Items of Interest to Ererjr Poultry
Raiser About Hatching and
Care of Chickens
Green feed for poultry is cut fine
in a feed-cutter and fed In a. green
feed hopper. In a hopper it stays
together and remains succulent
much longer than when thrown upon
the floor or into the yards and scat
tered around by the fowls.
A catching coop is of use on the
poultry farm when fowls are treated
for lice, vaccinated for cluckenpox,
or when culled, graded or moved. It
saves labor and less danger of Injur
ing the fowls.
A can or barrel large enough to
hold a week's supply of grain in each
poultry-pen eaves time and labor. A
slonting top preventes the fowls from
roosting on it.
Poultry meat is canned by many
Oregon housewives and with simple
methods a good tasting meat pre
serve is made. By the following
method a 2-pound dressed fowl gives
about 1 pint of solid meat and 1 pint
The raw meat is taken from the
bones and cut up so it will go into
the Jars easily. It is packed tightly
in cleaned!, tested, glass jars to 1
inch of th3 top. A half teaspoon of
salt and seasoning is added, but no
water. Covers with new rubbers are
placed lightly on the jars. Then the
jars are put into a tightly covered
container, like1 the presure canner
of steam cooker, but a washboiler
or sapbucket will also do. The
vater is heated to 4 boilding fAnt
and the meat sterilized 4 to 5 l'ours.
Before taking the cans from the
sterilizer ,then are tightly sealed,
when these jars are stored in a dark
and coo3 place the meat k remains
good fen a long time.
