Ducks Grow Quickly and
Excel in Laying Ability
In considering the iosslblllties of tho
poultry Industry, the heavy egg poduc

the duck should not be overlooked.
Ducks will lay more eggs man chick
ens and will, if properly ted and han
dled, weigh six pounds each at nine tc
ten weeks of age.
Unlike chickens, lucks may bo
housed In very inexpensive houses. Ono
Indiana woman vvh( a few years ago
nolil over .$1,100 worth of ducks In a
year, housed them In rail pens covered
with straw, at a cost of less than SIC
for thu entire flock. However, their
pens must be well bedded with clean,
dry straw, as n duck with cold feet will
not lay. A well-drained location should
be chosen for duck pens, as low, damn,
ground soon becomes unsanitary.
In duck raising, as In all other
branches of the poultry Industry, It la
wisest to start with a small number of
birds or eggs, learning as you proceed,
rather than to plunge in to "make or
break," which to the beginner usually
means break. A large, well-matured
drake mated to five to seven thrifty
ducks will produce 00 to 100 ducks,
which Is about as many as the small
poultrymnn or farmer's wife can enre
Unless the brooding quarters are
warm, ducks should not be batched too
early, as the loss from chilling and
cramps will offset the gains from ah
Feeding Young Turkeys
Is Not Difficult Task
Feeding young turkeys Is nbout tho
same as feeding young chicle, and as
n first feed for the poult they may be
given stale bread, soaked In milk nnd
squeezed dry, to n crumbly state, nnd
mixed with finely chopped hard-boiled
eggs, cracker crumbs and dandelions.
Feed them the food frequently,
every two hours for the first couple of
days, after which they shotrnl be given
grain feed of wheat, oats and barley,
eqttnl parts, ground together and suf
ficiently fine for them at this tender
After the poults have reached two
weeks in age, feed them n mash oC
equal parts of cornmenl and tho
ground grain feed, moistened with
sweet milk, to which should be added
n small amount of finely cut meat, and
feed at least three times dally, If con
fined in runs, or twice dally, mornings
nnd evenings, when allowed to range.
Grit Is necessary, and n liberal sup
ply should always be nenr at iiand.
Charcoal Is excellent for the poults,
nnd at times some should be used In
Free Choice System of
Mash Feed for Chickens
A study of the free choice system of
mnsh feeding for chickens made by
the United States Department of
Agriculture at its experiment farm
located at Heltsvllle, Mil., showed thnt
the best results and highest egg pro
duction are obtained when hens are
allowed to select their own mash con
stituents. It was found that hens se
lected a mash composed of CO parts
cornmeal, lit! parts meat scrap, 4, parts
wheat bran and 4 parts wheat mid
dlings. This mash gives best results
with Leghorns, and a less stimulating
mash, containing more bran and
ground oats, with less meat scrap, has
glvt'ii better results with general-purpose
Light Breed Cockerels
Should Be Sold Early
Light breed cockerels should bo sold
early; it seldom pays to feed them to
maturity. If broilers are early It payc
best to sell the fowls when two or
three pounds in weight rather than to
keep till heavier. This Is especially
so when the sexes cannot be separated
and where the runs are smjlll, the pul
lets will soon require all the room and
green feed available.
Never use a fowl that Is known to
be constitutionally weak In the breed

turkeys do best on land which is high
