IN THE BASEMENT,
' It 1 Just a Important to locate the
Incubator In a Rultubln place a to have
a machine that will produce good
chicks. The beat Incubator made can
not do well unices It 1 properly lo
cated and given correct attention.
Freeh air I essential. When the In
cubator Is placed In the residence It
will give best results In a room where
there la a uniform temperature and
plenty of ventllutlon. A window
should be partly open eicept In ex
tremely cold weather.
The Incubator should be placed In
a room to lUelf when possible. A
good cellar or basement 1 the best
pise for an Incubator If vegetables,
oils or other article which give off
gnae or odor are not stored there.
Th machine should be set perfectly
level, then run for at least two days
and nights before the ergs sre placed
In It lie sure to have the right tem
perature and understand the working
of the machine . It la a good plan to
place a paper over the egg tray when
teating out the machine, lly ao doing
practically the same apuce to heat Is
provided that will be used when the
cgiis are In tbe machine. When the
Incubator Is empty the thermometer
will reud a little lower than It would
If th machine were full, for aa the
eggs become warmed they rals the
temperature allghtly. I!y ualng tbe
paper over tbe egg truy a fairer test
will be tecured.
I'laclng an Incubator In a bedroom
or living room la not advisable. Tbe
fumee from the lamp are not beat for
a Bleeping person to breathe. Even
with the window open at night It Is
beat to keep the Incubator out of bed
rooma unlesa there la no other conven
ient place. The living room lacks the
uniform temperature thst brings beat
reaults. Too often tbe room Is hot
during the day and rather cold at
night Tbls usually causes trouble In
regulating tbe Incubator to bold a uni
form temperature In the machine.
The Incubator should not be placed
In the aame room In the basement with
tbe furnace. The ga and dust from
the furnace are detrimental.
Special rooms In the bssement or a
rrgulnr Incubstnr cellar give an Ideal
location for Incubator. Uniformity
of temperature and plenty of ventila
tion without too much evaporation and
no drafts, give the Incubator the
proper surrounding. When two or
more machine are used It will pay to
provide auch a place.'
Very tittle beat la necessary In the
Incubator room unles It Is necessary
to air the egg. The better machine
are so constructed that the egga are
removed only for turning. If this Is
the esse the Incubator can be run suc
cessfully after March 1 where there
I no beat but It muat be protected
and free from drafts.
It takes a good Incubstor properly lo
cated and carefully attended to substi
tute for the aettlng hen. A ben will
leave her nest for fifteen to twenty
minute even In cold weather, yet pro
duce a good number of chicks. Fur
ther, the chicks will be strong and vig
orous If from the right sort of a flock.
A good Incubator will hatch Just a
successfully and Just aa itrong chicks
If given th chance. Too often a per
eon running an Incubator will take
more care of the machine than be does
of the egg. The Incubator should be
used as a nieana to helping the egg to
produce a good, livable chick Instead
of a method of forcing every egg to
hatch. To a large extent this differ
ence can be brought about through
better care of the eggs and proper lo
cation of the lncubutor. Noel Hall,
