage, his 
sound color and other features, but we must 
specially mention his vigor which is the 
basis of all quality. Vitalitv was seen in 
all his line (J. S. Martin ""Regal") but 
never to better advantage than in this bird. 
He simply wa-s the goods. Second and 
third, both of the same line with the same 
characteristics. An even dozen more here 
that had to be considered for place. 

Hens — A choice collection, condition had 
much to do with the awards here. In size 
and form with nice heads it was a likeable 

Cockerels — A very strong class of grand 
birds. First and second, very much alike 
in form and eharacteristics and both well 
finished in back and tails. Third and others 
worthy birds. No. 597 (Mirimichi) a splen- 
did fellow shown in dandy condition. 

Pullets — First, a well shown bird; we 
thought a little short. Second, a very su- 
perior bird in form and finish. Deep full 
oody of right length; excellent head, back 
*nd tail. Third, a very neat bird, shows 
yell. Fourth, just about the rig!it thin;: 
m every way. 

Old Pens — First, second and third, all 
grandly mated : all of the same line and 
*U of highest worth. The males an excep- 
tional lot of magnificent birds with size and 
«hape and with deep full breasts and bodies. 

Young Pens — First and second, nearly 
equal. First, grandly mated headed by a 
strong character male. Second, very high 
quality in every bird. Other pens very 
choice and worthy. 

This class wa.s highly pleasing, showing 
the up-to date Wyandotte form with good 
length and depth of body at its best. Color

Arthur G. Duston, Supt. 

all through was of the soundest grade, the 
l)urp white plumage showing strong in con- 
trast to the rich yellow legs and deep rod 

Silver Wyandottcs were splendid in qual- 
ity but not as large a class as last year. 
The feature here was the four winning pul- 
lets AVilliams' that were grandly lacod with 
open centers and showing fine forms. 

Golden, Partridge and Silver Penciled 
Wyandottes formed good classes with sev- 
eral superior birds. Color, markings and 
shape, all along the same right lines. 

Buff Wyandottes were a feature class 
with 141 birds competing. Here was beau- 
tiful Wyandotte type and the rich buff color 
seen at its best. Well finished birds were 
the rule. The evenness of quality color 
was very noticeable here. 

Columbian Wyandottes were 79 birds 
strong and a highly commendable class. 
They were the equal to the Brahmas in 
contrast of color and markings and the 
heads were excellent. Wing markings were 
extra and tail finishings with abundance of 
feathers very good. 

Rhode Island Beds 
Boston is close to the original home of 
the Reds and as may be expected they are 
very popular here and are bred to their 
choicest and highest quality by several able 
breeders who annually exhibit here. The 
entry on the Single Combs was very large 
(169) and very attractive. Shape was a 
feature with size and sound color in which 
grand jirogress has been made. 

Cocks — ^tMrst, a large clean colored bird, 
finished, nice shape and style. Second and 
third, extra sound, rich color, grand shapes. 
Fourth, a beauty in form and color. No. 898 
(Mirimichi) and 900 (H. Tompkins) very 
choice specimens in every way, well finished 
and rare color, wings and tails. 

Hens — First, a beauty bird with grand 
quality, shape and finish extra. Other win- 
ners and others strong compeition. Fifth 
and sixth looked excellent to us. 

Cockerels — First, a real Rhode Island 
Red in every way with second and third 
up close all of the same line and of the 
same shape and quality; a grand class show- 
ing color at its best. 

Pullets — First, wo believe here one of the 
two best pullets seen. She also won shape, 
color and championship specials. She is a 
wonder. Second, nice color. Third, resem- 
bles the winner but is younger; a bird of 
promise. Several other stars here. 

Pens in old and young were splendidly 
mated. Shape a feature and evenness of 
color another. First and second old and 
young strong favorites and winners. 

In the Rose Comb Reds we believe a few 
slips were committed in the awards. The 
classes were good with high quality birds 
in numbers and made a beautiful showing. 
Cocks — The winners, with good shape, 
size and carriage and very good color, were 
a feature. 

Hens — Several nice birds here. Color 
very good. 

Cockerels — First, a young, rather small, 
fine bird of nice color; a little more rooster 
is dt'sired in a winner. There was a great

difference between the first three birds tt 

Pullets — First a rare bird in color, fin© 
form and well finished. Second and third 

Old and Young Pens — In both these 
classes the first and second pens should have 
changed places. This was the popular opin. 
ion with which we fully agreed. The sec- 
ond pens in both classes were headed by 
strong, sound males with shape, color and 
heads of rare quality while the females were 
uniform in shape and matched well in color 
Single Comb Buffs were a class cf jg 
birds, they were of size and as a rule in 
good form and finish. Pen No. 2G24 was let 
down by the judge for a speck of white in 
the lobe. We have the opinion that too fine ' 
a line was drawn in calling it jxtsitivc 
enamel white. Well the judge has the last 
say and it was to disqualify one of the fin- 
est pens in shape, evenness of coh.r and 
condition that we have ever seen. 

Single Comb Whites — A great class of 
rare quality birds. The feature here was 
size and finish. Pullets, e-vtra nice and 
big; some over weight. 

Black Orpingtons, a small class of mam- 
moth size birds. 

Dark — We were somewhat disappointed in 
this class seeing the extra low down, broad 
back, bow legged birds placed under some 
of the ribbons. Extremes are not to our 
liking and not productive to best results. 

Some splendid White Cornish were seen 
in small classes. 

White Laced Red Cornish were a feature 
class with many birds of wonderful quality 
in color, markings and type. 
We will ever remember this class of Sin- 
gle Comb Brown Leghorns for their super 
quality and condition. In shape and size 
tney were most excellent, in heads very fine 
and in style of carriage, finish and marking 
of the very best. They have the equal in 
shape oif body, sweep of back, finish, with 
full low carried tails that any Leghorn owns. 
To describe the winners would bo to re- 
peat the Standard. We will omit that and 
content ourselves in saying that it was a* 
high quality a class as we ever expect to 

A p 

There was a good entry and class of Sin- 
gle Comb Whites, probably better than 
usual. The winners all choice birds with 
the fourth cockerel and first, second and 
third pullets feature birds. 

Single Comb Buff and Black and Rose 
Comb Brown and White were small classes. 

Single Comb Blacks formed a strong class 
of nice big birds. Size surely was an at- 
traction in the winners here and they also 
carried features in shape, color and head 

Jersey Black Giants 

Jersey Black Giants, with a class of 145 
birds, were one of the leading attractions 
of the entire exhibit. There is great and 
an ever increasing interest in this variety 
and we with others were kept busy directing 


The White Wyandott« class at the Chicago Coliseum, December, 1923, was one of 
wonderful quality thronghout, and the winnings made by K. H. ZWick established a r?^'* 
at this show, in fact, was one of the feature displays. The complete winnings of Mr. Zwick 
appeared in January Everybodys. Here is a farm devoted to the breeding of high quality 
exhibition birds, and as well being bred true to Standard, that are ideal for general PU^P^'Jr: 
Arthur O. Duston, as farm superintendent, plus the ideal conditions as provided o^ *Tf 
plant, mean that great things can be expected in the furtherance of this popular AmericsD 
variety. The Coliseum Show winnings are but a forerunner.

inquirers to their section. We thought the 
winners were well selected, at least thero 
were no "kicks," the breeders being good 
winners and excellent losers, ai» the case 
may be. 

To our notion the feature of this great 
<'las.s was the first old jien (Wilburtha) the 
five birds weighing (iO pounds, all of the 
same shape and size and with excellent 
color. Surely they deserve their name. 

To see this class of GO single entries of 
Buttercups was to become an everlasting 
friend of this beauty and attractive variety. 
The birds were splendid and each shows 
the progress made. In size, form and head 
points the birds were excellent, while their 
color and markings, both rich and beautiful. 
First cock, first and second hens and eocK 
erels and first pullets were real charmers. 
Other Varieties 

Hamburgs, at> usual, were large and 
strong classes. Yearly, Boston has the 
lliiniburgs to show in all varieties. The 
Blacks and Silver Spangled were the most 
p(<pular in numbers. 

Polish, in all varieties of color, were at- 

Anconas, in both Sidgle and Rose Combs, 
were hot quality classes. Uood size and 
nice color here. 

IMuo Andalusians, a good sized class of 
good birds. 

Campines, Games, Sussex, Houdan.'<. 
Faverolles, Rhode Island Whites and Chan- 
teclers were small classes of good birds. 

Bantams, a large entry in all varieties. 

Turkeys, geese and ducks formed great 
classes, the turkeys especially made a rari 

Notes of the Show 

The annual Boston banquet, as usual, wa.*- 
most successful — thanks to Atherton ant 

some of the "Red" men. 

• • • 

We all missed Mr. Delano and his Owen 
Farm liirds. "Del" came later to see the 

show and book some orders awaiting him. 

• * • 

Captain Ambrose Gaines, of Knoxville, 
Tenn.. was a visitor on Saturday. The Cap- 
tain breeds Dark Cornish. Jersey Black 

Oiunts and good fellowship. 

• * • 

,Iohn S. Martin stayed the week, lookinff 
after his great winners. This is his third 
Boston record, one that will stand for sume 

time — perhaps until he comes to beat it. 

• * • 

Victor Bradley devotetl all his time to a 
study of the Barred Rocks shown. He re- 
ports having a large stock of quality birds 

and does not expect to exhibit this year. 

• * • 

The Sabrina Farm did not exhibit for 
competition. . They had their nsual disjilay 
of sales birds and sold out. This line has 
been bred for show and j)roduction records 

and has made (rood. 

• * • 

It is always a pleasure to meet "Jack" 
Payne, of Payne Bros. (Rhode Island Reds) 
"Jack" is so pood natured and such a good 
loser that I fear sometimes the judge take: 
advantage of him. We with others like.^ 

his second pen very much. 

• * • 

W. H. Saart, of the Mirirait-hi Farm, is 
one of Boston's famous standbys. He proved 

a good winner in his three varieties. 

• * « 

Judge F. G. Cook had his hands full with 
that big class of big White Rocks. Well, he 
selected good ones for his winners — there 

was great quality to i»ick from. 

• * • 

The usual display of the Homestead 
Carnitine . Farms were a missint; feature this 
year. This line « f Silver Camjtines adds 
quality to any show. 

• * • 

Judge Woodward di«T>Iayed a rare peii 
of his Barred Rocks. The male, in shape 
and color, was a beaut v' and the females 

were birds of great worth. 

• * • 

If yon ever w«nt to pet the right "Germ 
for the Hen Fever" you want to meet Wm. 
Kllery Bright and have him show you his 
charming Single Comb Brown Leghorns. To 
this man as a breeder and champion of 
Standard breeding for over 40 years, every 

credit is djie.

Now don't forget. The next Boston Show,

incubators and hrooders 

It is not sentiment that 
prompts this preference but 
cold -blooded business. The 
incubator that hatches the 
largest number of the strong- 
est chicks is the incubator 
that makes the mo3t money 
for its owner, and the brooder 
that raises those chicks to 
maturity without losing a lot 
of them by death means real 
money in the bank— that's 
why nearly three-quarters of 
a million successful poultry- 
men PREFER the Buckeye. 

It is a literal fact that thou- 
sands and thousands have 
actually **junked" their old 
incubators and brooders of 
various makes, to make way 
for modern Buckeye equip- 
ment. Don't Gamble! Buck- 
eye Incubators and Brooders 
INSURE your success from 
the start. 

Buckeye Incubators hatch 
175 million chicks a year- 

hatching every hatchable egg 
and bringing forth ths finest, 
healthiest chicks. And more 
than 1 50 million chicks a year 
are raised by the famous 
Buckeye System of Colony 

These facts insure your suc- 
cess with Buckeye 


More Buckeyes are sold year- 
ly than the combined total 
of the next three leading 
manufacturers. More Buck- 
eyes are exported to foreign 
countries than the total of 
fl// other manufacturers. Al- 
most every one of the great 
agricultural colleges uses 
Buckeye equipment. 1600 
of the most successful baby 
chick hatcheries use Buckeye 
Mammoth Incubators. 
Buckeye ranks first in all 
four branches of poultry 
equipment manufacture: 

commercial incubators, mam- 
moth incubators, blue-flame 
brooders and coal -burning 
brooders. Buckeye Incuba- 
tors are made in all sizes, from 
65 eggs to 600; and Mam- 
moth Incubators up to 10,368- 
egg capacity. Buckeye 
Brooders tremade in all sizes 
up to 1,200 chicks; coal, oil 
and gas burning. 


How can I save my chicks 
from dying in the shell?*' 

' * How can I prevent the fright- 
ful mortality due to faulty 

The Buckeye "Reason Why" 
catalog answers these vital 
questions and many more. 
It tells why Buckeye Incu- 
bators hatch every hatchable 
egg, with hardly a weakling 
among them. And why Buck- 
eye Colony Brooders raise 
them all to maturity. Send

World's Record 

For years we have been lell- 
ing the readers of Everybodyt 
Poultry Magazine what our 
birds have been doing for us in 
the great shows and in the egg 
laying contests. Perhaps it will 
be interesting for a change to 
hear what our birds are doing 
for our customers. Watch our 
ads for the next few months 
and find out. The following it 
a copy of a letter from Prof. 
L. F. Payne, of the Kansas 
Agriculture College, at Man- 
hatten, Kansas: 

"You and others interested 
in the Jersey Black Giants will 
probably be glad to hear the 
records of a trio of Black Giants 
purchased by the Poultry De- 
partment of the Kansas State 
Agricultural College last year 
from Mr. M. L. Chapman, of 
Trenton Junction, New Jersey. 
The two hens have just finished 
their first year's production, one 
laying 162 eggs and the other 
247. 54 strong chicks were 
hatched from 84 eggs set, near- 
ly all of which developed to be 
handsome birds and typical of 
the breed." 

— Prof. L. F. Payne. 

So far as my knowledge goes 
this production of 247 eggs is a 
world record to date for the 
Black Giants trapnested by re- 
liable parties.

Do not entertain the idea that because 
prepared poultry feeds cost a trifle more 
per pound than do the ordinary grains and 
ground feeds that they are any costlier \V . 
believe that most of the prepared 'eeds are 
»old at a very close price and when results 
•re considered are in fact the c»>eaPest a;- 
well as the best to use. Knowing the com^

The wonderful Cleveland Show, 
staged in Cleveland's grand Public 
Hall, December 11 to 16, 1923, is 
now history. It proved to be, as was 
freely predicted, the finest quality 
show ever held in this city. In size, 
it is only necessary to state that 
there were 476 more specimens of 
poultry than last year; birds had to 
be cooped in space usually given over 
to concessions. Cleveland is indeed 
fortunate in being able to secure 
such a beautiful hall for their ex- 
hibition, which was artistically laid 
out, also decorated with palms and 
evergreens, creating a sight rarely 
seen at our average poultry show. 
The same organization — Frank C. 
Stier, Pres.; J. B. Holmden, Treas., 
and J. 0. Somers, Supt. — that hand- 
led their first exhibition, had charge 
of "this one, the eleventh, who, with 
C. A. Hanriksen, as secretary, assist- 
ed by the other members of the asso- 
ciation, is the answer to what a 
group of fanciers can accomplish 
who lay out a plan and stick to it. 

The annual banquet and party, 
Thursday evening of show week, 
held in the lounge room of the Hol- 
lenden Hotel, was voted as being 
better than all previous ones, which 
to those who have enjoyed them in 
the past, speaks for itself. It is 
recognized as the finest social event 
held in connection with any of the 
country's shows. Close to 200 poul- 
trymen and friends enjoyed the 
evening — further evidence of what 
the fancier spirit, coupled with har- 
mony and co-operation, can produce. 

All classes were well filled, but as 
is usually the case, some were 
stronger than others. In Brahmas. 
over 200 specimens were shown — a 
fine tribute to the officers of the 
newly organized Brahma Club. The 
national meeting of the Single Comb 
Brown Leghorn Club brought out 
the leading breeders of the country, 
with to 200 birds; the Eastern 
District Meet of the Rhode Island 
Red Club attracted over 350, and 
the National Winter Meet of the 
American Bantam Association, over 
900. Just analyze these figures, 
with record entries in White Leg- 
horns, Wyandottes, Jersey Giants, 
Buff Orpingtons, Barred Rocks, and 
many others, and it will give you a 
fair idea of what a show it was. 



The time has come for the Ameri- 
can breeders of Standard-bred poul- 
try and the manufacturers of poultry 
supplies to go after foreign trade 
and the man to lead the way has 
been found in D. Lincoln Orr, the 
secretary and manager of the Madi- 
son Square Garden, N. Y., Show and 
a judge and breeder of record. 

Mr. Orr is going to Argentine to 
judge their poultry and as the repre- 
sentative of such breeders who may 
wish to send birds for exhibition and 
sale and also to introduce American-

Tke International Baoy Chick Association 

Is Forging Right Aneaa 

The ^Rapid Formation of Active State Baoy Chick Associations J^eans 

S^uch for the Future of the Industry 

By Prof H. R. LEWIS, President 

The constant desire to serve the industry and 
its members, are the primary factors wh^ch lie 
behind the nnjrecedented success which has fol- 
lowed the activities of the Inte^'national Baby 
Chick Association since its organization, nine 
years ago. The current year of the Association 
will, without doubt, be the most 
prosperous and progressive which it 
has ever experienced. This wonder- 
ful progress can be measured first 
by the marked increase in member- 
ship which is taking place. With a 
membership during the past two or 
three years with around two hun- 
dred, representing a great many 
States as well as Canada, it looks 
now as though at the close of the 
current year, the membership would be over 
five hundred, and may possibly reach eight hun- 
dred or a thousand. This marked increase in 
membership is accounted for in part by the 
policy of the International Baby Chick Asso- 
ciation, in encouraging the formation of local 
baby chick associations in those States where 
the industry is of sufficient prominence to war- 
rant same. Already the following States have 
their own baby chick groups and are affiliated 
with the International Baby Chick Association: 
Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Iowa, Missouri, Wiscon- 
sin, New Jersey, Virginia, and even a larger 
number are perfecting their local organizations, 
with the idea of affiliating immediately. Mem- 
bership in a local affiliated baby chick associa- 
tion, carries with it, membership in the Inter- 
national Baby Chick Association. The Inter- 
national Association, on the other hand, works 
with the local group to build up their own or- 
ganization, and does not accept membership 
from affiliated States, except when it comes 
through the local group. 

The Publicity Program 

The publicity program of the International 
Baby Chick Association will be conducted along 
similar lines that proved so successful during 
the past two seasons. The monies made avail- 
able for publicity work are secured through 
voluntary pledges from the members and through 
substantial contributions from allied industries. 
The Association is in the process of raising a 
budget between ten thousand and twenty thou- 
sand dollars for this work this coming year. Its 
publicity work will be carried on through farm 
papers, poultry journals, and a new departure 
which will be tried out this year, is the use of 
some fifteen to twenty large metropolitan pa- 
pers, having a large rural circulation, which 

papers make a specialty of maintaining Poultry 
Departments, and catering to the needs of the 
poultryman. The object of this publicity work 
is to sell the baby chick idea and to show the 
consuming public the wonderful value possessed 
by poultry and eggs as human food and their 
place in the human diet. Supple- 
menting this feature publicity, the 
Association is preparing and distri- 
buting thousands of press notices 
Lt% and popular articles, which will have 
for their object, the furthering of 
these two important aims. 

The Annual Convention 
The annual convention of the In- 
ternational Baby Chick Association 
will be held at Chicago 111., at one 
of the large beach front hotels the first week in 
August. It will be a really worth while conven- 
tion with a wonderful educational program, edu- 
cational exhibition, an exposition and baby chick 
show, at which all appliances used in the produc- 
tion, sale and distribution of baby chicks will be 
shown. Full information regarding this conven- 
tion will appear in subsequent issues of the farm 
and poultry press. 

We are living in a period of organization. We, 
but well organized particles of matter called 
human beings, are beginning to realize that just 
as we are successful as individuals through the 
proper co-ordination and organization of our 
body, so as an Association or as groups of indi- 
viduals having a particular object in view, we 
can succeed only in proportion as we work 
through our particular organization or group. 
The International Baby Chick Association is 
making a very creditable record on the basis of 
service to an industry and the individuals, both 
producers' and consumers which go to make up 
the baby chick business. Every person inter- 
ested in the activities of this organization should 
write to the Office of the Managing Director, 
Davisville, R. I., and secure literature which will 
tell them in detail of the aims, purposes and ac- 
complishments of this big national organization. 
To every baby chick producer, we wish you a 
most prosperous and successful year. Your pros- 
perity and success means the prosperity and suc- 
cess of the poultry industry as a whole. Yours 
for the safe, sane, prosperous development of 
baby chick production in America. 

Folks, we wish you a most successful New

The Chicago National Show 

A monster exhibition of charming quality and worth while breeders of the North, East, South and 
West meet to compete for National Show Honors. A marvelous display of S. C. Bufi 
' Orpingtons, superb classes of Barred and White Rocks, S. C. White 

Leghorns and S. C. Rhode Island Reds, Etc. A quality 

exhibit, meeting the approval of a 

record attendance. 

This ^eat Chicago National Show 
of 1924 was from first to last a huge 
success and most pleasing to us. If 
we were asked in what special or par- 
ticular way, our reply would be for 
the fact that "The Spirit of Standard- 
bred Poultry Progress was in clear 
and abundant evidence here." Here 
were famous strains of birds compet- 
ing in about every class, and here also 
were the novice breeders and exhibit- 
ors, each pulling to win and each, in 
the same breath hoping that the best 
may win, and win or lose, promising 
to come back again for the next with 
improved birds to improve ^their rec- 

While we have never been short in 
our confidence in Standard-breeding 
and quality, shows like this National 
add to our stock, urging us on to ever 
^eater efforts and Jjroving that our 
breeders who exhibit and make such 
shows possible demand every effort 
and that to them this and every 
credit is due. 


The officers and members of the 
National Association are well known 
breeders and fanciers and their one 
idea is to annually put on a show 
that is a credit to the industry. We 
have attended all but one of their 
many exhibits, have noted the prog- 
ress made year by year, and compli- 
mented the members for the good 
work done and the advancement 
made. Their efforts have not been 
in vain. President MacKenzie, Secre- 
tary D. E. Hale and Superintendent 
Thos. Windrom know the demands of 
the exhibitors and public alike and 
cater to their wants most satisfactor- 
ily. The good old fancier's spirit is 
in evidence here at all times. 

The show hall, for light and con- 
venience, is one of the best in this 
country and the arrangement of the 
exhibits under the personal care of 
Albert Keipper, of the Keipper Coop- 
ing Company. Single tiering is fol- 
lowed here with all coop benches 
draped, making a fine appearance 

and adding beauty to the exhibit. 
With Keipper cooping, as arranged 
here, one can see the entire exhibit 
of any one class at a glance, and this 
feature has a great advantage. 

We feel that we and every poultry 
interest owe much to the work and 
exhibits this association yearly pre- 
sents and we hope the readers will 
realize this from the above. It is in 
fact a National Show, one of great 
benefit to the industry where annual 
progress is noted. 

Here we were pleased to meet 
Governor Len Small, who not only 
offered the "Great Trophy" for best 
display in the entire show, but who is 
himself a breeder and fancier and 
who has supported every effort of 
the breeders in his state. 

Birds from every section of the 
country and Canada were competing 
here for honors. Quality was the 
rule and most excellent classes with 
strongest competition tl:e evident

Hhow was the Single Comb Buflf Orpin^ona 
Never before was there such a class of birds 
brought together, quality and superb condi- 
tion were the features and Judge Oke proved 
himself a master and placed the awards most 

Harred Rocks, Single Comb Reds, Single 
Comb White Leghorns, White Rocks and 
White Wyandottes followed close in size 
quality and interest. It took the best of 
quality to win. and the quality was here for 
the judges to j»lace. 

The National Show is making evident prog. 
ress yearly. Famous strains by famous 
breeders come here for their honors and re- 
sults in quality which assures worthy com- 
petition and adds value to the honors. vVe 
note here a companionship between the ex- 
hibitors that is most promising, one that 
should ever be commended and improved 
upon, and one that is given every oppor- 
tunity to grow and spread here. Let us ever 
have more and more of this. 

Sinffle Comb BufI Orpingtons 
First i)lace here belongs to the Single 
Comb liuff Orpingtons. The marvelous class 
was the delight of all for here were our 
foremost breeders competing for honors that 
carry unusual prestige with them. 

The Bonnie Brae Farm proved the great 
winner, as the awards show. This line has 
made several great records, but never one to 
conii>are with this. Besides their regular 
awards, they won the "Governor's Cup" for 
best display in the entire show, gold medal 
for best display in Orpington class, best 
shaped, best colored and champion female, 
best "cock with three cockerels, his get," 
best "hen with three pullets, her get," etc. 
Bear in mind this record was made in the 
feature class of this season. L. Black, the 
owner, has met all comers and the honors are 

In connection with the above we extend 
our compliments to George Moore who con- 
ditioned the Bonnie Brae birds at this and 
for their previous exhibits. Mr. Moore is 
an old time breeder and a master handler 
and his efforts deserve credit as this line was 
in the "pink of condition." 

The Campbell Soup Farm liirds were in 
charge of Manager Wm. Hobbs and they won 
many exceptional awards and made a record 
to be proud of. This line was also show^n at 
its best and received the compliments of all 

The Owen Farm birds won several honors, 
each of value and distinction, while other ex- 
hibitors were in the also ran class which w»s 
no discredit to them. 

Eight prizes were placed in each class and 
it would take pages to describe the birds, so 
just let us say that they were beauties, close 
Standard requirements, in every section mar- 
velous and formed the best class, bird for 
bird, that we have ever seen at any one show. 
There were 223 birds oomi)eting. 

Barred Plymouth Bocks 
This great class of 2:»7 birds was a clow 
second in general favor for both its quantity 
and quality. The winners and many others 
were of the exceptional kind with splendid 
forms and color and barring of the choicest 
kind. The general evenness of high grade 
quality was very evident. It is a credit to 
these breeders. 

Among the most prominent winners here 
was J. A. Schneider.* of the Itoyal Puritan 
Poultry Yards. LeRoy. Minn. This line was 
a prominent winner here last year and made 
a most substantial record here this year. 
Their first jtrize cockerel-bred hen and pen, 
along with first exhibition hen, were feature 
birds. Mr. Schneider has made a specialty 
of Barred Rocks for many years and has 
shown us a line here for two years that car 
ries much promise. 

'other breeders of note here were John Mc- 
Pherson, who as usual won first cockerel; 
F. C. Ziemer. K. A. Webb, W. E. Russell, Dr. 
Anthony, Fitz Farms, etc. 

Wlilte Plymouth Bocks 
A royal quality class with birds from Can- 
ada competing. W. H. Halbacli & Son ex- 
hibited in pons only and won all awards, aj 
usual, from first to fifth. This display of 
pens was conspicuous for their rrre quality 
and general evenness, they were alike m 
form, carriage and size snow white plumage 
and strong vellow legs. This is one of our 
oldest and best lines of White Rocks with a 
great many years of careful breeding back oj 
it, one that yearly looks better and proves of 
greater worth. , 

L. A. Hay, one of Canada's famous breed- 
ers, exhibited here for the first time and 
made a splendid record. His first, second 
and third prize pullets were of the appcalinf 
kind with most excellent forms and finish. 
White Wyandottes 
We have never been di-^appointed in tM 
^V^lite Wyandotte classes at the National. 
This year the class again was one of meru 


•♦». the lines of two prominent breeders 
Tti^ng winners. W. N. Davis (the sheriff)

S and variety at the National 

Tohn B Greenan has shown here for four 
vpars and made his usual record of winning 
\ZZ highest awards in pens, hens and pullets. 
Ur Greenan holds the record for winning 
the blue ribbons here for the four past con- 
aftcutive years. 

Charles Keeler spent a day at the show, 
.hnwing the effects of his late sickness. Mr. 
VAPler told of his fine birds and was very 
enthusiastic over the future poultry pros 

^**^*'' Single Comb Wlilta Leghorns 

A zreat class of 177 birds judged by the 
veteran A. C Smith. This was a superior 
1\1m with many fine birds in every class. 
Competing here were F. A. Rogers who won 
strong and well with his popular line, and 
n A Wilson who has every reason to be 
vprv proud of his almost clean sweep in 
Dullets First pullet a remarkable bird in 
form nice head and the best of style. 

Mr Rogers made what is a show record 
we believe, in this class; being particularly 
Ttrone in males with nice heads and good 
finish W. N. Davis, W. J. Govern, Jr., and 
T H ApP** were prominent winners here. 
Single Comb Rhode Island Reds 
The exhibit of Single Comb Rhode Island 
Reds were made a quality class feature by 
the exhibit of the Owen Farms birds and I tie 
personal attendance of M. F-^ Delano who 
made another great record with his lino of 
wonder birds. We have in the i-ji^t com- 
mented on the exquisite color of the Owt-n 
Farms Reds. To our mind they are the 
ideals of the Standard in shade, the color 
that is both rich and brilliant along with the 
shape and carriage desired. Mr. Delano's 
record of winning all of the six first prizes 
with several seconds and thirds was most 
worthy and of great credit. In sameness this 
line won special attention with both m-il»s 
and females super birds. Judge W. H. Laabs, 
L. L. HJall, Mrs. A. Wilson and others were 
exhibiting here. , , j

flipht aeroK!* the Pa- 
cific from Hawaii to 
the Aleutian Isk-s— 
the last iaii<i between 
hi*> winter home and 
his .^ sunmjer 
home. What calls on 
him to take such 

neiiv is tlie worlds niijjratioM ohampion-tlie 
ARCfiC TERN— wliicli flies 'J'J.UOoinilcs over the sea. 

During the \\ inter he is not sojourning in .some nice, warm 
section of St)utli America, but is in tlie south-most lands of 
the Antarctic. When summer comes it will find the Arctic 
Tern n*)t in some temperate portion of Nofth America, but 
as far North as ever the explorer has discovered land. There, 
ill the Arctic regions, the young are reared, starting as soon 
as they are grown, to their far-south winter home. Few are 
ever seen along the Atlantic Coast- -the majority must tnake 
that 11,000-mile flight each way largely over the. ocean. J 

What is the instinct which leads thej 
Arctic Tern to take that ll,0()0-mile trip 
_ northward?---the instinct which leads the 
Pintail Duck to risk a i.OOO- mile flight across tlit 
Pacific to its Alaskan breeding ground^--the instinct 
^vhich leads the Purple Martin and Gray Cheeked Thrush 
to so greatly hasten their speed at the end of their northwarc 

The little Golden Plover flies over the" sea from 
Labrador to Brazil on its way south, yet on its way north, 
toward the Hudson Bay in Canada, flies directly up the 
Mississippi \'alley, defying the hunter's gun. What is the; 

urge it feels; what is the call it hears which is stronger 

even than the principle of self- protection? 

It is the cajl of the ^^^. 

The same call the Nighthawk hears in its winter 
home down in the Argentine, which leads it to '' 
forget the twistings and the turnings which char*' 
acterize its southward flight and to hasten north 
until perhaps in the far North Yukon, without 
even waiting to build a nest, its two speckled 
^eggs are lai(l. 

The Nighthawk travels north 7,000 miles to lay two 
eggs. There is one great American hen---LADY VICTORY 
I— which has laid 1,371 eggs in her lifetime; which travelled 
1,300 miles to lay 304 eggs in its pullet year; which can now 
say truthfully that the sun never sets on all her offspring, for 
in the coldest winters of Canada her descendants are produc- 
ing remarkable ft^^ yields in zero weather, while other 
descendants in Cuba, Mexico. Jamaica and farther south, defy 
the tropic's heat and lay, lay. lay. Over in Europe in official 
^contests— and in Hawaii and Japan, on government experi 
ment stations, her descendants are increasing the world's 
respect for America's high-record, true-bred hens.'

Brooder He 

Thousands of Successful Users 

YOU can make your own brooder, 
using the plans which have 
brought success to thousands of en- 
thusiastic poultry keepers in town and 
on the farm. 

For materials, use a packing box, a 
strip of oil cloth, a Putnam Heater and 
a handful of nails. A hammer and a 
saw are the only tools you need. In an 
hour, you can jnake a simple practical 
brooder that will do better work than 
the most expensive brooder you can 
buy. And the cost complete ready to 
receive the chicks will be only $4.96. 

This home-made brooder will accom- 
modate from 35 to 60 chicks. If you 
want to raise a larger number of 
chicks, make as many brooders as you 
need. Chicks naturally do better in 
these small flocks and there will be 
fewer losses. Some report raising 109 7o- 
The hover is so made that every 
chick can find just the degree of 
warmth it prefers for comfort. There 

is no crowding or sweating. The hover 
can be adjusted to suit the season- 
January to July. There's a cool cham- 
ber where the little fellows can exer- 
cise and grow strong and husky. 

You can run the brooder in a sunnv 
room, in an open shed, or when roofed, 
right out of doors. You can quickly 
and easily take it apart for cleaning 
and put it together again. 

The Putnam Brooder Heater is un- 
like any other. It holds a quart of oil 
and will burn 10 days without refilling 
or trimming. Costs only a few cents a 
month to operate. The flame cannot 
flare up or blow out, no matter how 
high the wind. A. H. Behr, Denver, 
Colo., reports that his Putnam Heater 
carried chicks safely through a 36-hour 
blizzard that buried the box under 3 
feet of snow. Made throughout of 
brass and heavily galvanized iron, the 
Putnam Brooder Heater is practically 

These Poultry Keepers Use and Endorse 
This Home-Made Brooder 

Received the Brooder Heaters and am 
well pleased with them. I have been using 
them a little less than three weeks and 
consider they have already paid for them- 
g^lves — Quincy L. Homes, Crosbyton, Tex. 

The' brooder Is working fine. Put forty 
chicks In when three days old and have 
raised everyone so far and they are pretty 
safe now.— S. M. Strohm. Greason, Pa. 

Send me another of your Brooder Heat- 
ers. This makes the third one I have pur- 
chased this spring. Have the other two 
operating at full capacity and have not 
had a single loss. I expected to use larger 
brooder when the chicks attained their 
present age, but find the small brooders 
operate so nicely and with a minimum of 
care that I have decided to use them alto- 
gether. — K. K. Pound. Neuman, IIL 

My little Putnam Heater Is just doing 
fine. Grant Fireston, Connellsvllle, Pa. 

I bought a Putnam Brooder Heater of 
you early this spring, and think it's just 
wonderful— so easy to care for, its better 
than a half dozen old hens, as it stays 
where you put It, always ready to mother 
Jhe chicks.— E. W. Tuggle, Flndlay. Ohio. 

I made a brooder according to your di- 
rections and placed fifteen chicks In It to 
try out and raised every one. And they 
certainly did grow, and so nice and smooth, 
too, every one of them. I put twenty at 
the same time with an old hen and she 
lost all but eight. So I took them from her 
and put them In the brooder, and raised 
them. too. It certainly beats the hen.— 
J. Lincoln Knight. Trenton Junction, N. J.

Starving for 
Vitamins * • 

A prize hen from the flock of F. 
M. Crowe of Owosso, Mich., who 
feeds Fleischmann's Pure Dry 
Yeast regularly. 

Five yeast-fed Barred Plymouth Rock 
pullets, repeatedly winners at fairs and 
shows. "We feel," writes their owner, 
Charles E. Boughner of the Trututype 
Farm, at Tacoma, Wash., "that* 
Fleischmann's Pure Dry Yeast is en- 
titled to most of the credit for putting 
the bloom on our pullets." 

M. T. Schomerhom. of Green- 
wich Village, Mass., writes: 
"I penned off a number of 
chicks to which I fed Dry Yeast; 
likewise penned off a like num- 
ber to which I did not feed it. 
Those to which I fed it attained 
a weight of 2 pounds in 8 weeks, 
while the others did not reach 
2 pounds for 11 or 12 weeks." 

" Also." he continues, "a much 
more healthy condition was 
noticeable with the chicks that 
were fed with the Dry Yeast. 
Only about 3 per cent mortal- 
ity was erpcrienced with the 
raising of the chicks." 

Nature's feed for the baby chick — 
the yolk— is rich in Vitamin B. With- 
out thifl vitamin growth absolutely 

Nourished from the yolk the first 
forty-eight hours chicks thrive. 

Upon man's selection of grains and 
by*product8 chicks often die* 

Fleischmann's Pure Dry Yeast is 
the richest source of Vitamin B in all 

nature. A spoonful at each feeding 
to 50 chicks produces wonderful re- 
sults — 8 chicks saved covers the cost 
of one can, sufficient to feed 50 chicks 
four months. It prevents diarrhoea. 

Fleischmann's Pure Dry Yeast comes 
in 2i lb. cans. It keeps indefinitely*

A happy memory is one that re- 
flects only the happy events of the 
past as a pool of water gives back 
the image of the sky only on bright 

What a thing memory is; world 
without end! By it vacant chairs 
are filled again, old scenes are lived 
over. In the memory the dead may 
live, and the living may be with us 
whenever we will, by simply think- 
ing of them. Memory repeats a 
thousand times over the little kind- 
nesses and the tender words of life. 
Of all living creatures man seems 
alone to possess the power to live 
again in the past through memory. 

Have then a happy memory. Not 
necessarily a memory that retains 

only happy incidents, but one that 
brings to the surface of conscious- 
ness only the joyous recollections 
and that forgets and buries the sad 
and wrong. There is no life without 
its shadows, but that is no reason 
why we should dwell in the shadows. 
People can develop the happy mem- 
ory refusing to brood over the un- 
toward events, but delving into the 
memory as the housewife digs into 
the attic trunks, always seeking 
bright colors. 

Happiness is a mosaic composed 
of very little stones, each one of 
them taken alone being of small 
consequence. But grouped together 
they form a pleasing whole. We 
carry with us the beauty we visit 
and the song that charms us carry it 
in the happy memory.

more are being added to the ranks every 
year. This same condition will ever pre- 
vail while the breeders aim to combine 
beauty with practical wortii. The best in

You Know 

Twelve (12) baby chicks 
start life together. They 
are separated and raised in 
two different places. One 
batch will usually stagger 
along and not amount to 
much, and the other batch 
will make the next-door 
neighbor envious. Do you 
know why? We do. 

Chiefly it's what they eat. 
Nursing baby chicks to ma- 
turity requires much more 
than "guess work.*' 

It's what they eat that de- 
termines what they will be. 
Give them a chance to 
amount to something and 
they will.

The question of location for a poultry 

farm is not near as important as it »., 
some years ago, because of the improvemenu 
in transportations, the parcel post, etc. Th 
matter of soil and cJiniate are now as then 
the factors for consideration, and thev 
should be carefully looked after. Many of 
our most progressive poultry farmn are what 
we may term hillside farms where th* 
buildings are placed on high land and thn 
range for the growing stock is over th« 
hills, through th© brush and in the vallev 
They are ideal for poultry growing viKor 
and health. ' *

the inquiry. This is due to both the ad 
vertisers and to Everybodys. Our other re- 
quest is that those who like Everybodys will 
speak a good word for it to their friendr 
and the poultrymen they meet. We shall 
appreciate all such kindnesses whether the

Progress comes through the introduction 
of new ideas into the mind. Life is the ex- 
pression of ideas. When the mind becomes 
fixed in certain habits of thought and action 
and its rigidity is not broken by frequent 
change the individual begins to lose his grip 
on life and go backward. 

Factors Affecting Fertility 

Prof. L E. CARD 

As I see it, the most interesting 
and, at the same time, the most valu- 
able characteristic of hen eggs, with 
respect to their quality for incuba- 
tion, is their ability to stand rather 
wide limits with regard to such fac- 
tors as temperature, moisture, venti- 
lation, and so on. We may say that 
the correct temperature for incubat- 
ing eg^grs is 100 degrees Fahrenheit, 
101, or 103, depending on type of in- 
cubator that we are using and the 
point at which the thermometer is 
placed. Assuming, however, that we 
have established definitely the opti- 
mum temperature, it is remarkable 
what eggs will stand in the way of 
high and low temperatures for short 
periods and still hatch. This past 
season our practice course in incuba- 
tion afforded an excellent case in 
point. Each student had fifty eggs 
in a 100-egg machine. 

One of these machines was found, 
on the fifteenth day, with the ther- 
mometer reading 115 degrees Fah- 
renheit. As it had been observed 
four hours before, the eggs could not 
have been subjected to this tempera- 
ture for longer than four hours, and 
in all probability it was for a much 
shorter time. As far as could be 
judged, from the hatching of the 
eggs, they were in no way affected. 
As a matter of fact, they hatched 
better than some of the machines 
which ran at a normal temperature. 
Professor Lamson, in his work at 
Storrs, found that eggs could be sub- 
jected to a temperature of fifty de- 
grees Fahrenheit for as long a period 

as fifteen hours after the third day 
of incubation and before the nine- 
teenth, and the strongest eggs would 
still hatch. 

Slight Variations Not Important 
As a result of );his, he suggested, 
as a test for vitality of breeders, 
that a trial hatch be run, using five 
to ten egrgs from each hen and sub- 
jecting them to this low temperature 
in order to determine which eggs 
and, consequently, which hens really 
had the "punch". I would not, for 
a moment, advocate that the hatch- 
ing temperature be allowed to vary 
or that one can neglect the manage- 
ment of the incubator to such an ex- 
tent that he can forget where the 
temperature is going. It simply 
means that reasonable variation is 
not a factor of sufficient importance 
to account for a poor hatch. 

Within limits the same thing is 
true of moisture. In other words, 
while the optimum relative humidity 
in the incubator chamber may be at 
about fifty per cent, it is neverthe- 
less true that practically as good 
hatches will be obtained from good 
eggs with the relative humidity rang- 
ing as low as thirty per cent or as 
high as sixty per cent. This again 
means that under usual operating 
conditions moisture will not be a de- 
ciding factor in causing a poor hatch. 
It should be borne in mind, however, 
that if each of several factors varies 
slightly from normal or optimum, 
the resulting effect may be just as 
bad as though one factor varied 





100% chickens! Fine, heavy, 
healthy chickens— full of life and 
vitality! That's the kind you'll 
raise if you put your chicks under 
Wishbone Brooders. 

Highest possible raising record ! Chick 
losses almost eliminated. All your livable 
chicks raised to healthful, profiuble ma- 
turity. That's the record you can make 
I with Wishbone Brooders. ' 
The Wishbone is the best way to raise 
best chickens! It's the safest, surest, 
\ brooder money can buy. It's powerful 
enough for mny weather; it's lOO^o safe 
and trouble-proof. It's the most econ- 
omical brooder to operate. 

I ItRequiresNoPrimingorPre-heating 

f You touch a match to the burner and a 
I hot blue flame shoots right up. And it's 

* a powerful and economical flame. It gets 

* more heat out of the luel than any other 
brooder ever built. We guarantee this. 

It Is Valveless! 

. Nothing to get out of order— no valves, 
I no thermostats, no strainers! The oil 
j flows down the big ^ inch feed pipe as 
i regularly and continuously as if you 
1 poured it through a funnel. That means 
! a steady, big flame— and absolutely no 
cAance of the flame going out. 

It Is a Cinch to Operate 

Nothing ever goes wrong with theWishbone. 
It takes less of your time than any brooder 
you ever saw. With its simple construction, 
there's no work to do You simply set it and 
forget It-except tor occasionally refilling ine 
Kenerous oil tank 

The Most Powerful Brooder Made 

The Wishbone Brooder can produce several 
times more heat than you'll ever need. Here's 
an actual experience that shows how Wish- 
bones operate under winter's bitterest con- 
ditions. In Ontario. Canada, a poultryman kept 
his chicks under Wishbones in a muaUn- front 
brooder house. One night the temperature 
dropped to 12° below lerol The cold was ter- 
rific. Next morning he expected to find all 
his chicks dead. Imagine his joy to find every 
one alive, chirping, moving happily about 
under the Wishbone. 

Chicks Thrive Best Under Wishbones 

Chicks simply leap into well *»«*"«""**" 
Wishbones. There's aIvvaysp/en/yo/-/rBs/i air 

just at the right height f°;th«^»^*i''»j^tele'l 
always an abundance of heat. And there s 
Ms of room for the chicks to exercise and 
grow strong. 

Most Economical! Safest! Simplest! 
Requires No Speaal House! 

The Wishbone Is unquestionably the best 
brc^dVr you can buy on every count. P"t your 
chicks under one for a week-and you U praise 
it more loudly than we do.

Ask these questions before 
YOU buy a brooder! 

1. Is it beat for tha chicka? 

The Wishbone develops the health- 
iest, strongest, besf chickens because 
there's always plenty of fresh air, 
plenty of heat, plenty of room. 

2. la it eaaieat to operate? 
The Wishbone is a cinch to operate. 
You set it, and forget it, except fo'r 
occasionally refilling the big oil tank. 

3. la it ralveleaa? 

The Wishbone has no valves, no 
strainers, no thermosUts— no^Ain^ 
to get out of order. 

4. Poea It give a blue flame 
without priming ? 
No priming, no pre-heating. Touch 
a match to the burner and a hot blue 
flame shoots right up. 

S. Doea it give plenty of heat? 

Winter's iciest blasts never bother 
Wishbones. The chicks are always 

6. la It aafe? 

There's nothing to go wrong in a 
Wishbone. The oil flow is always 
steady and continuous. The flame 
can't go out unless you turn it out.

Cut below shows the hen 
has been trapped, as you will 
notice the small lugs at the 
bottom of door. 

This cut shows the lugs have been turned to the 
Inside and the nest opened automatieally. 

Every egg saved when the hens are laying. 

Every fertile egg hatched when the hens are hatching. 

An accurate record kept of every laying hen. 

The nest will also make a good Brooder coop. 

The nest is built of heavy galvanizekl iron, is balanced by a four 
pound weight, therefore has nothing to wear out, and with ordinary care 
will last a lifetime, not the lifetime of the hen, but the lifetime of 
the owner.

Ventilation has received consider- 
able attention with respect to arti" 
ficial incubation. The result of many 
studies is that there is usually enough 
ventilation in manufactured incuba- 
tors. The carbon dioxide range dur- 
ing incubation will practically never 
be outside the limits of zero to 150 
parts of carbon dioxide in 10,000 
parts of air drawn from the egg 
chamber. The usual range is from 
thirty to sixty parts in 10,000. This 
in connection with actual experimen' 
tal evidence, would seem to indicate 
that airing of eggs is not necessary. 
Furthermore, cooling is not neces- 
sary. If the operating temperature 
is too high, then cooling will give 
good results, but with a normal tem- 
perature it is unnecessary to use up 
time and effort in cooling egg^s. 

There is one factor, however, 
which is of prime importance for 
securing best results. This is the 
turning of eggs during incubation. 
Just what the reasons for the neces- 
sity for turning may be is not en- 
tirely clear. Apparently eggs must 
be turned for the proper develop- 
ment of the chick, but no one has yet 
completely solved the question of 
why. However, this may be, there 
is ample evidence to show that the 
more times daily eggs are turned dur- 
ing incubation the more chicks will 
be hatched. Where a turning device 
is provided that makes it possible to 
turn thousands of eggs in a few 
minutes, one does not need to be con- 
cerned with the labor cost of turn- 
ing. Where eggs must be turned by 
hand or by turning trays, it is easily 
consumed in turning than the extra 
chicks hatched will be worth. Care- 
ful observation has shown that the 
hen while incubating eggs turns them 
many times during the -day, oftener 
than is ever practiced under artificial 

The Effect of Constant Turning 
In this connection the question 
has been raised as to what would be 
the effect of constant turning 
throughout the period of incubation. 
If our plans mature, we hope to find 
out, this winter, something about this 
question by arranging an incubator 
in which eggs will be constantly on 
the move from the time they are 
placed in the machine until time for 
the chicks to hatch. 

To sum up the important points in 
this rather lengthy discussion, let me 
again call your attention to the fact 
that the individual hen is the primary 
factor aflfecting both fertility and 
hatchability of eggs. Of course, it 
is easily possible to vary incubating 
conditions so that no eggs will hatch, 
but assuming reasonable manage- 
ment, the infertility and dead germ 
eggs which can be traced to the 
characteristics of individual hens 
will prove, in most instances, the 
largest factor in poor hatches. Of 
course, the obstacle to finding and 
eliminating the undesirable hens is 
the cost of trapnesting and pedigree

^ hftlching, because it is absolutely out 
' f the question to make progress in 
' ?hi8 direction without following a 
Isonably detailed scheme of pedi- 
Le records. Under certain condi- 
tions it may pay, but probably, it will 
not pay farmers for some time to 

'^^The question of incubator manage- 
ment and all the details which it in- 
volves has been fairly well worked 
out already, but I think all of you 
will agree with me that there is still 

, much to learn in this direction. By 
pooling information as it is collected 

" here and there in small quantities, 
we should, in the course of time, be 
able to operate artificial incubators 
so the loss which is due primarily to 
variation in management will be 
practically nothing. 


This disease, strange to sav, affects 
both the hens and their keepers. 
Sometimes I have seen men have 
the fever very bad before they owned 
a single hen. This is a very danger- 
ous symptom, because no one can 
tell what wiU become of the patient. 
He may become frantic and buy up 
all the hens in the neighborhood and 
run a corner on hens. The hen fever, 
like some others, ends with a chill. 
I have seen a man shake hard after . 
a high run of this fever. The man 
most subject to the hen fever is the 
man that has made a failure of all 
things he has ever undertaken and 
suddenly wishes to becom€ riph. He 
figures out the cost of several hun- 
dred hens, their keeping for a stated 
period, and their increase, and finds 
there are "millions in it." There 
Ts no business that shows up so well 

on paper. — G. H. H. 

• • • 


To begin keeping poultry with 
fixed ideas in mind, a system of 
breeding, caring and managing is 
all important. The first considera- 
tion is to get good fowls, though they 
may cost a trifle more than ordinary 
ones. A man raising prime stock is 
always pleased with their looks, con- 
dition and egg production. He knows 
that every kernel of grain fed to 
them is turned to good account. 
This alone is an incentive for one to 
bestow proper and continual care on 
them, and often a real love springs 
up and is fostered by the adiniration 
of prime fowls in the beginning.

We know of no branch of home 
industry that is better adapted to 
the task of young folks than raising 
poultry. There is amusement, re- 
creation, innocence and health in the 
employment, it is a school of nature 
and industry from the moment the 
fiVst egg is deposited in the nest un- 
til that little germ that is encased 
and hidden from view quickens and 
develops itself into the full-fledged 
cockerel or pullet.

a mammoth a money maker— on chick quality 
size of hatches and economy of operation — the 
Wishbone is guaranteed to do more than any 
other mammoth. This is not Just a claim — it 
Is a guarantee. 

If you are a big hatcher— the ^V^shbone is the 
biggest profit maker you can buy. Many of the 
country's largest hatcheries— with yearly pro- 
duction of millions of chicks have proved this 
fpr many years I 

If you've been hatching in a small way— using, 
perhaps the obsolete "lamp machines"— this is 
your ideal chance to enter the profitable, big- 
hatcher class. If you've never hatched before, 
start now. Eggs cost from 2c to 4c apiece. 
Chicks sell for 20c to 30c apiece. Hatch chicks. 

A Genuine Mammoth— 800 -egg Size 

The "Wishbone, fanious all over the world for 
the fine chicks it hatches, is the Mammoth that 
has completely eliminated hand labor and 
hatches chicks by natural safe methods. This 
same machine. in sizes up to48,000. is paying big 
profits to the great commercial hatcheries all 
over the continent. It is not to beconfused with 
lamp incubators. It is a genuine Mammoth — 
with all the Mammoth features— built by the 
man who invented the first Mammoth. 

Automatic Egg Turner ! 

With a Wishbone you don't have to do a bit of 
hand labor from the time you put the eggs in 
until you take the chicks out twenty -one days 
later. Heat and ventilation in each compart- 
ment are automatically regulated. A turn of 
the crank rolls the eggs gently over. That s all. 
These are exclusive Wishbone features. 

200 Eggs or More at a Time 

The TVishbone Single Section is 4 incubators in 
1 — the four separate compartments, 200-egg8 
each, can be set altogetheror one at a time. All 
are heated by one wonderful 'Wishbone blue- 
flame burner that requires no chimney, has no 
wicks and uses a 3-gallon tank that needs re- 
filling only once a week. No odor, no mess, it 
can go into any room in the house. The Single 
Section is the best way you can enter the lucra-

During incubation test the eggs on the 
eighth and the fourteenth days and remove 

the infertile ones.

Breeding from a male lacking in consti-

We all have a preferen«'e in both breed 
and variety and it is reasonable to expect 
that from them wa can get our best results. 
But we all should be fair minded enough 
to recognize good qualities in other kinds
