that the three-finger layer Is the
pr6f!table hen and that the two
finger layer is the poor layer, but
experience', and close attention to
the two-finger layer will proYe to
youl that she! can; PC just as good
and will lay just as many eggs in
a year as tbe three-finger layer.
Then again. It is said' that a .hen.
with meaty . pelvic bones is not
good. We wiir find' that is also
a mistake. Experience teaches the
contrary. Give these hens a
chance and you will see for your
self. They cleim that there is a
bone tendency for meat and a
bone tendency for. eggs, and. that
the' meaty pelvic bdne hen will not
producea large number of eggs.
That is aso a mistake. Help the
hen to lay by feeding the kind of
food .that makes plenty of whites.J
Most any grain will make yolks.
There are many ) feed' formulas
that are good, but they must be
fed In the right way." A hen must1
drink lots of jwater to lay well,
and It must not be ice water in the
winter time, as water too cold will
Btotf them form laying: Give good
rresh, clean water every day and
plenty of it. " Keep bran " before
them at all times, Grain must be
fed in straw iot1 lass ' than ignt
inches deeps, fori hens. Cracked
grain is better, wheat or corn.
Feed so? that the hens get plenty
of early and late exercise. This
also means' health to your flock,
and more- eggs.. The hen that has
a long, broad back, wide spread of
ribs, deep' body,' Bhort keel' bone,
large abdomen, ttt in add pliable
pelvic bones is'- bfeually the best
layer. She should also' have a
Rmall head and full eye. A hen
with long; toe pails ig not a-good
worker and not a profitable hen.

sharp grit, charcoal, oyster shells,
