FOR tHICKENS? When you more than double the »!ze of flock to 500 laying hens, you Increate profit for the year to $800 on up to $1,250. Fbrm ttudie* thow that it doesn't take a lot more time to care for the bigger poultry ^project. So a bigger flock makes a better return per hour of chore time. With 200 you should make $1.50 an hour. With 500, you can increase return to $2.50 per hour. Just how much money should you make from poultry in 1957? That, of course, depends on size of flock, how many eggs you get and whether you get top grade price. If you -have a flock of 200 hens that do pretty well, they should return a labor profit of $2.00 to $2.50 a hen above all costs for chicks, growing feed, laying feed, your own grain and other costs. A flock of 200 should clear $400 to $500. Size alone will not turn a poultry flock into one of the better.pgying enterprise! on the farm. You must have high production. Start with a strain of chicks capable of laying at least 200 eggs per bird yearly preferably 225 to 230 flock average. The good hybrids and best egg-strain pure* bred* will do it — when fed good rations from day old right through the laying year. When you save time, you eave money . . .
