Lee Coleman, Too Much Fat Mokes Turkey Expensive Dish - A 'torn turkey not much older than.five months is the buy for'the Thanksgiving shopper who wants the most, lean meat for the money on the roast bird. Tills Is the conclusion from studies of the fattening of .turkeys made by poultry scientists of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. Tlie studies showed [hat young turkeys do not put on much fat until they are at least 20 weeks ^old. After this age the young 1 hens fatten more rapidly than the young tonis. By the age of 32 weeks a hen may have fattened so much that 28 per cent of her total weight Is fat. Young toms, on the other hand, do not begin to fatten much until they are 24 to 28 weeks old. .They may then put on un to 20 per cent of their weight in fat. So the shopper who at Thanksgiving buys a 20-pound dressed lien turkey, hatched in early April, will pay for more than five pounds of fat. A' dressed torn of about.the snme age and weight will have only four pounds of fat. A younger torn, hatched in May, wil] have little or no excess fat. As every good cook knows, a'.little fat makes turkey tender and Juicey, rather than dry, and adds flavor to the bird, the dressing arid the gravy. Too much fat, however, makes a turkey expensive when bought by the pound. county home demonstration agent. 'An eeg is nearly three-fourths wn!er, and when the hens' drinking writer becomes icy cold or 'frozen, , less water is consumed arid a reduction in egg production', follows.

It is especially Important; 1 the liens have drinkable water early -in the morning:, she said. Improper ventilation in'a henhouse, which Is usually indicated by a damp litter, may be caused by overcrowding. A house 1 Is -said to be overcroivdcd when it has more than one hen for each three square feet of floor-space.-.'..•< •'..; •Having the house closed''too tightly may.also be a .cause of jvet litter, the home demonstration agent added.
