Has it for
VARIETY IN POULTRY FOOD.
■\Vatch a chicken having a (rood
range and you will be surprised at
the variety in its bill of fare. A
crumb from the table-cloth, a bug, a
blade of grass, a fallen apple, potato
paring a bit ot clover in fact, it has
been asserted that a chicken will
eat almost anything which seems not |
very much of an exaggeration.
This brings into prominence two!
facts. The variety relished and the j
large store of food that scarcely
anything else unless it were a pig,
would touch may be utilized in secur-
ing eggs and flesh. In winter when
the supply of insects and green food
is cut off, the necessity for supplying
a greater variety from the house is
apparent. Aside from grain and
ground bone there is much that may
be made to serve a good use.
Potato and turnip parings and the
refuse leaves from cabbage are all
eagerly devoured. Apple parings,
ditto. And, by the way, it seems
hardly profitable to haul apples one,
two or several miles to the cider
mill for a few cents a bushel in the
fall just because they are culls and
cannot be sold for more. Stock of
all kinds will relish them and be
benefited by their use. Even the
wild crab apples if soaked in water
over night, to partially remove the
acrid flavor and cooked until soft,
make a dainty dish in late spring,
their keeping qualities being much
better than those of the ordinary
apple. The scarcity of apples last
year was made good by at least one
woman with pumpkins for green food.
A few years ago on« who suggested
clover, save for the seed or insects it
might contain, would have been
laughed at. Yet it is now regarded
as a highly valuable food when
fiteamed. Dandelions are greedily
eaten by young chicks and would
doubtless be appreciated by old ones
as well. Thus a yard in which these
plants annoy may soon be put in
shape by simply cutting off the tops
and furnishing the chicks a daily
banquet. No plant can live unless
allowed to produce leaves, and the
persistent pruning soon tells upon
the gay dandelion. For little chicks
it will be necessary to cut the leaves
into small pieces, and if young seeds
are present, so much the better.
Itye may be sown in autumn to
serve as green feed through the
winter. Essex rape makes an in-
viting spot in mid winter,
For grit those having a sand or
gravel bed to furnish the winter
store are in luck Broken crockery
or even clinkers from the hard-coal
burner may be used in lieu of these.
Think twice before destroying
any plant growth, for the chances
are that in some way it might be
easily reduced to an available form
for the poultry.—Bessie L. Putnam.
