Important to See That
Goslings Are Kept Dry
Goslings should not be removed from
;he nest until the third day after hatch
.nir, as It is Important t see that they
nre quite dry, and should be kept
warm and dry until they are feathered
They should not bo fed until thirty
six to forty-eight hours old, at the
same time be offered a lukewarm drink.
Their Hist lew days' feed consists of
oatmeal, hard-boiled egg and shorts or
bran, thoroughly mixed to a crumbly
mass. Lettuce or red clover chopped
line and mixed with the food serves
us a tonic and is greatly relished by
them. Feed every two or three hours
Just what they will clean up quickly.
After the first few days the egg may bo
omitted and the food slightly mois
tened, but never be fed snippy, sticky,
oor too dry; cornmeal may also bo
milled to the mixture.
After the tlrst few eeks gradually
begin feeding cracked corn and shorts
or bran, mixed and moistened as stated
above; whole wheat may be added to
the above mixture, but a great portion
should be grass food.
They should not ro allowed to get
wet; their water should always bo
fresh but not cold, and plenty of sand
should always be near, though the
Hind should never be mixed with their
Goslings require dry and warm quar
ters at night, at the same time plenty
of ventilation, and their quarters kept
clean and sanitary; damp quarters will
muse them to become lame. Their

Shade for Young Stock
Is of Great Importance
The Importance of shade for young
stock should be constantly kept in
mind, especially for late hatched chicks
which have not had an opportunity to
get a good start before the scorching
weather sots In.
These chicks must be pushed nlong
without a letup, given every advantage
of proper feeding and care. If this Is

Caused by Common Mold

sleepy, with feathers milled and tho
head drawn down; breathing Is la
bored and the windpipe Is patched
with the mold spores. The disease
usually Is not cured once it attacks tho
chirks, and when a brooder is known
to be contaminated It should be fumi
gated, the old rfraw removed nnd
fresh litter proUded. and the poultry
dying from this disease should always

Excellent for Turkeys
An open shed or u shed with tho

after each litter Is finished. The first
litter Is usually about l eggs, tho
