If the Mother Hsn Is Confined the Poults Are Always Able to Hover Under
Her When They Are Colo.
(Prepared by the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture.)
Turkeys, where there Is plenty of
range, are a profitable side line upon
the general farm, for the cost of rais-
ing them Is small and the profits large.
The number raised In the United
States is gradually decreasing, how-
ever. This is due to a number of
causes, a serious one being the high
mortality umong the young poults.
Careful management will greatly re-
duce this loss, according to the United
States department of agriculture poul-
First Week Dangerous.
The average number of poults
raised under ordinary conditions Is
about fiO per cent of those hatched
out, or about 7 poults for every turkey
hen. By for the greater port of the
loss occurs when the poults are under
a week old. Seldom are any lost aft-
er they are a month old unless there
Is an outbreak of disease. The high
mortality among young poults Is main-
ly caused by exposure to dnmpness
and cold, improper feeding, close con-
finement, lice, predatory animals, or
inherent weakness. The lust-named
cause Is the result of carelessness
In selection of pnrent stock.
As soon as the hatch Is completed
and the poults begin to run around
outside the nest the hen and brood
are ready to be removed to the coop
provided for them. The coop should
be built to keep out rain; It should
be well ventilated, capable of easy
movement, and he sufficiently roomy
for a turkey hen to stand erect und
walk about. There should be a sep-
arate coop for each hen and brood,
and the coops should he scattered
about the farm in such places as are
easily drained nnd where natural feed,
such as tender, green vegetation
(grass, clover, alfalfa, and other green
feed), and Insects, particularly grass-
hoppers, can he found. By moving the
coop every day the ground will be
kept dean und opportunity will be
given the mother hen and poults to
pick up fresh, green feed Inside the
Plenty of exercise Is essential If the
poults are to thrive. At all times,
when rain or dampness doeB not pre-
vent, the poults should be allowed to
run In and out of the coop at will.
Too much -stress cannot be given to
the necessity of exercise, and the only
way to provide for this Is to allow the
poults at every possible opportunity
to range for feed outside the coop.
During a (long-contlnued rainy season
It Is better to allow them to run out
of the coop whenever It Is not actu-
ally raining, even though the grass Is
somewhat damp. By confining the
mother hen to the coop she will always
be ready to cover the poults when-
ever they run to her! which they will
do If they become chilled. The great-
est care should be taken to keep the
Interior of the coop dry, nnd for this
reuson It Is ndvlsable to choose n
sandy slope where tho water runs off
quickly nnd where there Is also pro-
tection from heavy rains.
Feeding the Poults.
Improper feeding, combined with
close confinement, has been the enuso
of muny fnllures In turkey raising. If
the range is plentifully supplied with
green feed, grasshoppers, nnd other
Insects, and If the wenther Is fuvor-
nble, then the best plan Is to ullow the
poults to feed themselves.
When, on account of rainy wenther
or unfavorable rnnge conditions, It Is
advlsnble to raise the poults by tho
coop method, more care must he given
to their feeding. For the first two
days nfter hatching, poults require no
feed, the yolk of the egg which they
absorb before breaking out of the
shell being sufficient to maintain them
for that length of time. Access to
coarse sand nml green feed to pick
St Is all that la needed until tho third
Beginning with the third day, tho
poults should be fed according to the
quantity of natural feed they aro able
to pick up outside tho poop, When nat-
ural feed Is scarce, or when the poulU
have to tie kept from ranging outside,
they should he fed lightly about five
times a day. If a'lowed to run outside
the coop where they cun find Insects,
seed, und groeu feed, they need not
he fed oftener than two or three times
Successful turkey raisers use many
different kinds of feed, some of the
most common being as follows; Hard-
boiled egg chopped fine and corn-bread
crumbs for the first week tnd then
whole wheat und hulled oats, stale
bread, souked In milk nnd squeesed
dry, for the first few days, nnd then
common chick feed, clabbered mlllc
seasoned with salt nnd pepper, corn-
bread crumbs; equal parts of “pin-
head" oats, whole wheat nnd cracked
com; cracked wheut; corn meal nnd
wheat bran mixed In the proportion
of 3 to 1 nnd baked into bread; bran
or middlings one-hnlf, cracked Egyp-
tian corn one-quurter, wheut uud
hulled oats one-quurter.
In addition to the ubove, skimmed
milk and buttermilk are often fed with
PACK HATCHING EGGS
FOR LONG SHIPMENTS
In Many Cases the Hatch Is
One of Best Plans I, to Uoo Common
Market Basket Wall Llnod on
Sides and Bottom With Ex-
celsior-Carton Is Good.
During the spring months hundreds
of dozens of hatching eggs are shipped
over long distances successfully but
In mnny cases the shipment appears to
affect the hntch. This Is usually duo
to the manner In which the eggs are
packed. Setting eggs can be packed
for shipment tn several different wuys.
One of the best methods Is to use
a common market bnsket well lined
on the bottom and sides with excel-
sior. Wrap the eggs In a thin layer
of paper nnd with enough excelsior
to make a ball of about three Inches
In diameter. Pack these balls tightly
In the basket, put on a cover of ex-
celsior, and over all sew a piece of
Btrong cotton cloth or push the cloth
up under tho outside rim of the basket
with a case knife. The latter method
of fastening the cloth Is much quicker
than the former nnd Just ns effective.
Eggs are also shipped safely almost
any distance when they ore packed
In n stiff pasteboard carton or box
made for this purpose, the space
around the egg being filled with either
chaff or brnn, according to egg spe-
cialists in the United Stores depart-
ment of agriculture. The pneknge is
then placed In a basket, the bottom
and sides of which are lined with ex-
celsior, nnd the spnees nt either end
of the box are packed with the same
material. On top of this package is
placed more excelsior and all Is cov-
ered with cloth, as previously de-
Extra stiff cnrdbonrd cartons made
to hold front one to several settings
may be used to ship eggs. These
boxes are fitted with a handle for car-
rying, similar to that on n market
basket. Bushel huskets are commonly
used to ship orders of from 10 to 12
settings of eggs, tho manner of pack-
ing nnd covering being the snme as
mentioned in the first method.
It is customary to rest eggs Nff
hatching for about 12 hours nfter they
nre received to allow the germ to re-
gain Its normal position before the
eggs aro pluced In the Incubator.
Dry feed Is better than a wet maith
during the first ten days.

Do not fend chicks for at least 48
hours. Many poultry keepers wait Ofl
or 72 hours.
There nre now several buttermilk
starting foods for chicks on the market
that aro very good.
Feeding chick, before they are 30
hour, old often causes cholera which
many mistake for whit, diarrhea.
