Pays to Market Spring
Cockerels at Two Pounds
With the present price of feeds,
says the Ohio Agricultural college,
farmers cannot nlTord to keep their
spring-hatched cockerels until tlio
holiday season to i.ell them. After ft
growing cockerel reaches 1', to 2
rounds It Is nu luelllclent consumer
of feed for meat production.
The price of cockerels Is nlwajs
higher during the spring and summer
months than In tho fall when many
farmers dispone of their surplus
cockerels. The slump In price Is du
to two causes: (1) The large size
cockerel Is less desirable on tho table.
(2) Tho cockerel must compcto on th
market with the surplus heun, with a
resulting slump In price.
In case the cockerels art- kept until
fall they should bo crate fattened,
as they will then bring k premium on
the market. The birds Mould be con
fined In a small coop or fattening bat
tery and fed twice a day on the fol
lowing ration: 70 poundn of corn meal,
!!() pounds high grade nhorts or mid
dllngs, and 10 pounds of wheat bran.
This should be mixed with sufllclent
sour skim milk or butter milk to mnka
a mixture of the consistency of n thick
The birds should he starved 12 hours
after putting In the crate a ml then
fed all they will clean up of the above
feed In 10 minutes.
The amount of feed fed can be grnd
ualy Increased until two full feeds Ik
day have been supplied. No water
should be given during tho feeding
A gain of 2.rt to -10 per cent can b
made In 12 to 1-1 days.
Geese Will Bring Very
Good Margin of Profit

ure to watch a little gosling pop out
of tho shell and see It grow to ma
turlty would bo surprised to knew
In bow short n time It Is done. At
llrst It Is n llttlo downy fellow,
weighing not over four ounces; a
round, Huffy little 'ball of wool. Tho
wing feathers and breast foathcra
start to grow llrst. They will con
tinue to have a downy appearance
until they become two or threa
months eld and then the feathers
will begin to replace the down. Dur
ing their growth they will generally
average an additional pound for each'
month, From n commercial stand
point the geese will bring u very good
margin of profit, for the cost of feed
ing them Is very smnll where they can
range upon vegetation. The demand
Ht tho mnrkets for these fowls dur
ing tho holidays Is much greater than
tho supply, and the prices at which
this product sells at this period should
be a good Inducement to those who
have tho facilities to ralso mort
peese. J
Green Feed Is Valuable "
for Its Mineral Matter
Clreen feed Is vnluable, not only for
Its succulence, which makes It pnlnt
nblo to poultry, but also becnuse It
contains mineral matter, Including nu
tritive constituents, necessnry to sus
tain life, promote growth, and assure
reproduction. Foremost among thes
constituents nre the vltamlnes, the ab
sence of which from any ration, wheth
er for humans, animals or birds, will
ultimately prove fatal.
Therefore It behooves every poultry
keeper, whether backyarder, specialist,
or farmer, to make provision for an
ample supply of green feed In some
form, and In view of the shortness of
our growing season, nnd the late
spring experienced this year, no tlm
should be lost.
Poultry Notes
Ducks should be fed wet mashesv
Wheat, oats nnd barley are the
beBt of small grains for poultry.
If your hens do not produce more
than ninety eggs' each n yenr they nre
not mnklng n profit.
Tho early chick Is stronger, more
able to overcome obstacles than his
later-hatched brother. Hugs, worms
and green feed supplement his diet.
Clennllness Is essentlnl In raising1
chickens. Sco that nil houses and
coops are thoroughly disinfected be
fore the chicks nre placed In them.
Young ducks seldom thrive on wholo
grains of any kind, and leg weakness,
tho worst foe of successful duck rais
ing, Is sure to result from Improperly
bnlnnccd rations.
