The expert aye can readily detect
laying heni among a flock of nonlay
ers. Protestor Kent gtvea the follow
ing rules observed at Cornell, aome of
which were worked out eome year
ago by the Connecticut.' experiment
station: : '
Yellow-legged birda quickly lay off
the color in tltelr shanka when they
are laying. A hen which ia laying
heavily almost loses the yellow color
out of her shanka. After molting the
yellow color returns quickly. '..v'v .
Examination of the ear lobe la con
sidered to be almost infallible. A
chalky white ear lobe indicates a bird
is laying heavily, whereas a cream-col'
ored one shows the bird ia laying mod
erately, has just started or baa just
stopped. A mijk-colored ear lobe
shows the hen has laid slightly or has
stopped laying.' A very yellow or dark
ear lobe indicates the hen haa not laid
at all. ' -
It is to be remembered that an ex
tremely white ear lobe also may mean
very tew vitality.
The more velvety the texture of the
comb of a hen is the better is her
health, and it ia almost a certain sign
abe ia laying heavily.
Out of 40 hens under observation at
Cornell, six with chalky white ear
