Poultry Problems Loom
Up In Hot Weather
Chickens do better through hot
weather if provided with plenty of
shade, says University Extension
Poultrymen. It .paTs to provide
artificial shade if there are no trees
or bushes. Over crowding often re
sults in disaster in hot weather. A
coop that is large enough to hold
the baby chicks will not do when
they are two or three months old.
Growing chicks require plenty of
room. Many people obtain rom by
culling the flock, marketing many of
the cockerels and pullers, retaining
only the vigorous birds as breeders,
for these are the only ones that re
turn a profit.
Sowing vacant places in corn to
rape or cane will offset some of the
loss of a poor corn stand. Rape
sowed at" the last cultivating makes
excellent feed for sheep. Some
farmers also follow the practice of
discing wheat or oat stubble' and
Easy To Trap Flies.
One of the most effective meth
ods of getting rid f flies is the fly
trap. It consists of a square frame
work covered with screen, with a
pyramid bottom thru which the flies
enter. The trap is very effective
and almost bushels of flies can be
caught in a summer. Full direc
tions for making the trap are given
in extension house equipment cir
