that have not enough to occupy their
time and attention. When they once
get a la-te of the meaty end of the
fe.ithfir they are liable to extend their
picking to something more than
feathers, ttking advantage of the
naked ondition of their companions
by nipping at ex weed bloody parts,
and allowing the poor hens no peace
till they or their male are taken oat
of the pen. During the winter con-1
rlnenieut of fowls they should be kept
a busy a possible by scattering their
grain among leaves and chad", so that
hard scratching will be neceat-aiy on
their part in order to got enough to

liable to keep them out of mischief.
