The lazy man never makes ends meet
on a poultry farm. Drones can never
expect to have hens keep them in idle
ness. It is not the state of the market that
causes failure in poultry-keeping, but
the state of mind of the poultry keeper.
At least once a week the hens shonld
have a feeding of charcoal, or nubbins
of corn on the ear may be burned nnd
fed. At this nenson, after a long winter's
confinement in small pens nnd before art
i nbundnnce ol green food can beoutained,
I the charcoal will be found a good nlter
i native, and an improved condition will
follow its use.
