XIII. -Poultry Parasites
By C. V. GREGORY.
Author of "Homo Gourso In Modern
Copyright. 1909, by American Preti
THE most discouraging thing
about the poultry business Is
the great number of put-unites
and ailments which nffect the
Hock. Unless special precautions are
taken the fowls aro continually dying
from 0110 cause or another, and tho
profits bliriuk correspondingly. Most
of theso troubles aro easily prevent
ithlo If n little care is taken. Ouc of
the most lmportnnt considerations Is
Cleanliness. The house should be
Cleaned out frequently and sprinkled
ivlth quicklime or some disinfectant.
Lime scattered about tho yards also
helps. The coops and smaller build
tigs should bo moved from place to
laco frequently. Whitewash should
bo used liberally everywhere. One of
tho best kinds of whitewash Is mado
according to whnt is known as tho
government formula, as follows:
Slack half a bushel of llino in boil
ing water. Strain and ndd n peck of
salt that tins been dissolved in warm
water, three 3uuds of ground rlco
boiled to a thlu paste, one-half pound
powdered Spanish whiting, ono pound
of glue dissolved In warm water. Mix
these well and then let tho mixture
stand for several days. Heat hoforo
using and apply hot.
Importanco of Pure Water.
One Important menus of keeping
fowls healthy and ono that is often
neglected Is giving them a constant
supply of pure water. Becnuso fowls
do not require water In ns largo quan
tities as other animals It Is often
thought that they can get along with
out any except what they, got In pud
dles In the barnyard. They will drink
such water If they can get no other,
but It Is Jut.) ns bad for their health
us It would be for yours. This Is a
matter which Is too often overlooked,
and poultry raising for profit becomes
Impossible on that account.
Water put out In open troughs soon
becomes warm and dirty, and If there
should happen to be a contagious dis
ease In the Hock It will be inpldly
spread through tho wnter. A common
hog waterer attached to a barrel on
tho shady side of tho poultry house Is
one of tho best ways of supplying wa
ter. If tilled once a week Kor so no
further attention Is needed. A Jug
J' or large bottle of water Inverted over
a shallow pun In such a manner thnt
tho opening Is Just covered by the
water In tho pan makes a good drink
lug fountain. The water will run
down into the pan us fast as It Is used.
Thoro are several types of metal foun
tains ou tho market which work on
this sumo principle. Most of them nro
cheap and satisfactory.
A considerable factor in causing dis
ease among fowls Is Improper feeding.
Overfeeding and feeding too much soft
food are tho enysos of a large percentage
of the deaths among young chicks.
In older fowls the corn ration thnt Is
so often the sole food Is frequently
the cause of digestive and other trou
bles. A variety of foods Judiciously
fed will do much to keep the fowls
Another cause of disease In unhealthy
surroundings. Low, damp poultry
yards, where the water stands In pud
dles for days after each ruin, are pro
line sources of poultry troubles. Ilavo
the poultry house high and dry. If a
dry yard cannot be obtained In any
other way grade It up n little and cover
It with gravel.
Strong Vitality Necessary.
Many of tho diseases to which poul
try Is subject are due to InhorKcd
weakness. Experiments have proved
that vitality and vigor aro readily
transmitted from parent to offspring
In an experiment nt the Cornell sta
tion two pens of fowls were selected
Ono had especially strong vitality, and

the other was only medium In this re-f-pect.
Tho progeny of each of these
pens was given the same kind of
feed mul care, and In the fnll the re
tults were tabulated. It was found
Hint the chlckeiiB from tho strong vi
tality peus matured from thrco to
four weeks earlier and were worth 3
cents apiece moro nt maturity. It Is
this lack of selection for vitality that
muses so many of tho fancy varieties
to run out. Vitullty is the most im
Iwrtnnt single point to be looked to
In poultry raising, especially In select
ing fowls for the breeding pen. If
cueli selection Is made, the health and
vigor of tho flock will bo grently Im
proved nnd the losses correspondingly
Poultry Is subject to a few con
tagious diseases, which often wipe out
almost tho entire flock. These dis
eases, like contagious diseases of man,
aro caused by bacteria or germs.
These nro tiny cells which gain en
trance to tho body npd grow there.
Death Is not caused by the germs
themselves, but by ceitnln poisons
which they give off, After germs gnln
entrance to the body they nro dltllcult
to combat, slnco anything thnt will kill
tho germ will usually kill the fowl
also. Germs cannot gain a foothold
In n perfectly healthy bird: hence one
of the best means of combating con
tagious diseases Is by keeping the
Hock so healthy that they cannot get
a start. Another lmportnnt measure
Is tho liberal use of disinfectants
about the poultry houses nnd yards
Plenty of sunshine In the poultry house
will help to keep It clenn. Selling off
tho old stock hoforo It becomes feeble
nnd useless Is a great help, slnco It Is
these old birds thnt are tho first to
succumb to unfavorable conditions.
One of the most serious of thco con
tagious diseases Is cholera. The com
mon symptoms are great thirst, llsl
lossness and yellowish or greenish
droppings. Heroic measures nro need
ed to stamp out this disease. All sick
fowls should be killed nnd burned.
Tho yards and houses should be thor
oughly sprinkled with somo disinfect
ant solution. A coal tar dip mixture
Is good, or carbolic acid may bo used
nt tho ralo of ono gallon to twenty gal
lons of water. The drinking wnter
should bo disinfected by adding one
part of corrosive sublimate to every
2,000 parts of water. There Is no way
to euro tho fowls after they onco get
the disease. All that can bo hoped for
Is to mi vo tho well ones.
Probnbly tho most common poultry
dlscaso Is roup. This Is really a germ
dlsense, but tho germs cannot well
get n foothold except under special
conditions. Those nro found when tho
bird catches cold. Tho germs work
mostly In tho nasal passages, causing
n cheesy secretion that has a very dls
no. xxvi thai nest in oi-eiiation.
agreeable odor. The head swells, tho
oyes ofton being swollen entirely shut.
An directed bird may live for a long
tlmo and sometimes even get well, hut
It Is seldom worth anything. The
treatment consists In killing the af
fected birds nnd removing the cause.
Exposure to cold nnd dampness Is
among the chief causes. A dry. warm
hou&o, especially one with n curtain
front to provide for plenty of ventila
tion without drafts, Is one of the best
preventive measures. The curtained
roosting nparimout also helps to keep
the fowls from cntehlug cold In sovoro
Llco and f.'ltcs.
Tho most troublesome parasites of
poultry aro lice and mites. These
pests nro very different In their habits.
The lice remain 011 the bird all the
time, eating tho feathers and skin.
They nro not usually present In large
enough numbers to do any couslder
nblo damage, except to sitting hens
nnd small chicks. One of the most
effective means of combating lice Is
the dust bath. This Is simply a con
venient sized box filled with line dust
in which the nous can roll. Llco mid
other Insects hrentho through tiny
holes along the sides of their bodies.
Tho dust fills these holes, and they die
of Miffocntlon, A Httlo turpentine add
ed to tho dust bath mnkes It more ef
fective. Tho dust treatment Is usually all that
Is required to keetf the lice In check.
Where they get unusually bad pyre
thrum or tobacco dust blown lu among
the feathers is effective. This plan
takes too long to bo used extensively,
however. Lice frequently ir.uke tin!
way from tho hen to tho chicks nt
batching time and often , cause the
death of tunny of them. Tho best way
to prevent tills, of course. Is to see
that the hens are free from llco be
fore the chickens hatch. One of the
best remedies Is to dust tho chicks
with Insect powder or paint them
around the neck nnd under tho wings
with a sulphur nnd lard mixture.
Mites nro much worse pests than
lice. They live In tho crevices In the
walls and roosts, attacking the fowls
at night. They do not eat the skin,
but bore through It nnd suck the blood.
Mites are so small that they can
hardly be seen with the naked eye, but
the damage they do Is uot measured
by their size. Llulf the so culled dis
eases to which poultry are subject are
caused by mites. When fowls sicken
nnd die without any apparent cause It
Is time to look for mites. Painting the
roosts nnd adjacent walls thoroughly
with crude petroleum or keroseuo will
destroy muny of them. The same
treatment should also he applied to
coops nutl nest boxes. The litter un
der the roosts Is often n breeding place
for mites. It should be cleaned out
frequently nnd hauled away. After
cleaning out, the lloor should be thor
oughly soaked with a strong solution
of some coal tar dip. If the poultry
house Is fairly tight burning sulphur
In It will effectively destroy nil mites
within rench of tho fumes. Keeping
vermin and disease in check requites
considerable work and constnut vigi
lance, but It Is work that will be well
repaid iu the improved health of the
