Lengthen Tha Han's Day
Lengthen the hen's working day
during the winter months by means
of artificial light in the poultry
house and thereby increasing her
feed consumption with a view to
greater egg production is advisable
according to a bulletin isssued by
United States Department of Agri
culture. Overstimulation of the hen
however, may cause a spring molt
or other undesirable results with a
consequent lowered egg yield. The
laying hen should be regarded as a
machine for the manufacture of
eggs, which, If operated under too
high pressure, will be worn out pre
maturely. A 200-nound hoe will render
about 20 to 25 pounds of lard. A

Chicken bedbugs are commonj
They come out at .night and attack
the hens then hide during the day.
They draw considerable blood and
their bites irritate the hens so they
often lose flesh and even stop lay
ing. The best thing to do is to spray
the chicken houses with one of the
wood preservatives, such as carbo
lineum or with crude petroleum or
creosote oil. You'll need from 3 to
5 gallons of the spray for a house
which holds 200 hens. Spray it on
with a good force pump. Drive the
liquid into the cracks in the wood.
