Natural and A rtificial Methods
Of Incubating and Brooding Chicks
Expert Tells of Main Difficul-
ties Encountered in Trying
to Raise Poultry
By PROF. O. C. UFFORD.
The poultryman who raises but a
few chickens will usually do his in
cubating and brooding with the hen.
His success will depend upon his
care and management of her.
One of the main difficulties is often
to secure the broody hen early
enough in the spring to produce
For the selection and setting of a
broody hen, observe the following
Hens of the general purpose breeds
or medium size are usually the best
for hatching and brooding.
' Remove the broody hen carefully
to her permanent quarters. Usually
night is the best time. Confine her
until she is used to her new nest. A
few artificial eggs placed under her
will help to make her satisfied.
Provide a roomy nest about 14 to
IS inches square. Make the nest shal
low so the eggs will roll apart when
the hen steps in.
Don't set the hen in the laying
house where other fowls can disturb
Always treat the setting hen for
lice with a good louse powder or
Don't confine the hen too long or
too closely to the nest or she will
foul the eggs.
It is better to wipe the dirty eggs
with a damp cloth than to leave them
Remove droppings from nest.
Feed the hen her usual ration, elim
inating moist or laxative feeds.
Keep hen confined when chicks are
J hatching. Don't disturb her.
The number ot chicks a hen will
brood depends upon her size and the
weather conditions. She can usually
care for 10 to 15 chicks early in the
spring and a larger number as the
weather becomes warrrti f
A serviceable coop is of the great
est importance for sucessful brooding.
It should have at least the following
It should afford protection from
drafts, unfavorable weather conditions
and any of the natuiai exemies of the
It should be so constructed that it
can be easily cleaned or moved with

There are many good types of
coops that may be adopted if they
possess the above requirements.
Many people have trouble in operat
ing an incubator successfully. How
ever, in spite of difficulties, the mod
ern incubator has its place and plays
an important part in the poultry in
dustry. It has many advantages over
It is cheaper to run a 100-egg in
cubator than it is to feed and care for
the number of hens that would be re
quired to hatch 100 eggs. It is better
to keep the hens lajing.
A flock of incubator hatched chicks
are more uniform in size than chicks
hatched at different periods by hens.
The incubator is more practical for
the poultry man raising a large flock.
Custom hatching and the day-old
chick business is made possible by the
incubator and is becoming an import
ant branch of the poultry industry.
Hatching of eggs with the modern in
cubator is a success.
Choice of Incubator.
The cheapest machine is not always
the best and vice versa. An incubator
should be substantially constructed of
good material and well insulated. The
regulating device and lamp should be
accessible for cleaning and repairing
and simple of construction. t
In running an incubator it is gen
erally advisable to fallow the direc
tions of the manufacturer. However,
here are a few practical suggestions
that can be applied to the running of
The incubator that has been used
should be well cleaned before using

water and disinfect the interior. Ex
amine egg tray and replace with new
bottom if necessary.
Test thermostat and see that all
parts are working freely by screwing
nut until nearly all the play is taken
up; then hold a lighted match several
inches below thermostat. The disc
over the lamp should raise quickly.
Many hatches have been spoiled due
to a defective thermostat. See that
disc hangs evenly over vent on lamp.

Examine burner and if it is not in
good condition, replace with a new
one. A dirty burner may be cleaned
by boiling in water containing some
baking soda or 'washing powder. Put
in a new wick. A soggy or dirty wick
may be cleaned as the burner.
Clean lamp chimney and see that it
fits on burner.
Adjust seat of lamp so chimney fits

Trim the wick, cutting straight
across the top and then flipping off
each corner, to give an oval flame.
Fill three-quarters full, and light

flame at first, as the size of the flame
will increase as the lamp heats up.
A high flame before the flues warm

Loosen the adjustments on the reg

Run the machine for at least 48
hours to be sure that it is properly
regulated and that the temperature
will remain constant.
After the machine has once been
adjusted and the temperature is con

Care of the Lamjp.
Lamp must be filled once daily.
Trim wick at time of filling hy turn
ing wick down and rubbing the
charred portion ,off even with the top
of wick guide with a match.
Keep lamp and burner clean.
Do not turn flame up too high after
placing lamp back on machine.
If the incubator is a hot air type
in which there is a maximum amourtt
of ventilation and particularly if it is
to be operated in a dry room, a sand
tray covering the entire bottom of
machine may be necessary to supply
sufficient moisture. In such case the
sand should be thoroughly moistened
when starting up the machine. If less
moisture is required the same pan
may be used without sand, as less
water will evaporate from free water
surface than from the moist sand.
Only warm water should be used
after eggs are placed in the incu
bator. Care of the Eggs.
Place the eggs in the machine and
do not disturb them for two days.
On the third day begin turning the
eggs night and morning. Continue this
until they begin to pip (chick pushes
bill through shell) about the eight
eenth or nineteenth day, at which
time close up the machine and do not
open until hatching is over. This is
Sprinkle the floor underneath the
machine at night and morning.
Don't leave the door of the machine
open while turning the eggs.
Don't handle eggs with kerosene on
. Don't leave without being sure the
lamp flame is O. K. and not smoking.
Be sure the lamp fits up tight
against the chimney.
Don't lay wearing apparel on top of
the machine. It may interfere with
the regulating device.
Don't forget to fill and clean lamp
Keep records of your incubator.
For the successful and 'most eco
nomical brooding of a large or small
flock I have found that the Colony
stove brooder produces the most sat
isfactory results. They are conven
ient, easy to clean and operate and
provide a perfect control of tempera
ture. Chilling is one of the most common
troubles the poultry man has to con
tend with in raising young chicks in
a brooder. Nine cases out of ten of
what is know as white diarrhoea are
nothing more than a diarrhoea result
ing from the chicks becoming chilled.
Chirks nncf rhillpH arp 9 mfnir. in
the flock. They are more susceptible
to disease, keep dropping off, even
after they have attained a large size.
The cost of a Colony stove brooder
is within reach of the average poultry
man raising 200 to 300 chicks and for
the number of chicks they will brood
they are the most economical to op
erate. Pioneer Dies Just as
Son Starts for France
Charles Erickson, 80 years old, Ne
braska pioneer, died Friday night in
Swedish Immanuel hospital from in
firmities due to old age.
A son, John, is supposed to be leav
ing from an Atlantic port for France
some time today and P. A. Edquist,
Swedish consul, is affording all ef
forts to notify him of his father's
death before his departure.
For some time the aged man has
been failing in health and during the
last three months he had been in the
hospital for treatment. i
Mr. Erickson was born in 1838 in "
Sweden near Upsala and came to this
country in 1860.
He came to Omaha 55 years ago and
obtained holdings of land throughout
Nebraska and the Dakotas.
Mr. Erickson was well known in the
middle wst and was instrumental in
locating the first Swedish colony in
Boyd county, Nebraska, and in South
He owned large tracts of land about

ered very wealthy.
He is survived by a son, John, and
