will lay as many eggs the second sum

are doubtful layers and should twills-
Kised of, In many Instances whole
flocks are allowed to run without killing
off the old ones" the result of which Is
few eggs lu proportion to tint number of
hens and nnue disease in tlie thick, Old
hun usually become buy and fat, A
good pin ii Is to keep enough pullets for
laying and sell the old fal hens.
