Should Grind 6*U Wheri Feeding Poultry While new oats are one of the best farm grains for .poultry;, they should not make up the entire grain ration unless they are pulverized -ind balanced with- pro- 'tein and minerals, county extension director A. L. Brown said this week. Brown said he' has received reports from W. : R, Whitfield, Iowa State college poultry specialist, which point out the danger of digestive troubles,'' In the farm flock when : hevir.- oats are fed too heavily without grinding. When chickens are forced to eat the whole oats they get too much of the coarse hulls. This often causes mipasted gizzards. If the chickens are being fed cafeteria style, along; with Other grains,-the oats need not be pulverized. This ration also should be balanced with proteins and minerals, and there should be an ample supply of grit available. Correction • ' Last week's hospital news listed Mrs. Geo.
